American Gods

American Gods by Neil Gaiman is an award winner and a heavily hyped book. While there were riveting passages and some nice character build-up, I thought that the plot itself was rather weak.

Recommended if you are into mythology and particularly Norse mythology.

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan is the first book in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series for "young adults". Even though I do not fall in the aforementioned demographic, I decided to give it a whirl as I've heard mention of this novel on the Interwebz. Well, after a breezy read, my recommendation is to not bother. While it might make for good reading for young adults, I expect that it will fare pretty poorly in the hands of anybody above the age of say, eighteen.
