I don’t particularly like Gaiman’s style; it’s often a touch lazy and takes too many shortcuts. Nevertheless, there are some enjoyable pieces in here. "Instructions" is my favorite poem of his. The novella about Shadow post-American Gods is better than the book, and besides which is a meaty glimpse at life post-"Beowulf". I don’t remember liking Shadow much, but I warmed up to him in this story.
