I've read Neil Gaiman's book American Gods but wasn't impressed. He couldn't tie all the loose ends and the climax wasn't half as good as the build up. I wish he had written a sequel instead. The Amazon original series based on the books is stunning. It brings out the darkness in the book very well and keeps the viewer hooked. Hopefully, the climax in the series will be much better than the one in the book.
In fact, the series is far, far better than the book or atleast whatever I can remember of it. I am seeing this happen more and more where a series plugs all the holes in the book and the casting makes it far superior to the book.
Do catch this one.
I discovered this series on Amazon Prime and am surprised nobody is talking about it. This is from the 70s when many newsrooms only employed women as researchers and they weren't allowed to write. They could never be reporters. Researchers were paid less than half of what reporters got paid. It is the same as never having not having women in the top management and then claiming that there is complete parity between the pay of men and women. Patty gets together some of the women at her workplace and they decide to file a complaint through a lawyer.
I can't wait for season 2.
