Basically, the low-down: American Gods is one of my favorite books. Michelle reviewed it and didn't like it as much as I did (you can read her review by clicking the link above), then added in her footnote "Please don’t kill me, Emer." While I might jokingly take off her head for insulting my favorites, I don't actually take offense.
Here's the thing: everyone's entitled to their own opinions. Not everyone's going to like the same story or the same movie or the same podcast
While my co-hosts and I might discuss and disagree on different books/stories or aspects of them, we fundamentally respect each other and our differing opinions (even when we're being sarcastic little jerks to each other). I think that respect of other peoples' thoughts and ideas is something we really need to cultivate more of, both within the creative community and in the world at large. And, yeah, that makes me sound like a total naive optimist, but oh well. I still think it's important.
And, no, Michelle, I'm not going to kill you. But you still need to read the Sandman comics.
Emily gets very passionate about the things she likes and loves convincing other people to read/watch them, even if they don't like it as much. She also enjoys heavy doses of sarcasm, mythology-inspired stories, and comics. She may or may not have been on a rom com binge for the last week. She's certainly not confirming or denying the rumors.
