*** Wednesday's earlier KavorkaMan antics at Christmas with the poor hapless waitress, which Shadow watches with growing discomfort. Even worse when he reveals that he put two charms on her, one to lure her in and one to make sure she will never love another. And he has done this to many others.

*** Wednesday's earlier KavorkaMan antics at Christmas with the poor hapless waitress, which Shadow watches with growing discomfort. Two peak points: Shadow likening the waitress to a fawn too young to know that it met an extremely hungry and crafty wolf and if she doesn't run ''now'', she will be ripped apart, and Shadow telling Wednesday she is barely even legal by the looks of her, to which Wednesday glibly answers he was never concerned with legality and though the women he picks generally have fathers and often brothers or even ''husbands'', he will skip town before they find out. Even worse when he reveals that he put two charms on her, one to lure her in and one to make sure she will never love another. And he has done this to many others. [[spoiler: Including Shadow's own mother. Which Shadow gets to see in part.]]

** This audiobook in particular has some bad moments, including Bilquis' line delivery in general. She has a bad over-the-top hiss, an unidentifiable fake accent, and sounds more like an extremely bad attempt at a campy 60's Catwoman than she really should.

* HilariousInHindsight: The Technical Boy is always seen smoking a cigarette that is described as giving an odor of "burned electronic components". Years later, electronic cigarettes and vaping mecame a major fad, including in the tech crowd...and sure enough, the TV series' incarnation of TB has a vape pen.

* CaptainObviousReveal: In hindsight, the fact that Low-Key Lyesmith is [[spoiler: Loki]] is ridiculously obvious and many readers (as well as Shadow) kick themselves for not seeing it sooner.



* {{Squick}}: Many examples: a man eaten by a vagina, the man-eating goddess being [[spoiler: ground into a bloody smear by a limousine,]] almost any scene in the last half of the book involving Laura...

** Media taking over Creator/LucilleBall's image on an episode of ILoveLucy and offering to show Shadow Lucy's breasts. Thankfully, Shadow turns the television off before she can do it.

* {{Narm}}: In the 10th-anniversary edition audiobook version of ''American Gods'', [[spoiler: Mad Sweeney's]] FinalSpeech is ruined for Jewish viewers because the way he pronounces "boobies" is identical to the Yiddish ''bubby'', or grandmother. What kind of fortune letter would let [[spoiler: an old drunken leprechaun]] play with her grandmothers? Perhaps he just really wanted some ChristmasCake...
