actually, i think American Gods has a feel [or tone,
or style... i'd have to analyze this a bit more to
figure out which word is most suitable] quite similar
to some of DWJ's darker work; i'm thinking in
particular of The Homeward Bounders. Jamie and Shadow
seem in some ways very alike to me, especially in some
of the larger themes [rather than the particulars of
their situations, necessarily].
