Hah, Zorya is great too.  Cloris Leachman.  "You want from me, my sisters are garbage."

The book never gave us that much Laura backstory, so I liked it.  I guess it wasn't wholly necessary though (dissatisfied and messed up woman blah blah blah).

I think Audrey is my favorite non-godlike character.

She's fun but I'm done with that part and iirc the book was done with that part of the story at this point too.  Laura shows up a couple more times, but mostly happens off screen.  I guess the show is going to have more of her though.

Audrey had the best reaction to seeing a person come back from the dead I've ever seen.  Pure terror.

That was the best part.  The fight was just badly shot.

I never read the book myself but I started listening to this audio-book of it today.
The voice casting is pretty damn good. Sounds exactly like TV Mr. Wednesday.
Lots of similarities to the series and some differences as well. Pretty cool.

Just in case anyone else wanted to check it out...

Each episode of this series gets better every time.
Meeting Mr. World and his new gods was pretty epic.







Mad Sweeney meeting Laura was pretty great as well.
She ain't giving up that coin anytime soon.



And where the hell is Audrey?
We never saw her again since those 2 death gods grabbed Laura on the highway.

Another change from the book is we didn't get any of this stuff with Mad Sweeney's adventures.  We got the meeting and fight with Shadow, the meeting with Shadow where he's down on his luck clearly and wanting the coin, and then Spoiler
He's dead and being buried.

None of the impaled people, no fight with Laura, no police.

Here's some more background

Mad Sweeny and Laura combo should improve greatly on the book

Doesn't last much longer though, unless they let him live.

Man, I haven't read the book in a while though.  I think some other stuff happened but I can't remember it well.
