Essay questions regarding American Gods help?

Hello,

I am taking a course on Mythology in Literature in college right now. I have 4 essay questions that are up for grabs on our upcoming exam and I am kinda lost on what I should write on...the teacher is very picky but he allows us to use our books and stuff...Anyone who has read the book Serenity would also be a great help here...

1. Identify 4 passages from American Gods that you think are wise or true and explain why.

2. Explain the role of belief in American Gods by giving examples of where it is discussed and demonstrated.

3. Shadow's life is a journey. Describe the physical and psychological obstacles he overcomes.

4. Compare and contrast the journey the crew in Serenity takes to the one Shadow takes.

Thanks for any input guys!

Honestly, if you've read the book it should be fairly easy to ramble on about any of these questions. While we do like to discuss the book, we generally don't appreciate doing other people's homework - which is what your post reads like to me. I could be wrong and if I am, I apologise.

No I don't want my homework done for me, I will be honest and say I didn't enjoy American Gods as much as I enjoyed Serenity. Serenity is much more fresh in my mind because of this.

I don't want anyone to write my essays, I more or less want some ideas from people who enjoyed and thoroughly understood the book of what I could write on, I obviously being responsible for the essay which is going to be 2-3 pages long.

Want some help? Get used to reading and comprehending things you don't particularly enjoy. Your comprehension and ability to answer these questions shouldn't be dependent on whether or not you "like" the material.

This thread is how old now? Can we stop responding to it. I'm done with the class. I passed the test with an A. I just wanted some perspectives and ideas from people who actually enjoyed the book.
