Club Consensus - Gaiman's American Gods

As someone who tends to be turned off by distinctive fantasy and hard science fiction, would Gaiman's novels, particularly [I]American Gods[/I], fail to garner my interest?
Would you consider American Gods to be decidedly mythical or does it maintain a sense of realism [B]and[/B] fantasy?
I just don't want to be disappointed after starting it only to find that characters and scenes are in the vein of pure fantasy (goblins, mythical power struggles, weirdly names lands, people; special objects and tomes that hold ultimate power, etc).
