One of my first books from thriftbook.. it ended up being a hardback large print. Also, probably the blackest cover I have.

Great story but always feels a bit rushed at the end. Too much happening too quickly, everyone conveniently converging without reasonable explanation. Can't remember how many times I've read it though.

I love Neil Gaiman‘s brain. It never fails to provide us a twisted yet beautifully written tale. Anansi Boys is an interesting & modern spin on the African/Caribbean Spider deity Anansi, or moreover the lives of the offspring he‘s left behind. At times it is practically a coming of age story, at others the story of Cain and Abel but above all it is just downright good. Magic, mythology, mischief and murder - this story has something for everyone.

I absolutely cannot stand this cover, but the book itself was a humorous and enjoyable read about family, mythology and gods being tricksters. I‘m not usually a fan of urban fantasy/magical realism, but Gaiman does it well!

#2 (2019) I love Gaimen, and have no idea why it took me so long to get around to reading this. Probably as Anansi never grabbed me in American Gods. It‘s not my favourite book of his, but I really enjoyed this. It‘s a gentler modern fairytale than others, that creates a fascinating dreamlike atmosphere throughout. 7/10 #ebbooks2019

There is something fairytaleish in the way Gaiman writes. He has unique atmosphere in his stories. The idea of spider god Anansi as a character was really interesting. I liked this one! 😊🕷🕸

@LauraJ has recommended so many fantastic books for the #newyearwhodis readathon, and I can‘t wait to jump in! I own Anansi Boys, I‘m going to place Interlibrary Loan requests for The Wasp Factory and Swan Song, and the rest I am able to get from my library! There are three books from her list that are not pictured because I can‘t get them through my library, but I‘ve added them to my TBR for later!

Thanks for hosting @monalyisha 😊📚

Day 5 #tarottakeover immediately brought to mind several Neil Gaiman books. But I picked "Fat" Charlie and Anansi Boys. Charlie had a very hard time accepting that his dad was indeed the African trickster god, Anasi. Eventually he does and he let's go of the tightly maintained control of his life, sacrificing his ordinary life for a bit of chaos and magic.

If you've never read this book, you absolutely need to!

GingerAntics Sure, I just bought this for $7.99 on Thursday morning. lol 14mo
mcipher It‘s really good. I *loved* the audio. The voices and accents really made it come alive. 14mo
JenlovesJT47 @GingerAntics I hate when that happens! ☹️ @mcipher I love NG audiobooks, did he narrate this one himself? He has the sexiest voice! 😬 13mo
mcipher Nope! Someone else narrates it. I have to find one that he does himself, though, I hear he‘s great. 13mo
JenlovesJT47 @mcipher Even though I haven‘t finished it yet (life gets in the way and I want to start it from the beginning), I would highly recommend Neverwhere narrated by NG. Sometimes I listen to audiobooks while I‘m laying in bed and I fall asleep, but when I started that I was wide awake for 3 hours listening to his amazing voice. It‘s also an interesting story so that helps. Love NG! 13mo

Amazon.de just sent me info on "Neil Gaiman's latest book". Before opening the email I was wondering whether I had missed anything about Gaiman publishing something new and hence was disappointed upon finding out that it's "just" Anansi Boys in German.

#LitsyAufDeutsch #German

Amazon.de-people, don't do that. Don't get my hopes up and crush them with a translation of a book that's been on the market for years.

Moray_Reads I feel like that when I get emails from Audible about things like "the new Charles Dickens book". Hmm, unlikely ? 14mo
julesG @Moray_Reads 😂😂😂 Who knows?! Maybe Dickens and Poe get to co-author one of these days. 14mo

I really, really enjoyed this book. I think the narrator had a lot to do with it. Poor Fat Charlie‘s relationship with his brother Spider was problematic at times, but humorous. Part fable and part myth, this will be an audiobook I will revisit again. So, so good!

A great stand alone story (in the American Gods world). The humor and dialogue are on point. It opens up alot of the possibilities of what the gods can and can't do. The main characters mundane life crumbling is a fun yet tragic journey.
How it explores ones legacy and how that is carried on is realistic.
Its worth your time as a fun read. Don't come into this looking for a American Gods sequel. 7.5/10

I used to read a 400+ page book in a day, but now it takes me a week. It doesn't mean the book isn't good, or that I'm not invested, it just means that I'm not reading as fast.

And that's OK. This is such a fantastical and fascinating read so far. I'm loving it!
