Great book to supplement American Gods. More stories, somewhat more straightforward, and overall a fun read.

Gaiman once again entertains with an unusual and fun tale. Great beach reading!

Not quite done with this novel but it's got some elements that will be familiar if you've read American Gods. It's a good read. It's surprising and funny at turns, so much so that you don't really want to put it down.

Excellent book, read it. While you're at it, read American Gods and the Ocean at the End of the Lane, too. And absolutely, without doubt, read Neverwhere.

If you want to know how stories travel, you should read this book. With these stories, I'm happy to have a special connection. Over thirty years ago, I was a child in what used to be Soviet Union. My parents were about to get divorced, and my father was leaving behind things he didn't need-one of them being a book, translated into Russian, Tales of Uncle Remus, Adventures of Brer Fox and Brer Rabbit. My mother read it to me. Many years from then, me and my Southern husband, after living together for years, were surprised to find out that as children in different parts of the world, we were read the same stories by our mothers. :-)))

And apparently, these stories were Anansi's.

Fun one. I would definitely recommend to Gaiman readers but not necessarily as a first one of his to read.

Not only a quite pleasant foray into the world of American Gods, but a fascinating story in its own right!

Anansi boys was the second Novel by Neil Gaiman I've read. I love how he weaves what we accept as humanity and the ethereal into stories both surprising and assuring. On to the third!

This is a terrific read -- light-hearted, fanciful, entertaining, and deeply felt. The first couple of chapters were slowish, but the pace picked up after that and it never let up until the end. For fans of Gaiman or fantastical fiction, highly recommended.

Found it hard to get into. Feels too much like American Gods. I think it has some neat ideas just not my thing. If you like Gaiman and American Gods I guess you will like this.

I know that many would consider it blasphemy but...this seemed more of a plan for a book than an actual finished novel. Oh well...can't win them all.
