For week 23, I read Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys. I believe I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy Mr. Gaiman’s work, and I know I’m not the only one.
This is the second time I have read this book. I don’t know what I was doing the first time, or why I didn’t remember anything about it, but this time ’round it stuck. I wouldn’t call this Gaiman’s best book, but it’s very enjoyable. The background mythology is one I am unfamiliar with, so there must be a hundred little references I managed to miss, and those glancing cameos are one of my favorite elements in Gaiman’s work. Still, it took me very little time to devour the story. Heh, poor Fat Charlie.
