Book: Anasi Boys
Author: Neil Gaiman
This is my 22nd read for the year
This is the story of Fat Charlie. This father has died, and he was just told he has a brother named Spider that he never knew about. When Spider appears, he turns Charlie's life upside down. Spider - who has the powers of Fat Charlie's dad (who was a god and Charlie never knew) makes a mess of Charlie's personal and work life before Charlie has a chance to stop him. Needing help - Charlie enlist the help of the women who told him about Spider in the first place. However - this plan backfires leading to Charlie and Spider having to work together to solve an even bigger problem.
This was a pretty good book. This is the 2nd in the American God's series which I read a long time ago. Neil Gaiman is a fantastic author and I always enjoy his books. This one did not disappoint. It is well written with an engaging story. Is it my favorite of his books? Not at all - I would say it is one of his weaker novels. But still well written and kept me entertained. I am glad I read it.
