  • I laughed out loud While reading In a Japanese rice bowl joint Okay, so maybe it was of a chortle, but it was definitely out loud And than just the once Patrons quietly minding their own business while slogging through their Number Three Specials With Extra Tokyo Beef would be startled into wakefulness to see me chopsticks in one hand, book in the other as my grizzled maw broke forth with guffaws and irrepressible smiles.Really, Anansi Boys may be the first thing I ve read from Neil Gaiman tha [...]

  • I agree with many of the reviewers who praise this fun and inventive novel, but I am especially fascinated by how Gaiman represents race in Anansi Boys He chooses not to explicitly identify that his globe trotting main characters are black until at least p 32 if I m mistaken, somebody please let me know and only then as a point of fact that is secondary to their status as gods It is true that anyone who has read American Gods or heard traditional African folktales will have met Anansi before, bu [...]

  • I ve come to recognize that one of the main reasons I enjoyed this book so much was that I listened to the audiobook, performed by comedian Lenny Henry, whose background as a Brit of Caribbean descent made him the perfect choice to bring the characters to life A lot of audiobooks aren t very good, but this one way great, and really brings out the fact that Anansi stories are meant to be heard.It s recognizable Gaiman stuff, with the fish out of water narrator in a modern fantasy world, with the [...]

  • One of the few Gaiman books that I only gush mildly about, as opposed to gushing enthusiastically It s a solid book, and it does all the things that makes Gaiman s books great It s got humor, myth, gravitas, cleverness But it simply didn t impress me as much as Neverwhere, Stardust, American Gods, or Coriline I m willing to admit that the only reason I don t rank this book as 5 stars is because I m comparing it to his other books, which are profound and perfect That s probably unfair of me, but [...]

  • Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman blends the best attributes of Gaiman s extraordinary talent excellent writing, original storytelling, mythic elements, and confidence A central theme in the narrative is about confidence and that is also how Gaiman tells the tale, his writing exudes confidence, he writes with a virtuoso s swagger Not really taking off where American Gods left off, but neither does it depart from Gaiman s myth and legends foundations, Anansi Boys sings the song of Fat Charlie, Mr Nancy [...]

  • Fat Charlie his dad gave him the nickname it s a sore spot spent his entire life absolutely mortified by his dad.Of course, everyone s parents are embarrassing It goes with the territory The nature of parents is to embarrass merely by existing, just as it is the nature of children of a certain age to cringe with embarrassmentThen his dad does the unthinkable he had the nerve to die Now Fat Charlie has to go back to America for the first time in years and midway through the funeral he discovers s [...]

  • A Digression and a Review When I was a child who was much too prone to being serious for her own good, there was a catalpa tree in our backyard Now, if you don t know what a catalpa tree is, it s worth a Google Catalpas are beautiful and exotic, with giant leaves we used as plates to have fairy like meals of mulberry and honeysuckle with mimosa blossoms as a bit of garnish , giant bean pods that hung down like sylvan fingers ready to ensnare an unsuspecting child, white orchid like flowers that [...]

  • Previously listed this book as Anansi Boys American Gods 2 , this has since been fixed by Raven the ace GR librarian Anyway, Anansi Boys is not American Gods 2, the character Anansi does, however, appears inAmerican Gods as Mr Nancy so the two books are related but there is no need to read one to follow the other.Anansi Boys is about Anansi s two sons, the absence of an apostrophe S after Anansi s name notwithstanding The first one we are introduced to is Charles Nancy, usually called Fat Charli [...]

  • Well, this book was FUN, GREAT and WEIRD Gaiman uses weird to bring out the humour in his writing with great effect.The weird Back in yesteryear Tiger yes, the animal owned all of the stories, jokes and the moon and stars Through trickery Spider AKA Mr Anansi stole ownership, therefore, becoming the sole being allowed to spread and enhance said stories and jokes.The story is of Fat Charlie Anansi, the man whose Father acquired the stories He lives a mundane life in London with a girlfriend who i [...]

  • Anansi Boys is like a rollercoaster without the loops, very few twists and one that keeps the speed to a minimum You strap yourself in, ready for excitement that never materializes My god, I ve never felt luke warm towards a book in my life The mildly interesting story is of a somewhat relatable modern day slacker coming to grips with his father s and brother s overwhelming personalities as well as a fantasy world he didn t know existed I m tired of stories with modern day slackers bringing the [...]

  • I kept intending to write a proper review recommendation of ANANSI BOYS, which I read while I was in Australia, but for some reason, every time I sat down to write it, all that came out were words in one syllables, which makes for a lousy book review Sample copy of my early blog posts about ANANSI BOYS This book is good.This book is fast.This book is fun.This book is what it says it is.Which is fun.This book is a good, fast, fun read.I m just not sure it s going to get any better than that I lik [...]

  • ANANSI BOYS hereinafter AB is the archetype tale of the hero s quest but in place of the typical warrior hero is a fool, and, oh, it happens to take place in our days and there is the wonder of something magical yet not totally seen.Our fool of a hero is Fat Charlie He used to be chubby as a kid but now he s in good enough shape yet everyone remembers him as Fat Charlie so the name sticks, much to his chagrin, and, it s all the fault of his father.Wait, did I tell you his father is a trickster A [...]

  • I love Neil Gaiman s Sandman so much that I am desperate to love the rest of his work, but I can t do much than like it because it s mostly only okay.He deals with all the stuff I love mythology, the occult, death, dreams, the urban fantastic but he s too tongue in cheek When I read one of his novels, I feel like I m reading the Nick Hornby of fantasy Too clever, too hip and too cool for his own good.It s not that I don t like his prose work I do And I even love some of it like Wolves in the Wa [...]

  • A delight and the first of Gaiman s books to get the full from me It s got that outrageous Freaky Friday Prince and the Pauper narrative Britishisms a la Evelyn Waugh and a peck of Douglas Adams s brand of whimsy this is infinitely better than Hitchhiker s Guide, much better than the author s own Stardust AND Neverwhere It s adorably Beetlejuician What s not to like, huh

  • It s remarkable, really, how long I was permitted to exist without reading Neil Gaiman In retrospect, I suppose it s a good thing that I didn t read any of his books until college had I been exposed to his work in high school, the result would have been a near obsession filled with pages of awful fanfiction and an emotional meltdown when I learned that Mr Gaiman is happily married But this didn t happen, thankfully My first Neil Gaiman book was American Gods, and when my roommate a much dedicat [...]

  • The important thing about songs is that they re just like stories They don t mean a damn unless there s people listenin to them Neil Gaiman, Anansi BoysI spent the evening avoiding my nightly duties to my family while slowly pruning in the tub while reading this Time to transfer back into my normal wrinkles and be a grown up The book was good Not great But it was playful I can see how many of my friends would love it Stop Many of my friends DO love it It is a song and dance about family, brother [...]

  • 4.0 to 4.5 stars Another superb story by one of my favorite authors While not a sequel to his superb American Gods, it shares the title character with that book along with some references to his adventures in that story While those references add to the richness of the tale, there is no necessity of reading American God first except for the obvious one that it is one of the best books ever Anyway, this story center around Charles Fat Charlie Nancy, a timid, passive man from London whose life is [...]

  • Mr Gaiman has the same problem as Terry Pratchet He can present the material, but he can t make me care It s not a good sign when you re halfway through a book and you realize that if you put down the book and walked away right then and there, and never found out how the book ended, you wouldn t care I don t care whether things work out between him and Rosie I don t care if his dad is still alive or not I don t care if he and his brother ever make up I wouldn t care if the author ended the book [...]

  • My brain is mush and is refusing to cooperate with this review I have tried writing from my angry ocean, my sarcastic sea and my happy puddle only to discover that the water is either frozen over, shallow or all dried up I do have a waterfall of sorrow I could tap into but once I go over it there isn t any coming back for a bit and I am not up for the useless back paddling.I liked the book but I did not like it as much as I did American Gods Technically, it s not fair to compare the two since th [...]

  • 2.5 starsI should have known better than to try another book by Gaiman after too many disappointments from him in the past But I ve read just enough good work by him to keep me coming back, hoping to strike gold again Unfortunately, all I found here was fool s gold Maybe that sounds harsh, considering the story was very imaginative, rich in details stemming from a myth originating in an African folktale But here s why I think this book glitters only on the surface The character from the above fo [...]

  • This was my first experience with Gaiman and it was a perfect way for me to recover from a string of books that I did not like at all It was a witty urban fantasy and the audiobook had excellent narration by Lenny Henry Fat Charlie discovers upon the death of his estranged father that his father was the god Anansi and that Fat Charlie has a brother named Spider who can be summoned by giving a message to any spider he encounters Unfortunately, Fat Charlie sends this message and the arrival of Spi [...]

  • Well, that was completely different.The start of this was a little rough going for me I had a hard time not wanting to shake Fat Charlie Nancy He s the kind of guy that s a doormat for about everyone else in his life, and it s a little disheartening I m a buck up and cheerleader type, also a slug the A holes in the face type, though apparently one look is usually enough for someone to reconsider their commitment to a situation Something about the I don t care if I don t win as long as you lose a [...]

  • This was a fun read.I m not sure where I got the idea, but I was under the impression that this was a series with American Gods The only connection is that Anansi makes an appearance in American Gods, but the books have nothing to do with each other And on that note, I will admit that I was a little apprehensive about this one because American Gods was just so so for me Well, Anansi Boys made up for it because this was a thoroughly enjoyable read.With a Father who wears yellow gloves, a green fe [...]

  • Iaako se vodi kao nastavak Ameri kih bogova ova knjiga je sve osim toga S Bogovima dijeli jednog sporednog lika Anasija i svjet u kojem se odvija radnja Negdi sam pro itao da je Gaiman Anasijeve de ke po eo pisati prine Ameri kih Bogova ali da je njih prije dovr io To se apsolutno vidi u stilu kojim su te knjige pisane Dok su Bogovi mra niji i vi e podsje aju na mitove Anasijevi de ki su, poput prija njih Gaimanovih djela, bajka Lijepo osmi ljena i ispri ana bajka koja te dr i priljepljenog za k [...]

  • U svakom zivotu , zapoceo je, mora pasti pokoja kap kise Casa meda iste casu zuci Gdje ima smijeha, pridometnuo je Spider, bude i placa D Ma svi razgovori Grahama i Spidera u poslovicama su uzivancijaZa razliku od podosta ozbiljnih Bogova iako su ona slavenska bozanstva isto za umrijet od smijeha , Decki su bas u sasavom tonu s naivnim zapletom koji zapravo i nije u fokusu Vise do izrazaja mi dolazi taj prekrasni stil, to me okupira da ne stignem misliti na nista drugo Gaiman me inace zna raznje [...]

  • Fat Charlie s father dies while singing karioke Soon afterward, Charlie meets Spider, his previously unknown brother Spider proceeds to wreck Charlie s life in humorous ways Did I mention Charlie s dad was Anansi, the spider god You d think I would have mentioned that first.My interest in Neil Gaiman led me to discover Wodehouse and this book really show s Wodehouse s influence on Gaiman Fat Charlie and Spider s relationship is straight out of a Wodehouse book It s not hard to imagine Fat Charli [...]

  • I was left a teensy bit disappointed by this book if I m being completely honest Now don t get me wrong, I did enjoy it and really loved about 90% of the story but I just felt it wasn t as great as American Gods or any of the other books I ve read by Gaiman It was missing that little extra 10% to make it truly magical and make me fall completely in love I was also surprised upon starting this book that it didn t have to do with American Gods You see, I didn t read the back of Anansi Boys or any [...]

  • To be quite honest with you, I didn t particularly like the first third of this book It s got nothing to do with the way it s written Neil Gaiman is as funny and imaginative as ever , it was something else The things is, I m a sucker for sibling relationships and I was pleasantly surprised to find one in this book But Spider and Fat Charlie spend the first half of this book arguing and generally making each others lives hell and it just made me uncomfortable There were other things too, like Cha [...]
