Anansi Boys

Being summer and all, I decided I would have a fun read with this book by Neil Gaiman. I was told that it was a story in the same style as American Gods which I enjoyed, and I would recommend this story if you liked that one. For those not in the know, imagine a contemporary setting where supernatural entities and regular people come into contact on a frequent basis. Then, add a little ego, humor, everyday drama, and larger-than-life adventure, and you’ve got yourself a story. A few days after finishing the story, I was walking down the street, and heard a collection of children chanting, ‘Spider!’ loudly, and I smiled a little bit to myself about the song they were all sharing.
