Anansi Boys Review
I had been looking forward to reading this since I finished American Gods but I try to limit the amount of new books I bring into my house in any one period. (not like it works) I did pick it up on a before the movies book shopping trip with the rug rats and I am ever so glad I did.
Mr. Nancy was my favourite of the peripheral characters in American Gods, there's something about the way he is portrayed that just draws you in. I was more than enthusiastic about getting to hear his story in a more in depth manner.
I didn't connect with Fat Charlie right at the beginning of the book, he was more of a slow hook character for me, it was as gradual as his development in the story. Once I did fall for him though, it was completely and I was sad for the book to end, it was like losing a friend.
