Anansi Boys – Neil Gaiman

When Fat Charlie's dad named something, it stuck.  Like calling Fat Charlie,"Fat Charlie."  Even now, twenty years later, Charles Nancy can't shake that name, one of many embarrassing "gifts" his father bestowed — before he dropped dead on a karaoke stage and ruined Fat Charlie's life.
Mr. Nancy left Fat Charlie  things.  Things like a tall, good-looking stranger who appears on Charlie's doorstep, who appears to be  the brother he never knew.  A brother as different from  Charlie as night is from day, a brother who's going to show Charlie how to lighten up adn have a little fun… just like Dear Old Dad.   And all of a sudden, life starts getting very interesting for Fat Charlie.
Because, you see, Charlie's dad wasn't just any dad.  He was Anansi, a trickster go, the spider god.  Anansi is the spirit of rebellion, able to overturn the social order, create wealth out of thin air, and baffle the devil. Some say he could cheat even Death himself.

  1. [this is awsome]This is an excellent follow up to Gaiman's "American Gods" and is an amazing read?Though next time why don't you create your own synopsis, instead of just copying the blurb of the dust cover?
