Anansi Boys - Neil Gaiman Every book I read from Gaiman just makes me want to read more. It's going to be a sad day when I have caught up and have to wait for his next release. ANANSI BOYS was a lighter, more fun read than even some of his children's stories, and I thought that it was a great retelling of some old folktales. Gaiman's take on familial relations and siblings and love were fun and imaginative and kept me reading. To be honest, after AMERICAN GODS, I put off reading this, as Anansi was in that too, and I didn't want to mar my experience with that book. This was a stand-alone though, and it wouldn't have mattered if I had read the other or not. I needed something fun and light and not too deep to keep my spirits up this week and this did the trick. Well done, Neil, well done.
