Anansi Boys  - Neil Gaiman

Honestly, when I sat down this morning with my tea and cracked open my copy of Anansi Boys, I wasn't expecting to still be sitting here, five hours later, finishing up the book.


I guess that means I really liked it.


Unpopular opinion, perhaps, but I thought it was better than American Gods. It mixed all of the elements I expect from a Gaiman story - humour, darkness, the ridiculousness of humanity, etc - and condensed it somewhat more than Gods was, without losing anything in the telling. I definitely appreciated that.


Favourite character was the lime.
