I had a good time reading this book, this is one of Gaiman's good ones.
The way Gaiman brings you into the story is very well achieved, he starts pulling you in with Fat Charlie and then slowly shows you the web that this story really becomes.
I felt the plot was good but not all the characters were as detailed as they could be. The action really moves along and several surprises come up with each new chapter.
Fat Charlie, Spider and Anansi are one dysfunctional family that I enjoyed reading about.
I also enjoyed the way Gaiman woved the West African folk tales of Anansi with the main story, I felt that it becomes a richer novel for that.
It's not a heavy going book like American Gods but it's a pleasant reading anyway, although lighter mainly because of the comedy parts in this one.
I'll pass it to conto who has it on her wishlist.

I'm so sorry... I'm becoming sloppier with every book I read!
I have this book with me for several months now and I was sure I had made the JE saying so. Only I didn’t.

I was coming here to make the final JE, therefore I’ll make both: It’s with me but for a short while, I’ll be returning it to kizmiaz soon and I didn’t like it that much.

To be honest, I almost dropped it. I had decided to do so, but then decided to keep reading along with other books and ended up by reading it all. Once I started reading it that way I started enjoying it much more. Weird, hey?! (must be some kind of Anansi’s magic)

This has a bit too much fantasy for my taste and that’s what I didn’t like. Midway, I got caught in the web, I guess. Still, I wouldn’t say this is my kind of book, although it’s clear that Neil Gaiman does have a way with building characters and weird contexts and a great writer!

Thanks a lot Kizmiaz!

I just love the fanstaty worlds Neil Gaiman creates and can't believe I found this book while running in the park.
It's my first taste of bookcrossing, wish me luck!
