Spoiler-Free Book Review: Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
The premise: “Fat Charlie” Nancy is living a decidedly unmagical life in England. But when he travels to Florida to attend his father’s funeral, he learns that his late father was the trickster god Anansi. From there, Fat Charlie is drawn into a web (heh) of alternate realities, estranged brothers, mythical animals, sleight-of-hand, séances, family folklore, and a big, sinister helping of trouble.
