A wonderful sequel to American Gods that did not live up to the brilliance of its predecessor.

Definitely in the same universe as American Gods, but a bit more light and funny to read. This being a Neil Gaiman book, there are still dark parts to go along with the levity.

I loved the folklore and familial aspects of the story. Stories and songs have carried the histories and myths of humans since the beginning - and I like how he weaves that tradition into his story and illustrates it within the family. I love to hear those re-telling of tales passed on and on...keep it going...

This was a pleasant and amusing read. I may have rated it higher if I hadn’t previously read Gaiman’s American Gods, in which I was delighted by Gaiman’s blend of myth, magic and reality. I was somehow hoping for more of the same from Anansi Boys, but I think it falls short of his previous work.

A very good read from the talented Neil Gaiman. If you enjoyed American Gods, you'll definitely find this book a treat since it's about Mr. Nancy's sons and their adventures.

One of the most memorable characters from American Gods comes back for another cameo. If you liked American Gods then you HAVE to read this one. Reading it, I was reminded of the Disney movie :Song of the South" and the tales of Brer Rabbit, Fox and Bear
