Charlie's development and maturity
Just a fun read but nowhere as good as the full cast and in depth story of American gods
The amazing accents and attitudes
I loved the critically-acclaimed American Gods, but I think I enjoyed Anansi Boys better, and it is Lenny Henry's performance that makes the difference. George Guidall and Simon Prebble are my favourite narrators, but the producers made the right choice getting Lenny for this project. He is the curry to the delicious goat of this story.
Fun, whimsical, fable
It made me think of Terry Pratchett books although it is closer to reality. The characters are fantastical but the plot and relationships are easy to relate to the real world.
The accents! He is marvelous and really gives the feeling of the characters. I particularly enjoyed how he portrayed the old ladies.
Sometimes you need a brother to be complete.
I thought this story was light humor and fun. easy listen and sounded just fine, even though i don't like a man reading a woman's part. Sounds a little creepy.
This is the audiobook medium at its very best. Lenny Henry narrates with lively enthusiasm and a brilliant gift for the many voices of the story. A tropical music soundtrack adds atmosphere to Neil Gaiman's witty, poetic retelling of the legend of Anansi and his children.
Read this book a while ago but decided to listen to it on Audio. Brilliant. It is wonderful to hear Fat Charlie and Spider and the rest of the characters come to life with such flare! Can't recommend it enough! Love Neil Gaiman's work and Lenny Henry brought a special gift to the reading of the book.
Yes. It was interesting to learn how all the characters intertwined and try to guess what would happen next. The surprises were delightful.
While I did not care for the character of Rosie's mother, I thought she was artfully developed.I liked Maeve Livingston. She turned out to be quite different from the initial impression painted by Graham Coates as a clingy demanding woman.
Yes. Just as good.
I truly enjoyed the ending with tiger and Graham Coates getting what they deserved in a just but unexpected manner!
The narrator, Lenny Henry, captures each character's essence and vulnerability. He is magic to listen to. A Gaiman story is always a magical and terrifying experience, but Henry's narration brings it home.
This was one of the best stories that I have listened to thus far by Mr. Gaiman. I loved the enthusiasm, and the characters were so much fun that I hated to see the story come to an end. I don't generally listen to books more than once but this is one that I can see myself listening to over again. It is laugh out loud good humor in parts and so captivating that there is no putting this one down. Outstanding! Simply outstanding!
