This follow-up (NOT sequel) to Gaiman's "American Gods" follows the adventure of Fat Charlie Anansi, the son of an African spider god, and his journey to discover himself while dealing with his mischevious twin brother. This is a fun, funny, touching book, different from the novel that inspired it, yet just as magical and fun as any of Gainman's works. British actor and comedian Lenny Henry does a great job narrating this tale with the right amount of humourous befudlement and sincere honesty.
If you enjoy modern fantasy, or are just looking for a good story read well then I strongly encourage you to give this wonderful tale a try. Neil Gaiman is one of the best authors alive today and you deserve to experience a glimpse into his head! Don't forget to download Gaiman's introduction to this book as well, also available through Audible.
All of these tales set in the Star Wars universe follow the same format. They share the familiar sound effects, and the classic John Williams music. Yet these classic elements are not near enough to make up for the lack of story. This book is sold as Darth Vadar's journey after Episode III, yet Vadar is barely explored during the story, the narriative moving with a few Jedis on the run. At least the reader is decent. So unless you're a big fan of the Lucasverse save your bucks!
