    If his rotter of an estranged father hadn't gone and dropped dead at a karaoke night, Fat Charlie Nancy would still be blissfully unaware that his dad was Anansi the spider god. He would also have no idea that he has a brother (called Spider) who is also a god. And now this brother is trying to take over his life, and is generally doing a much better job of being him.

    What about Lenny Henry’s performance did you like?

    Lenny Henry is an inspired choice to narrate this novel. His vocal expressiveness is simply the best I have heard so far in an audiobook, the characters are clearly differentiated and he always gets the emphasis right. The only (very minor) criticism I have is that some silent gaps between segments are a little longer than they need to be - but that's better than no gaps at all which I have encountered in some other books.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the way Neil Gaiman mixes mythology with reality. To say any more would be to risk spoilers. I haven't quite finished listening but I'm really looking forward to hearing how it ends. I believe I can predict some of the outcome, but not how it will be achieved.
