In this #1 New York Times bestseller, Neil Gaiman returns to the territory of his masterpiece, American Gods (soon to be a Starz Original Series) to once again probe the dark recesses of the soul.

God is dead. Meet the kids.

Fat Charlie Nancy’s normal life ended the moment his father dropped dead on a Florida karaoke stage. Charlie didn’t know his dad was a god. And he never knew he had a brother. Now brother Spider is on his doorstep—about to make Fat Charlie’s life more interesting . . . and a lot more dangerous.

“Thrilling, spooky, and wondrous.”

Denver Post

“Awesomely inventive.… When you take the free-fall plunge into a Neil Gaiman book, anything can happen and anything invariably does.”

Entertainment Weekly

“Delightful, funny and affecting.... A tall tale to end all tall tales.”

A very enjoyable tale
August's book group book.

I read and reviewed this book back in 2010 on my blog, although I "read" this as an audio book the first time.

This was just as enjoyable the second go around, Neil Gaiman's books are like that. Just enjoyable.

Premise of the book is Fat Charlie Nancy is just your average bloke, living in an average flat, working an average job at the Graham Coates Insurance Agency, and is engaged to the lovely Rosie. While planning the guest list for his forthcoming nuptials, Rosie makes him call his Father who lives in Florida. Fat Charlie is stunned to discover he died and the funeral is the next day. Everything begins in Florida.

Of course I'm over simplifying the plot. A mere paragraph would not do this book justice. It's a delightfully woven tale of the beginning, of Spider and Tiger, of stories and of revenge, written only like Neil can write.

Go read it.
