Anansi Boys

Couldn't put it down.  Literally stayed up till 6am reading this one.

Fantastic story by Neil Gaiman.  "Fat" Charlie's dad, who it turns out might have been Anansi, the spider/man/god from African myths, dies, leads to him meeting the brother he didn't know he had, and, well, things get interesting when the son of a god becomes an unwelcome houseguest.

Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.

I read this too and thoroughly enjoyed it.  It's a very nice companion piece to American Gods. -leeman
