If I remember correctly, he's also mentioned that he started writing Anansi Boys first but American Gods ended up being published first. Hope that helps.

Start your review of Anansi Boys American Gods, 2. Its story gets all wishy-washy at the end. View all 5 comments. Jun 28, Seth T. I laughed out loud. While reading. In a Japanese rice bowl joint. Okay, so maybe it was more of a chortle, but it was definitely out loud.
And more than just the once. Patrons quietly minding their own business while slogging through their Number Three Specials With Extra Tokyo Beef would be startled into wakefulness to see me - chopsticks in one hand, book in the other - as my grizzled maw broke forth with guffaws and irrepressible smiles.
Really, Anansi Boys may be the first thing I've read fro I laughed out loud. I never got into Sandman though I'm told I should have persevered.
I never finished American Gods though I'm told I should have persevered. I never finished despite guessing that I should have persevered. Still, not only did I like it but I loved it. Enough that I gave my copy to someone else to read and purchased a second copy for another friend. And I'm certain they'll want to do similar things with the book. Anansi Boys is at all times funny, adventurous, and charming.
And several other over-used adjectives. In fact, Anansi Boys may be the prototype from which overused adjectives should have come - before they were overused. I'm not sure that Anansi Boys is great literature and I'm not sure that it isn't. What I am certain of beyond any shadow of doubtfulness is that Anansi Boys may be the most fun I have ever had reading a novel. There may be others that I enjoyed more but my experience of this book was such that it pushed if even momentarily all other books from my mind.
Someone on the back suggests that the book will make you love and be grateful for spiders. Critics and the things they say, huh? Well, I don't love spiders, but dang was this book good. The end. Anyone thinking of reading Blue like Jazz or Against Christianity or something by Karl Barth should definitely read this first. It would be an all time tragedy to have wasted hours reading Donald Miller when there is something like Anansi Boys out there.
Plus, it's just as spiritual. View all 27 comments. Jul 01, Qiana Whitted rated it really liked it Shelves: sf-fantasy , metafiction. I agree with many of the reviewers who praise this fun and inventive novel, but I am especially fascinated by how Gaiman represents race in Anansi Boys.
He chooses not to explicitly identify that his globe-trotting main characters are black until at least p.

It is true that anyone who has read American Gods or heard traditional African folktales will have met Anansi before, but even here the story emphasizes the cultural distinctiveness of the Caribbean island where this Anansi lives without employing heavy racial signifiers.
This isn't the same as being "race-neutral" - whatever that means! At first I thought it was odd, then really interesting and a thoughtful way to put Anansi and his fellow gods on equal footing with other cultural myths and legends. Toni Morrison experiments with this in "Recitatif" and Paradise , but it is nice to see the technique employed in unexpected places.
The story is also influenced by Zora Neale Hurston's work, which is cool. While I still like American Gods better, this is a great read. It's also hilarious - see one of the quotes I saved below.

Someone should make a list of all the stories about trickster gods and I think that would make a great collection - maybe even a story about all the trickster gods, like a convention!
Loki, Coyote, Anansi, etc. Hey Neil! Very entertaining. View all 4 comments. Jun 29, Patrick rated it really liked it. One of the few Gaiman books that I only gush mildly about, as opposed to gushing enthusiastically.
It's a solid book, and it does all the things that makes Gaiman's books great. It's got humor, myth, gravitas, cleverness

Anansi Boys is a fantasy novel by English writer Neil Gaiman. In the novel, "Mr. Nancy" — an incarnation of the West African trickster god Anansi — dies, leaving two sons, who in turn discover each other. The novel follows their adventures as they explore their common heritage. Although it is not a sequel to Gaiman's previous novel American Gods , the character of Mr. Nancy appears in both books.
