Fat Charlie & Spider: Anansi Boys (by Neil Gaiman)

Although Anansi Boys isn’t quite the epic masterpiece that American Gods was, Fat Charlie and Spider are two great characters that manage to make the novel worthwhile. They’re two completely different people, but their dealing with their father’s death together and Charlie learning that his dad was a god make for some darn good reading.
