As quite a few of you know, I’m a huge fan of audio books. If I’m not on my cell phone in my car (and we’re no longer supposed to be doing that, are we?) I’m usually listening to a podcast or an audio book. It’s like watching a movie while you drive, without the sticky floor and the lady with the tall hair sitting in front of you.
I’m just on the verge of finishing Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys, which is read by the British comedian Lenny Henry. It’s a fascinating, part fantasy, part horror, part parable, very funny, charming adventure about a very normal guy who discovers he’s the son of a god…and that he has a long-lost brother. The world Gaiman creates is a joy to inhabit. Which, I suppose, is why it was on the bestseller lists for so long.
I can’t tell you how much I’ve been enjoying it. I think I’m going to listen to it again with my family while we’re on vacation!
