Excellent book. Read it a couple of years back. Any climate change deniers here should read it and see what sort of nutjobs they are aligning themselves with.

As far as I know that's set in the same world as, but not a direct sequel to American Gods (which I enjoyed), is that right?

Surprised to find out it was written in the 50's always thought Vonnegut started writing later.

Wikipedia says his first novel was published in 1952.

An excellent, excellent read. I'd love to do a 2 or 3 day tour of the areas in and around Berlin - that'd be fascinating.

I'd call it more of a spin-off story: It's actually mostly about the sons of Anansi (naturally), with daddy being a somewhat peripheral figure, so far.

It's pretty good, so far. I've put off reading it for a long time under the fear it was going to be more of a young adult-type of book, which it isn't at all. However, I would say it's not as dark as AG, although i haven't finished it yet, so I'll reserve judgement.

Sound. It's been a while since I read A.G. so I'd probably need to reread that first.

You don't need to: The story so far has had absolutely nothing to do with AG. The only thing they share is the character of Anansi (Mr Nancy). I'd say it's a standalone novel [again, so far].

Exactly what you'd expect. I really should have gone for the audiobook.

If he read it himself, that demands to be listened to!

He does! He even says in the introduction to imagine hearing it in his voice, and it's impossible not to TBH. Good read, actually, though best taken with a handful of salt.

Does anyone have some tips to read book quite efficiently? I've started reading The Odyssey two days ago but I keep forgetting what I've read. I thought of looking for an audio book online so I can read it and listen to it at the same time.

Yes, and it's significantly weaker, but still an entertaining read.

I'm currently reading the Saga series by Brian Vaughan and Fiona Apples, great comics set in a scifi/fantasy universe in which... I kind of struggle to describe it, not because it's so complex (so far) but rather cause the description sounds so much more trite than it reads and the world feels. Definitely recommended!
