"Everybody going to be dead one day, just give them time" 'Anansi Boys' by Neil Gaiman.

“Everybody going to be dead one day, just give them time” Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman

One week I will sit down and read all of the Gaiman books I can get my hands. Just delving into the next once I finished the first. So on and so on. Anansi Boys is one of them in question. I love the set up for the book. “Fat Charlie” Nancy, a shy retiring Englishman, breaks out of his wedding preparations when he finds out his polar opposite father has died. Died whilst singing karaoke to a much younger lady in Florida. The romp reveals things about his father, including his other brother.

A fantastic kind of follow up to American Gods.

I just find it a funny way of looking at patience. It will happen eventually. Even death.

Like waiting for an Amazon parcel to arrive. It’ll happen. Eventually. Hopefully.
