God is dead. Meet the kids.

Fat Charlie Nancy’s normal life ended the moment his father dropped dead on a Florida karaoke stage. Charlie didn’t know his dad was a god. And he never knew he had a brother. Now brother Spider is on his doorstep—about to make Fat Charlie’s life more interesting . . . and a lot more dangerous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from imaginative and moving I was quite unsure about this book at some points. I wasn't sure what was happening and where things were going. For the first half of the book I was just really hating Spider. You really need to let it unravel before you get the big picture. In the end, I can't deny that this is a Neil Gaiman novel. Which means its imaginative and moving, and everything comes together in the end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed it Loved the characters. I find that Gaiman has a way of building characters that aren't one-dimensional and I enjoy that there is depth and development of all the people he builds in his books. It's also quite easy to read - I got through it without any issues. I also found that the plot carried on at the right place; it never felt rushed or too dragged out. I really enjoyed it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok Was expecting a little more especially after Americain Gods. The story is original but long and more predictible then the first. Still worth the read but you might want to put it down every once in an a while and pick it back up
