Publisher's Summary

A brand-new BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Neil Gaiman's best-selling and much-loved novel.
When his father dies, Fat Charlie Nancy discovers that not only was the late Mr Nancy actually the god Anansi, but he also has a long-lost brother, Spider, who is everything Fat Charlie is not. When Spider begins to take over Fat Charlie's life, his flat and even his fiancée, Rosie, Fat Charlie is forced to make a pact that lands him in trouble with the gods themselves....
Anansi Boys is a story of love, laughter, music and murder, old gods and new tricks that takes Fat Charlie from his home in South London to Florida, the Caribbean, and the very Beginning of the World itself. Or the End of the World. Depending on which direction you're coming from.
Jacob Anderson stars as Charlie, and he has written and performed a specially commissioned song - 'Charlie's Song' - which forms part of the magical fabric of Anansi Boys.
Dramatised for Radio 4 by the award-winning Dirk Maggs (Neverwhere, Good Omens, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), the stellar cast of this series also includes Joseph Marcell, Lenny Henry, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Angela Wynter, Josiah Choto, Adjoa Andoh, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Ariyon Bakare, Earl Cameron, Ronke Adekoluejo, Sheila Atim and Pippa Bennett-Warner, as well as a cameo appearance from Neil Gaiman himself.

slow to start but well worth it

The characters are very well cast and it's a solid adaptation of the novel. The first couple of episodes are a bit turgid, but Bird is *terrifying* and it comes to a satisfying conclusion. I particularly liked the voices for Rose, Daisy, and Mrs Noah.

Click the 'buy' button.

Fabulous. If you have previously enjoyed a Neil Gaiman story which combined myth + reality click that 'buy' button.

Cast, story and sound design are all spot on. Already listened to this twice and would recommend doing this as you'll pick up elements of the story you may have missed during the first listen.

[5 x 27 minutes episodes] + [1 x 57 minute episode]

And if you enjoy this take a look at other Neil Gaiman stories dramatised by the BBC: Good Omens, Neverwhere, How the Marquis Got His Coat Back, and Stardust.
