O Gentle Readers...

(or ruffian skimmers, whiche'er you prefer)

I set aside Merton's Seven Storey Mountain for a couple of days because (1) progress is slow, (2) I enjoy fiction more, and (3) I went to Windsor yesterday and felt I needed something more "magical." So, I'm currently ripping through Gaiman's Stardust.

As books are wont to do, this got me thinking about other Gaiman books and other fantasy books/authors in general (thoughts aided by an unplanned rendezvous with a used bookstore two nights ago).

Specifically, I want to know: thumbs up or down on Anansi Boys? I've heard a few mixed things and am curious to see if there's a final concensus. And what about Stephen Donaldson or his Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever: worth my while to read or not? I'd appreciate any feedback you have on these. Thanks!
