Overview

The concept that is used to tell these Anansi stories is very original. The author does not relate the usual Anansi stories but has instead, set them in such a way that entwines them with the lives of the Ashanti Africans from the slave trade to plantation life in Jamaica.
You see Anansi on the journey from the interior to the coast of Africa with the captured Africans. You experience his horror of the Middle Passage, the auction block and plantation life and its many intrigues.
Although Anansi stories as a rule cater mostly to small children, the author has a set of stories that now caters for a more mature and wider audience.
