did not like it
bookshelves: 2010, books-i-didn-t-bother-to-finish

Just couldn't get into this. Gaiman wrote it for his daughter and you can tell, as it has the sense of a dad telling his daughter a serial bedtime story -- meandering, making things up as he goes, probably some parts that have special significance between father and daughter that don't really compute with the rest of the world. Didn't end up finishing it - moved on to more interesting stories.
