really liked it
bookshelves: audio, fantasy, fiction, short-stories, suspense
Read in November, 2009

In the introduction, Neil Gaiman states that he's always enjoyed short stories, partly because if he didn't like one, he knew that something else would be along shortly. I find that phrase particularly fitting with this collection. I feel that some of the stories were brilliantly crafted, whereas other ones I could have done without. However, on the whole, I enjoyed this collection. And, as they are short stories, I find myself wanting to listen to my favorites again, like a beloved movie. I particularly enjoyed "The Case of the Four and Twenty Blackbirds," "How to Sell the Ponti Bridge," and "The Witch's Headstone."

Gaiman has a great imagination which crafts some truly unique and intriguing situations. As I started listening to this book in October, I also appreciated its Halloween-esque qualities.
