it was amazing
Read in August, 2010

I always pick this book up and read a story when I feel like I'm going to crumble. Not that it necessarily picks me up or makes me feel much better. But it's as if within 'Smokes and Mirrors' Neil Gaiman has created pockets, sewn in little flaps between the wor(l)ds of these stories. Here one can just curl up and feel something familiar and close. It's very much like that feeling in your childhood when you hear a bedtime story you've heard over and over again and you know it's the one that makes you warm inside and helps you fall asleep. It's quite a wonderful experience.

Nessa Starfish That review is perfect. It sums up and mirrors my feelings about this collection of stories beautifully... and it's no wonder I carry it with me everywhere.
