it was amazing
bookshelves: 7up, 2009, favorites, fantastical
Read in July, 2009 , read count: 2

First read impressions: SO GREAT. So creepy. So weird. Random in the best way, and the way that nightmares truly are. The sort of stuff you couldn't write if you were trying, which is why I believe it must come very effortlessly to Neil Gaiman, or at least it reads that way. Reminded me of Through the Looking Glass, but scarier... and Through the Looking Glass is plenty frightening.

Second read: Still loved it, but it was really hard not to picture the movie. C'est la vie, right?
