I saw this in Barnes & Noble; the title intrigued me and it had a recommendation from Neil Gaiman. Nuff said. Got it from the library, and tested it out on Ross. He was not effusive with his praise but he did stick with it. I figured it was worth a go.

Odd book. Written very simply; the prose could easily be for a young adult or children's novel, were it not for the frequent swearing, prodigious drinking and much reference to sex (both human and fairie). I can't recommend it. I didn't hate it, but the whole thing just didn't work for me. Cute ideas, fun, but in the end so meaningless and fluffy that I just don't care.
