I loved this; in fact, it's now my favorite Neil Gaiman book. That's right, unlike everyone else in the universe, I like this one BETTER than American Gods. It doesn't have the same epic scope, but I thought everything about it was spot on. I laughed (out loud! while alone in my car) a lot, and I even got misty-eyed a few times toward the end. Also, the audio book is fantastic: Lenny Henry gives an amazing performance. Very, very satisfying.
