Amber I thought this was a pretty good read. Neil Gaiman wrote it as a BBC TV miniseries before it became a book.

I haven't seen the miniseries. I might give it a try to see if it makes me more interested in re-reading the book. I think partially it was me as a reader, but I still gave it a 3... Gaiman is definitely good tho.

Rita Costa (Lusitania Geek) I totally agree with you ! I mean his writing is good but the story itself...meh ! I heared there's a mini serie on BBC perhaps ?! But no, not interested to watch nor to read again. Probably I'll give another try on another book by Neil Gaiman but if doesn't work, i guess his type of stories isn't for me. Yeah he is bestseller "famous" author, but doesn't mean I should like it ! There...i spit it out. ;) Nice review by the way...

Yes, I think there is one. I will try something else by him, but not sure which one yet. Suggestions? Ha... you should always say how you feel, even if it may not be popular opinion. Thanks for the kudos!

Michelle I love Gaiman but he's not everyone's cup of tea. Try his children's books first like "Fortunately the Milk" or "Odd and the Frost Giants". They are easier to digest and effectively introduce you to Gaiman's writing style which can be crazy and unconventional, but very entertaining. Nice review by the way!

Wow, I didn't know he wrote children's books. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing. I appreciate it.

Carol Fillmore James, loved your review of this book and agree...this book was a bit too much for me too. Author's descriptions are incredible but maybe a tad too graphic for me?
