Treece I agree the ending does land with a "plonk". I own a copy and yet I didn't reread it. The movie was more interesting to a degree. Maybe because I like Michelle Pfeiffer :-)

I might do a re-read in the future. There's a storybook-style version with integrated illustrations by Charles Vess that would be nice to see. His art's very reminiscent of traditional storybook art. Also, regarding the film, it's got such a varied cast that I think everyone must have a personal favorite among them. I, for example, am a fan of the BBC show Coupling and was excited to see Sarah Alexander in it.

A percentage is a good way to mark books

Thanks, Martin! I find it's a convenient way to precisely dial in the extent to which you might slightly prefer one book over another :)

Thanks, Rusty! My favorite novel is The Ocean at the End of the Lane, closely followed by The Graveyard Book and Fortunately, the Milk.

That's great to hear, Rusty! I enjoyed American Gods a lot as well. Though personally I don't think he excels with longer books, and enjoy his shorter fiction much better.


Christina - Traveling Sister I enjoyed this one too! But I understand your feelings about the end!
