really liked it
Read from April 07 to 11, 2012

I remember reading bits and pieces of Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, but it was random. Still I enjoyed his writing and always kept him in mind. Finally saw a book by him in the local bookstore and immediatly picked it up (and shortly after I found My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me: Forty New Fairy Tales).

My first impressions (the shallow ones I cannot help but have) are the following:

1. Intriguing, beautiful cover art
2. Hmm, nice little "Read On" section in the back promoting his other books
3. Amusing chapter titles ("Chapter Fourteen, Which Comes To Several Conclusions").
4. Nice dedication.

I really did not like Spider at first and I felt only pity for Fat Charlie. Got to say though, after it was all said and done? I loved those fools!
