This is an excellent book. It deserved a 4.5, maybe even a 5.

Those who have seen the movie will note it does an excellent job of staying close to the story. The story itself was very engaging, and provides a great message to its audience. The only real complaint I have is that, despite the fact it was blessedly short, it may have been just a tad too short. Gaiman does such a great job telling the tale that I wish it was just a big longer, with a tad more development of some of the minor characters. That's it. Pretty petty really.
