Not quite as good as The Ocean at the End of the Lane, but still another very, very strong entry from Gaiman. Full review to come.

16.03% "Gaiman's writing is always a pleasure to read, and he seems to be at his best when he's writing for kids or about childhood. This is really good so far. Normally, this kind of story would be told from Scarlett's perspective - the normal person meeting the dead guy. That's especially true in MG. It's nice to see a reversal of the setup."
