Recommended for: readers that love magical realism

This is the first novel by Neil Gaiman that I've read. I enjoyed it, and would recommend it to readers that love magical realism. My favorite parts of this novel are the ones involving magic, although I also loved how the main character found joy and satisfaction in simple things like a well made cheese and tomato sandwich whenever he interacted with the Hempstock women or spent time on their farm.
