I'm sad and feel apologetic. I didn't like this as much as the rest of you. Maybe the problem is my lack of familiarity with Kipling. Maybe I expected too much.

There are YA books that aren't just good YA books, but good books period. I can't help comparing him to Pratchett and feeling that Pratchett does it better. Maybe Gaiman was writing for even younger adults. Dunno.

I walked away thinking: Well, that was a nice little book.

Neil Gaiman is not to everyone's taste. I liked it more than I expected to, and my husband and my daughter both read it, too, so it was fun to have something we could all discuss.

I love Gaiman . American Gods is one of my favorites.
