I stopped reading at 80%. I just don't care how this story ends. For me, Gaiman excels at writing screenplays that a team then translates to TV and film. He has an amazing imagination, but his writing style is dull, characters flat, and description ...more

Amanda and 113 other people liked Meredith's review of The Graveyard Book:
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
"**SPOILER ALERT**

This book was entirely mediocre. The plot was disjointed and very loosely woven throughout the story, and much of it didn't make any sense. Details (what few details there were) seemed to be added at the last minute to make later..." Read more of this review »

William Makepeace Thackeray
“One of the great conditions of anger and hatred is, that you must tell and believe lies against the hated object, in order, as we said, to be consistent.”
William Makepeace Thackeray, Vanity Fair

William Makepeace Thackeray
“if you are not allowed to touch the heart sometimes in spite of syntax, and are not to be loved until you all know the difference between trimeter and trameter, may all Poetry go to the deuce, and every schoolmaster perish miserably!”
William Makepeace Thackeray, Vanity Fair

Lois McMaster Bujold
“Cecil flashed a grin. "Quite. Plus your rather irritating habit of treating your superior officers as your, ah..." Cecil paused, apparently groping again for just the right word.

"Equals?" Miles hazarded.

"Cattle," Cecil corrected judiciously.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, The Vor Game

William Goldman
“Who are you?"
"No one of consequence."
"I must know."
"Get used to disappointment.”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride

Jonathan Safran Foer
“Just how destructive does a culinary preference have to be before we decide to eat something else? If contributing to the suffering of billions of animals that live miserable lives and (quite often) die in horrific ways isn't motivating, what would be? If being the number one contributor to the most serious threat facing the planet (global warming) isn't enough, what is? And if you are tempted to put off these questions of conscience, to say not now, then when?”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals
