I'm afraid I was disappointed in this one too. Maybe because my expectations were too high to begin with. People have been raving about Neil Gaiman to me for quite some time and I guess that led me to expect more. This was an ok book, quite interesting in parts, but as a whole really not my thing. )t could so easily have been, but unfortunately, there was too much that just didn't sit right with me. Well, we live and learn. I should probably make up my own mind and not listen too much to friends when it comes to choosing books to read.
