Finally, finally, finally read this book. Now I can see the movie! yay!
This was a super quick and creepy read that was just perfect for Halloween last week. Obviously, written for a much younger reader than myself, but still Gaiman is an excellent story-teller. I loved the imagery and suspense he created, and his characters were fantastic. I can’t wait to see this come to life on the screen.
Of course, I didn’t really have to wait – the movie’s been out since…2009. I’m slow to these things. Plus, I wanted to read the book first. Gaiman has developed a cult-like nerd following, and if this book is any indication into the rest of his work it’s easy to see why.
If you’re looking for something fast, entertaining, and possibly a one-sitting read, this is perfect. I would recommend this to young readers also!
