    It is the only Gaiman I haven't read. I have no idea why. I really need to get on that.

    It's the only Gaiman I've really enjoyed! Same for Boyfriend.

    You didn't like Neverwhere or American Gods?

    I've loved pretty much all the Gaiman I've read. Stardust was probably my least favorite. We have Sandman, but I haven't grabbed it off the server yet.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    Okay, I liked Stardust. I haven't read Neverwhere. American Gods was good. I get kind of frustrated with the tone he uses, because it's the same in every book. Every book sounds like it has a narrator and that irks me. It's kind of reminiscent of Tolkien. I like the stories better than how they're told, if that makes sense. Most of the writing is amazing, but the voice bothers me.

    I honestly think Neverwhere is his best/most accessible book. I thought it far better than Stardust and along the same 'tone' Lighter than American Gods. I pretend he didn't write Anansi Boys because it sucked hard.

    Neverwhere <3.

    Stardust is a good one but not my favorite.

    I do like American Gods, but I'm in the same boat with ya on Anansi Boys... just not there.

    His Good Omens with Pratchet is such a wonderful ride... love that one too.

    Sandman is really just wonderful though. I guess it's a format issue. The others are straight up books, so it's different. They aren't going to touch that.
    Also due to being a graphic novel I feel that it needs to be read in hand. Old school.
    Though there are some current, really awesome, web comics I read... so I guess that is a bit unfair. But still...

    I loved Good Omens though whenever the kids showed up I got annoyed. So I guess I loved the parts they were not in.

    I'll have to check out Sandman. I've never gotten into comic books or graphic novels or the like. I have no idea why. I feel as if part of my nerdness is missing.

    Oh, Good Omens. Hell yes.

    Agreed on Anansi Boys.

    Hear, hear for Sandman!

    Also, I feel the need to revisit Anansi Boys. Just to see what all the hatin' is about. I don't remember it striking me as particularly awful but it's been a while.
