This is the first book I have read by Gaiman, but will most likely will not be the last.
This is a fascinating and creepy tale, that is simple, yet amazing and fun to read. The story is pretty fast-paced with lots of weird little details thrown in.
I watched the movie when it first came out and I don't think I liked it very much, but after reading the book, I may go back and try to watch the movie again, because the book is so interesting.
The writing was plain and readable, but not in a way that was boring. Along the same vein, the characters were pretty simple and their relationships were uncomplicated. It is a good book for young readers, because it is not overly intricate.
Simple, yet fun, creepy, yet intriguing, this is definitely a book to check out.
