Why did I love this book?
This novel(ette) does what so many others endeavor to and it does it in droves. Gaiman wields the fabric of mythology to craft a supernatural suspense/contemporary fantast story that envelopes the reader and draws us into two worlds. We all feel as though there is something living just beyond our perceptions and Gaiman harnesses that to drive a wildly enticing, and, at times, terrifying, story about a boy unwittingly wrapped in the winds of fate. The mundane is pushed aside for the fantastic and I would give just about anything to read this story again for the very first time.
