“The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.”
What a great read! This was my first book by Neil Gaiman, and I really enjoyed every moment of it. I don't know much about the other books that he's written, aside from the fact that he does some books for children (although they're pretty dark) and graphic novels. He captures the thoughts and emotions of a child very well - the story is told through the eyes of a 7 year old.
Although he was the main character, the most intriguing characters for me were the Hempstock ladies. Eerie, powerful, they really reeled me in!
The book was kind of creepy, without being scary. Just the way Gaiman notes a character's smile is enough to make me feel a chill. This will definitely not be the last book of his I read!
