“The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.”
This is the second book I've read by Neil Gaiman, and I love love love him. I am a big baby when it comes to scary things. It took me over a year to read World War Z because I could only read it during the day, and in tiny chunks. Neil Gaiman has such a great writing style which I can only describe as deliciously creepy. It isn't too scary for me to read and enjoy, but it's definitely no walk in the park either. He can make my hair stand on end just by the way he describes someone's smile. And I love the way the creepiness builds through his books.
I read the kindle edition, and it was illustrated. Please excuse the craptastic images.
Love the scotty dogs. Not scary. But bonus points for the canines.
The other mother. Really fucking creepy.
Off to find more Gaiman to add to the TBR!
