Very original. A totally absorbing read. Neil Gaiman creates a brilliant world with interesting characters and sinister villains. If you want to read anything by Neil Gaiman read this book. I cannot recommend highly enough. by steve sabine
Reading Gaiman's story about Nobody Owens, I felt transported to my childhood nightmares, and I was compelled to believe in magical creatures again. It's an absorbing, thrilling, heart-warming story. by Nuria Ortiz
