Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
This took forever to finish over multiple tries, which pretty much sums up how engaged I was with this book. I love Neil Gaiman's stories, but nearly every story in this collection left me thinking either, "okay that was different" or "wtf did I just read?". They mostly felt like the kind of flash fiction where you are exposed to some vignette disconnected from a larger story, with no sense of what that larger story might be. I really dislike flash fiction.
Paperback, now removed from my bookshelf and added to the box of books to be donated to the library.
