I am very careful to read all the reviews on books I read for any hints of a "rating." No mention was made of what a dark and disturbing book this is from the very beginning. There is a stream of swearing throughout but it fits with the disturbing characters who use it. There are vividly described "sex" scenes that really makes one wonder about the mind of someone who conjures up such things in able to write them. I was not able to finish the book as much as I would have liked to because my moral compass simply would not allow me to go on. I have not read anything by Gaiman before and in future I will be sure to skirt around anything with his name on it.
I wish I could put my finger on what it was that I didn't like about the narration. I guess it just felt a little hokey and unreal.
