I devoured it like candy!! And Gaimen's narration has gotten so great. Really, really, great! I highly recommend this book for adults and those children who's parents trust them with a wee bit of violence and horror. Its a coming of age but one that beautifully and artfully acknowledges that the past,even the distant past, is a powerful force of life all around us, that those who walked before us could be closer then they seem, and they might be loving and sympathetic. I listened to the book straight through, in one sitting, I couldn't help it!
Its amazing that an entire series can be written about the power of British pluck. Anything could happen in these stories. No device needs to be supported by the rest of the story as long as the main character has her tea at regular intervals.
This series is not bad, and its not very good either, and inexplicably, I have read every single book in the series and am looking forward to more. how could I possibly rate this without missleading a little.
I was surprized at how much I liked this. It was fun and sweet and at times believably scary. If you have a hard time with ridiculous and far fetched story lines this book is not for you, but I found that the more ridiculous and absurd it got the more I enjoyed myself. The best part is that there is more to the story in the other books. I am really looking forward to them!
