Not all of the pieces in this selection work (some things are just not meant to be read aloud) but for the most part, Fragile Things is a wondrous collection. There's something for everyone here, from dark gothic stories and spot-on human insight to wry humor and brilliant fantasy. If you liked American Gods and Anansi Boys you will love this collection. (And if you haven't read those two, I recommend them even more highly!)
Neil Gaiman is also one of the rare writers who read his own work and do it justice.
