I'm working my way through Gaiman's works, and, so far, this is his most mature, complex, and utterly riveting novel of the bunch. Fascinatingly rich with ideas and mythology, with a strong hero surrounded by a cast of brilliantly rendered characters. "Filler"? Not on your life. Every word is crafted with intention. Every side road leads back to the main one. I found the narrator a little annoying at first after the delicious performance of "Anansi Boys". But he grows on you, and turns out to be just right, with great pacing and sensitivity to the writing. I highly recommend this one!
