Real imagination


I love the way Neil Gaiman combines reality and fantasy in Neverwhere (which is, by the way, such a lovely title) -- the combination of human truths and creative adventures is, well, fantastic. The unraveling of the plot came a little early, I thought, but there were still enough trials for the characters that it didn't feel anticlimactic. I loved the ending: satisfying without being completely predictable.

Yay, Neil Gaiman again. :) I've read this one and wasn't a big fan. There's a cheesy miniseries of this available on Netflix if you're interested. The book actually was written after the miniseries, interestingly enough.

Well, now that's just weird! Made-for-book TV?

Pretty much. :) All I can say is that you can't go in with high expectations.
