here comes the predictable review: I love it!!!!! If Neil Gaiman wasn’t online I’d say that I want to have babiez with his talent and imagination but since that would be utterly weird I won’t say it. *g* Seriously his writing is pure magic.
The story is fragmented into substories. This is clever and entertaining…but not always. I struggled with some of them because I either confused the people as the story turned up again or I was simply not interested. The idea is good, the topic too, the humor my kind of humor but it didn’t impress me that much.
I LOVE IT!
I think it took me two sentences to be completely drawn into the story, to be right there, in the house, on the cemetery. It actually gave me one horrible nightmare I think but if a story cannot get to you, then there must be something missing, right? And the only think I didn’t like about this one was, that it ended.
“We are put into the house that floats on the sea and we saw for the first time rats and it was hard to figure out how to die.”
*adds some more stars* I personally lack the adequate words to describe or comment on hers. It never stops to amaze me how she can express in one sentence (or one word or even the absence of it) what others have to do in 10 pages.
