**** Couldn't put it down. Gaiman's first novel shows his amazing skill to create complete worlds. This is a horror/fantasy book that I can highly recommend. Next on my list is Gaiman's American Gods.
** First novel by author of Girl with a Pearl Earring. Very good story line, just not as well written as Girl with a Pearl Earring. The voice of the American woman was unpolished and awkward at times.
