— feeling bad egg
So the hubby wanted to watch the show adaption. I told him I wasn't watching it with him unless I read the book first. So after he read it, here we are!
This book was harder to read than I thought it would be. I thought I would fly through it, page after page, but it was a slow pace. I actually looked at my hubby and said,'it's one of those ones you gotta read all the way through to get it, right?!'. He nodded and told me to stick with it. All the while, I was baffled at having to stick with a Gaiman novel...
I want to say when I got to the end that I had some sense of clarity and understanding but I can't. While these characters were so well-crafted, witty and fun to read in dialogue, the story itself was lacking, confusing and all over the place. You can tell this book was written with two very different authors.
Oh, how I pray the show is not like the book. I have a friend who says the show is better but I'm on the fence after struggling with the book.
Definitely not my favorite Gaiman book, that is still The Ocean At The End Of The Lane. Read that one if you haven't already.
