The Ocean at the End of the Lane (2013)
language
English

review 1: i loved this book! There was so many original ideas and creativity put into this book that it was fun to read! In some parts it did relate to coraline though like when the housekeeper came in and she was this demon thing and in coraline there is this fake button eyed mom who turn...

English

review 1: This is nothing like the other Neil Gaiman books I've read. This one is downright goofy with illustrations the fit the humor perfectly. Dad's adventures while trying to buy milk for the breakfast cereal are amazing. And not believed until the last illustration which show the kids...

review 1: Adam Rex and Neil Gaiman are kind of my dream team author/illustrator pair, so I was pretty excited about this book. It is utterly charming. The plot is a little thin, so I won't be using it for story drama or anything like that, but it's simple and predictable rhythm would make ...
Neverwhere: BBC Dramatization (2013)

English

review 1: A Neil Gaiman story is always a treat. A Neil Gaimain story told by James McAvoy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Natalie Dormer, Christopher Lee, Anthony Head and an entire cast is auditory divinity. First and foremost, their obvious joy at participating in such an experience is palpable....

review 1: I happened to get the 2009 book from the library before this one and I hated it. I love comics and GNs but that one was just full of comics I didn't get at all. I was a bit weary but this collection is so much better. There's a wide range of story content and artwork. Not al...
Coraline and Other Stories (2009)
language
English
4.21 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: El estilo de Gaiman es algo inconstante... unas veces es muy bueno, otras veces es apenas pasable. El cuento principal, Coraline, tiene un buen comienzo y un buen final, pero nunca alcanza los niveles de estremecimiento que logra la película, el intermedio es demasiado largo y ge...

review 1: Books are always about someone who's special or something special happening. There are very few books that are about normal (everyday) things. Joey Harker, the main character in this book, is very special. In the multiverse that he lives in, the copies of him are special. Of thos...

Neil Gaiman's Calendar of Tales (KeepMoving) (2013)
language
English
4.24 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: What an amazing premise for a charming little collection of short stories! It's available as a free ebook. The premise: Neil Gaiman asked one question per month on Twitter, chose his favourite answer from all that were submitted, and then wrote a short story from that answer. The...

review 1: I accidentally found this book in Hong Kong International Airport while waiting for my homeward bound flight. Initially wanting to purchase some trashy magazines, this book brainwashed me all of a sudden. The name 'Neil Gaiman' is enough for me to instantly decide burning 218 HKD...

review 1: Neil Gaiman's macabre tribute to one of the greatest ever to have endorsed the genre, H.P. Lovecraft.More importantly, this one talks about 'Carcosa' and 'The King in Yellow', thus reminding me of TRUE DETECTIVE. That 4th star is for that!P.s.: A wonderful surprise awaits at the ...
The Absolute Sandman, Vol. 4 (2008)
language
English
4.75 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I thought that “The Kindly Ones” was too long when I originally read it, but that was over two years or so in floppies. It holds together really well as a complete work, though the first half does still drag a bit. I think that offering closure to both Rose’s story and Morpheus’ ...

review 1: I'm giving 5 stars but my real wish was to make it a 100-star book! Neil Gaiman is definitely my favorite author of all - and I read a lot. I mean, A LOT! This speech / book should be given to all college graduates around the world, along with the message: don't worry, it will wo...

English
4.16 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I feel badly for saying this, but I forgot I had listened to The Graveyard Book in audiobook format before picking up the first volume of the graphic novel, and even though the audiobook didn't make a significant impression on me enough to remember I listened to it, I remember li...
Nothing O'Clock (2013)

review 1: I have a bit of a funny relationship with Neil Gaiman. I cannot decide if I am madly in love with him and his work or if I don't like it at all. I sway from mindset to mindset every time I read a piece of his work. But luckily I loved Nothing O'Clock from start to finish! I have ...

review 1: This is the first thing I've read by Neil Gaiman that I really, really enjoyed. I loved his take on the queen in Snow White's story--it was dark and ensured that you will never look at Snow White in the same way ever again. The only thing that bugged me about this was how sex was...

review 1: This is a sequel to Interworld, by the same authors. I went straight from the first one to this and enjoyed it very much, I will also read more if it keeps coming.I would strongly, very strongly recommend NOT reading this unless you have read the first one. I tried to start with ...

review 1: My grade = 88% - B+I found a few pages of this short novella attached to the copy of Anansi Boys that I was reading, and I recognized it as another part of Gaiman's American Gods universe - so I found a copy on e-bay, but haven't read much else from it.The main character in both ...

English

review 1: I was a bit nervous beginning The Kindly Ones because it seemed like we were all over the place reintroducing characters just for the sake of cramming them all in. In the end, I see that was precisely what was happening and it was so appropriate and necessary. As this arc came to...

review 1: In this series of e-shorts released monthly in 2013 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary they certainly saved the best for last though Neil Gaiman does have the advantage of having written two scripts for the Eleventh Doctor so knows his Doctor well and contributed to the canon.This...

review 1: This was a very cute book. I like that it shows Chu being afraid that the other kids may not like him (not just being afraid to go to school). I think a lot of kids have this fear. On top of the nice story, the illustrations are wonderful and had a slightly realistic feeling to t...

review 1: I was a bit more pareve about the original Chu book, which seemed to me to rely too heavily on a single gag, but this book charmed the pants off my 5 year old, who will be starting her first day in full-day school next week. The "Ah-choo" joke remains, but it's put into a more me...

review 1: Wonderfully enchanting. This has been my first graphic novel, and in truth I was intrigued because my sweetheart loves Gaiman, but also because this edition is annotated. The idea never occurred to me. These stories are inventive and complex. For relative newbies like me (I had t...

review 1: How to Talk to Girls at Parties by Neil Gaiman "A short story from New York Times bestselling author, Neil Gaiman. Plus an excerpt from his new novel, The Ocean at the End of the Lane." It is quite a quick read talking about a boy trying to interact with girls in a random party t...

review 1: Instructions is one of my favorite Neil Gaiman poems and is something that is as wonderful from a reader's perspective as it is from a writer's or those that are interested in archetypes. Instructions tells of the journey. Not a specific one, but one that in it's deepest sense is...

review 1: I have read this free e-book from Amazon Kindle during my bloat hibernation last December 25th. The e-book includes an excerpt from Ocean at the End of the Lane. Reading the "How to Talk to Girls at Parties", my first impression was it's a narrative guide book on how to talk to g...
