Book Review–Smoke and Mirrors September 18, 2006

Posted by caveblogem in Books.

Smoke and Mirrors. Neil Gaiman–I’m not sure that I can claim to have read this, becuase I skipped all of the poetry.  Nothing personal, Mr. Gaiman, but poetry is simply too difficult for me to enjoy without music attached to it.  Perhaps you should put out an album?  Anyway, the stories in this collection are really quite good.  I love a well-written horror tale and the one about angels was really solid.  Interesting that, just on the heels of reading Mirror, Mirror I pick this up.  It ends with yet another version of Snow White.  Great tale about the end of the world written from the point of view of a ten-or-so-year-old.  Some other ones that didn’t stick as well in my head.
