I have finally, finally finished this book! This is a weird one because, to be honest, I still don’t know if I enjoyed it. It was a slow mover, it was exhausting but… I didn’t want to put it down. I couldn’t commit to any other book while this one was still part read. It was just there tormenting me constantly. It’s just taken me ages to actually finish the beast because, in sitting down for nearly a day, I only managed 50 to 60 pages – which dragged, and dragged. But then, even after 6 hours of slogging away I wanted to read more – and I didn’t really understand why that was the case.
I’ve loved previous works by Gaiman, which is why I picked this up as I just wanted to read more. Overall, I was really surprised as this book wasn’t much what I was expecting – but then I don’t really know what I was expecting as I went in to this relatively blind.
