Reading other reviews, I see that many people write a summary of what the book is about. When I read reviews, I look for why people like one book over another. Much like picking out the write brand of blender, I'd rather know how reading a good story made someone feel over the plot summary. That's what reading the inside cover of a book or Amazon's little blurb is for.
First, I collect books that I would want my child to read one day and meanwhile will recommend to my tutoring students. I recommend books with a sense of adventure, compassion and and well defined relationships. To me, a great story is all about the relationships. Second, I collect books I will read over and over again until I can no longer get anything new or I can't feel the great emotion that comes from the reading journey. Lastly, I collect books from authors who consistently tell a fantastic story and appeal to my sometimes dark sense of humor.
All that said, I love Neil Gaiman. His sense of how relationships work and the stakes he raises for his characters are always thrilling and always placed in the realm just outside of reality. Nobody Owens is a beautiful simple character whose experiences create relationships for the reader to everyone he encounters in his life at the boundary between living and death. We begin with such high suspense and then while we are still gripping the ride's safety bars we allow the journey into life in the cemetery. Enjoy watching Bod grow into adulthood and you will happily accept the open ended ending.
