Earlier this spring, I had decided that one of my birthday presents to myself was that I was going to re-read all of my favorite books. It started off that way, with Neverwhere, wound up working through Neil Gaiman’s novels. I’m anxiously waiting for the tenth anniversary edition of American Gods to come out in paperback in a few weeks. Stardust arrived in the mail a few days ago, although that was my least favorite of his (even though I adore the movie adaptation)*.
I’m just going to assume that everyone has read Nail Gaiman’s novels, so I’m not going to bother with the descriptions or reviews of each. If you have not yet done so, start with my favorite, Neverwhere, and go from there. If you have read everything already, read them all again.
Ender’s Game, obviously, is not by Neil Gaiman, and it actually isn’t one of my favorite novels. It’s a very enjoyable novel in its own right, and is actually being filmed in New Orleans right now. I’m curious if the success of Harry Potter and The Hunger Games is why it’s finally in production after all this time.
I think I’ll be spending the rest of this rainy afternoon with The Sandman series.
**There was a ten minutes pause in updating this, spent browsing his titles on Amazon, adding and removing items from my cart, debating whether or not I want to dig through our storage unit to find the copies we already own. I know we have Coraline, The Graveyard Book, Fragile Things, and Smoke & Mirrors (mostly first editions, no less), and now I’m wondering if it’s worth searching through 50+ boxes of books, or re-buying them for a penny and then eventually donating them to the library**.
