I really really loved this book. The darkness of the “fairytale” was well written and in a sci-fi sort of way, believable. I was drawn to Door as a character, not so much Richard, though. I did feel bad for him but that’s about it. He seemed like the sniveling type. I liked him just a little bit, not as much as I had liked to. On the whole, I thought this was a great book- I don’t read much sci-fi, but I will read Gaiman. Loved this book. Didn’t want to put it down.
