You are on my bucket list. You are coming to the bookstore I used to work for at the end of June. I can't pass up the opportunity to see if I can cross an item off my bucket list! Big Grin

Hey there! Lovely first post, by the way, but I hope you know that Neil doesn't read the message boards here. You can use the link on his site:
http://www.neilgaiman.com/feedback/?to=neil

(Meeting him was on my bucket list as well - I got to a signing a few years back.)

I'm planning on going to The Parish at the End of the Tour; anyone else going? I missed HotR; this will/would be my 1st NG signing, and my first signing in a while from anyone. (Last WG was probably 4-5 yrs ago now.)

...and this should pro'ly be in the tour thread...

Hello,
I'm interested in seeing Neil when he comes to Seattle on July 2nd. I see the ticket price includes a copy of his new book, but I'm curious.. is this a book signing? Will me and my ever so excited partner be able to get our books signed and thank Neil for his lovely work?
Thank you,

Keith

I read the blog, I am on the board, I even work in a library, so how did I miss a new interworld novel?

(Sorry posted in wrong thread. Not on my regular computer, so leaving it here.)

The book has been out for two days and no posts?? Frown

I read Amanda's blog post about the book prior to reading and am glad for it. Only hit chapter three as of yet, but am thoroughly enjoying the tale so far!

I think unfortunately all of the discussions have been on Facebook...

I've read it. It's rather lovely. I don't like talking about it until everyone has read it but I am disappointed that it wasn't dedicated to me like his other books were!

I'm failing as a fanboy. I managed to pick it up the day of release, but I've only just started reading. Maybe about 50 pages in.

Loving the story so far. Does the writing style in this one seem a bit 'lighter' to anyone else? I dunno how to describe what I'm feeling from it. A very well woven tale, maybe just feels more linear (so far)?

What a little book full of wonders.

One question came to my head when finishing: whose funeral was the narrator attending?

I was lucky enough to attend one of the signing events last week. Finally got a chance to properly sit down and read it this morning.

Just... wow.

I feel like it was a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster made out of paper. It crept up on my brain before I really noticed it, and then dribbled me out into a puddle on the floor when it was done. I haven't had a "book hangover" like this in ages.

I kind of assumed he was attending his father's funeral.
I liked the beginning of the book a lot. The enigmatic maiden mother crone thing in the middle, i dunno, i was a bit disengaged.
i wasn't sure i liked the book until the end.

the ending was the perfect ending.



lookit me, i'm postin! wheee!

Silk Underground and I were discussing the new book, and while it is lovely it does feel like it incorporates a lot of the familiar elements that his novels tend to have. I enjoyed it and will probably re-visit it at another point. Having recently re-read American Gods, Ocean's short narrative leaves me hungry for a more dense Gaiman work.

Still. Haven't. Read. It.
BUT I am seeing him tomorrow and will get a reading and get my copy and get it signed and will devour it forthwith!
I wish there was an audio version I could listen to on my drive to/from the signing.

Intrigued by all of the 1-star reviews on Amazon. And even some of you here (well, on Fb) weren't blown away and even sounded disappointed. I wonder if, other than a chance to see him again, the book is worth all that?

I think it is his best book to date (and he wrote some darn good stories before).

I got the audiobook read by himself via audible btw.
