Read full description of the books:
Neil Gaiman insisted that all his Twitter followers buy this ebook, when it was 99 cents on Amazon.com. With that kind of recommendation backing this book, I bought the book for my Kindle with incredibly high expectations going in but absolutely no idea what the book was actually about.
In short: Death.
Slightly longer, it's about a group of people actively being messed about by Death. And Death is a total dick.
While Carroll's writing is undeniably beautiful and engaging, I can't say I truly enjoyed this book. Carroll jumped from character to character in each chapter, with little explanation or clear connection between them all. Many times, just as I found myself interested in a character's narrative, the story would jump time, place and person. After a few instances of this, I learned not to get too invested.
The ending itself was also frustrating, simply because it was so lesson-y and on the nose. Almost like a fairy tale in the way it neatly taught a lesson. But since the book up to them reveled on a free form story style, the neat bow tying everything up at the end seemed out of place and lazy.
Sorry, Neil, maybe next time....

Read information about the authorJonathan Carroll (b. 1949) is an award-winning American author of modern fantasy and slipstream novels. His debut book, The Land of Laughs (1980), tells the story of a children’s author whose imagination has left the printed page and begun to influence reality. The book introduced several hallmarks of Carroll’s writing, including talking animals and worlds that straddle the thin line between reality and the surreal, a technique that has seen him compared to South American magical realists.
Outside the Dog Museum (1991) was named the best novel of the year by the British Fantasy Society, and has proven to be one of Carroll’s most popular works. Since then he has written the Crane’s View trilogy, Glass Soup (2005) and, most recently, The Ghost in Love (2008). His short stories have been collected in The Panic Hand (1995) and The Woman Who Married a Cloud (2012). He continues to live and write in Vienna.
