The Stardust movie looks to be a big deal with lots of stars involved. I'm looking forward to it.

American Gods is really excellent, winning both the Hugo and Nebula awards for best novel. I'd definitely put this on your list if you like his work.

Neil Gaiman is prolific but my favorite is Neverwhere, being a Londoner it has a special place in my heart but I would also recommend American Gods and the book he wrote with Terry Pratchett called Good Omens.
He has also written extensively in the graphic novel world if you like that sort of thing then take a look at the Sandman comics

Someone gave me a copy of Neverwhere a few days ago but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet.

yeah the book is really good, the film look like it will get big but I'm not a fan of Gaiman translating onto screen.

Neils real talent in my opinion is the quirky metaphors and personal insights that he adds to his characters and that just doent come accross without the text.

Neverwhere was a huge disappointment on TV and I didnt enjoy Mirrormask either as much as the textual versions.

I will go see the film but expect to be disapointed again.

I actually found this novel very difficult to get into. Maybe I was just reading it at a time when I was distracted or something. Should I give it another try?
