Dear Neil Gaiman,

Fragile ThingsI adore you. I adore your work.  I adore your blog, and the awesome video of you singing Creepy Doll with JoCo.  So, clearly I was predisposed to like Fragile Things, your multiple-award-winning short story collection.  Except something went wrong–though there were some stories that I thought were true gems, and nothing less than I expected of one of the gods of my personal geek universe, there were one or two stories that left me bored.  I put your book down in the middle of that one about the gastronomists for a month or two before picking it up again.  What happened?

It’s okay, though.  I still adore your work.  You rock.  Also, I can’t wait to get my hands on the graphic adaptation of my fave story in the collection, The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch.  You+Michael Zulli=wonderfulness.
You get three stars from me this time, but I’m sure The Graveyard Book will up your average.

Love,

apple
