Book Review: Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman


My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Fragile Things is a collection of short stories by Neil Gaiman. As always, Gaiman’s imagination runs wild with this collection, touching on the familiar and the totally weird. There are new spins on old favorites (“A Study in Emerald”), poetry, macabre tales, and even a novella based on American Gods. It’s definitely more “adult” than some of his other works, but that only made it more irresistible.

Some of my favorite stories in the book included “Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves..,” “The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch,” “Harlequin Valentine,” and “How to Talk to Girls at Parties.”

There’s so much awesomeness packed into these pages that it was hard to put down. I may or may not have been late returning from my lunch break a few times for this very reason. Heh.

    1. Amazing review. It was shirt and to the point. I myself have not read anything by Neil although I have had my eye in American Gods for quite some time.

      1. I almost bought more but my bank account was like “oh no you don’t!” so looks like I’m waiting until Thursday even though I have 5 books that is my physical TBR pile sitting on my table :/
