by Neil Gaiman
towards the end, i had the vague feeling that i’d read the book before and had forgotten about it until then. i’m still not sure – after all, it’s a fairy tale that i probably read before, and not necessarily this version by gaiman, but still a bit frustrating. a good story – i like how it bends and twists, though many parts were really predictable.
the illustrations were offputting, mostly – just not my style. but they stuck in my head, forcing my brain to use this image of tristan instead of imagining one, etc etc. hmph. don’t like that.
again, neil gaiman – interesting, some good parts, but overall i’m not super-impressed. what am i not getting about him that makes others just adore him?
