Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders

Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders - Neil Gaiman I loved Coraline, Neil Gaiman's dark tale for young children, but this gossamer collection just didn't do it for me. There's too much whimsy, too much lederdemain. Characterisation is neglected in favour of plot twists and unspecified terrors. There are flashes of brilliance, certainly, butthe whole thing is too uneven.
