The book wasn‘t bad but this is one case where I feel like the movie was better.

I‘m happy to say 8 met all but my biking 2xs a week. I stayed within my limits on fast food and I‘ll be upping my book goal to 10 now. I didn‘t get to participate much in the walk-a-this today since we had my granddaughter‘s first bday party but I hope to make up some of that tomorrow.

A cute book. Nothing heavy and nothing serious. I wasn‘t crazy about the ending- it was a bit too unrealistic and self centered. But a good listen while I worked in my first paint by number.

I absolutely loved this book. This has to be my favorite Neil Gaiman book so far. It‘s the first book in a long time for me that I just couldn‘t put down. And since I don‘t have a picture to go with the book I‘ll just post two of the five best in my life :)

wanderinglynn Have you watched the adaptation from Amazon Prime? If you liked the book, I highly recommend watching the series. It‘s only 6 episodes. 5mo
KathyWheeler I agree with @wanderinglynn ; you should definitely watch the show if you haven‘t already. 5mo
Aims42 I agree with these ladies 1000% about watching the Amazon Prime adaptation @wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler 👍🏻👍🏻 (edited) 5mo
Lova @wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler @Aims42 I just finished the series yesterday and loved it! It was so well done! Aziraphale and Crowley were dead on! I wish Neil Gaiman has done the script for American Gods like he did Good Omens. I enjoyed the book but I‘m so confused with the series. 5mo
wanderinglynn Agree. I haven‘t liked the American Gods adaptation as much as I love Good Omens. 5mo

There‘s a bit of chemistry in this that I just don‘t get but the failings of the Soviet Union and the hiding of essential information was dumbfounding. A very good book very well researched and written.

I enjoyed the first half of this book but but was disappointed in the monster at the end. But more than anything I was disgusted by the sex scene amongst 12 year olds near the end. What point is there in that? All the other characters have quirks that help them defeat the monster but hers is to let them all finish in her? WTF is that? They are 12!!! Sorry Steve but you lost my respect with this one.

Woohoo! Finished this one. I love Gaiman‘s work and this was no exception. It was a little more difficult since I admit I had no knowledge of the Marvel characters other than the little bit I‘ve seen on movies. I had to keep asking my husband who people were and how they fit together. But it was an excellent story.
