I love Neil Gaiman. I particularly loved Coraline and the Sandman.

But I have a confession.  I only read half of the Graveyard Book.

Is that bad?

I am not sure why the book never grabbed me; it certainly is well-
written and entertaining, but I guess I never felt connected to the characters.  It was like I was reading the book through a haze, if
that makes any sense.  It was hard for me to concentrate on the words on the page.  So, I gave up.

I’m sorry, Neil.  I’ll try again when my brain is less foggy, I promise!
