Not for me. To me, this book was like slogging through a sewer. So much gratuitous sex, violence, and just disturbing, disgusting things. I finished it because I was really hoping that it would somehow come out at a lovely, hopeful place, but that didn't happen. Instead, I got dumped back out at the same place I started, only now I'm covered in filth. The book could potentially have opened meanful conversations about who/what we worship, but it only danced around the edges. That or I just didn't get this book at. all.

I'm a fan of pretty much anything Neil Gaiman has written. He is a brilliant writer. This is great read, easy, and full of action and adventure.
