This story is a fantasy novel, a kind of a fairy tale twisted and turned, until it resembles nothing but horror. The happy ending which (always) was expected… all gone. This is the fifth Neil Gaiman book I’ve read. It is one of those I liked best aside from Coraline, of course. I have been a big fans of Neil Gaiman since I was nine years old.
Do people believe in magic? I’ve recently watched a movie called ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ a fantasy story, which brings me to a world full of hidden magic. Only that, most people don’t believe in magic. Ofelia, the hero, tried to bring it up, but all she received was wondering eyes from adults and questioning looks of whether something was wrong with her. They lacked the power to believe. It is also mentioned in Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder. After many years, everybody would get buried down under the rabbit’s fur. We’re all so comfortable, we would start picking up our own routine. We would never questioning things, trapped in a world where we expect everything to stay normal and panicking at every sign of strangeness.
Please, people! Don’t lose your sparkle.
