Neil Gaiman's Fragile Things

I finished listening to Neil Gaiman's Fragile Things, a collection of short stories, novellas, and poems, on audio. Gaiman narrates it himself. He's always been a good reader but his skill has improved. Now he is among the best readers I've listened to. (Yet another thing to envy him for. :-)

I didn't like everything in the collection - some of his stuff is too slight or too self-referential for my taste. But I liked several of the stories quite a lot.

If I ran the world, books containing scenes in which dogs or cats are tortured/killed would come with a mandatory warning sticker. If you don't like stories with such scenes in them, don't read Gaiman's story "Feeders and Eaters".
