I love Neil Gaiman. Hearing him speak was one of the best nights of my life. I didn't include short story collections on here because those are so hard to judge.
  1. The Ocean at the End of the Lane
    Haunting and beautiful. Heartbreaking look at the loss of childhood innocence.
  2. Stardust
    It's like a new Princess Bride. So clever and charming. I'll never forget what Yvaine says when she falls to earth.
  3. The Graveyard Book
    Gaiman has a special way of finding the levity in even the saddest of stories. This is a perfect example of that.
  4. American Gods
    The first Gaiman book I ever read. It captured my imagination from the very beginning.
  5. Blueberry Girl
    I didn't include all of his children's books on this list. But I know a real life Blueberry Girl and so I had to put this one on. Also, this book makes me cry EVERY time I read it.
  6. Neverwhere
    Such a grand adventure! It's been too long since I've read this one.
  7. Coraline
    So creepy. Gaiman always knows what will send a shiver down your spine and a doppelgänger family with buttons for eyes will certainly do it.
  8. Anansi Boys
    Doesn't quite capture the magic of American Gods, but the family aspect is very well done.
