"Seeing a shooting star. It is not like a fleeting light across the sky as I imagined, but like a shining diamond on black velvet, it descends leisurely. My heart moved: it fell on There, I’m going to find it. I don’t know if it will be a meteor, a hot gemstone, or something even more incredible. The inspiration for "Stardust" was born in an instant."——Neil Gaiman
2. Neverwhere: A Novel (London Below)
"In this city, the old things are fighting against the clumsy new things. Although there is no malice, they are equally disrespectful."——Neil Gaiman
3. The Sandman
|TV series American Gods|
"When retelling these stories, I try to imagine myself in the land where these stories were born and told for the first time quite a long time ago."——Neil Gaiman
"(I) writing a book is like opening a restaurant. If you think the burger in the shop is delicious, next time I come, I will serve you salmon; the third time I come, I invite you to taste ice cream...I hope that when I write another big book, people will complain, 'Why doesn't this look like "American Gods"?'"
6. Good Omens

The Graveyard Book Quotes
"Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead."
"There are only two things that can protect you from the shadows: sunlight and fire."
"The graveyard was a place of dreams. It was a place of safety. And it was a place where Bod felt he truly belonged."
"Death had always been a part of Bod's life, but now he was beginning to realize that death was the easy part. Living was harder."
"You don't get to choose whether or not you will die. You can only decide how to live."
"It is easy, when you are young, to believe that what you desire is no less than what you deserve, to assume that if you want something badly enough, it is your God-given right to have it."
"The graveyard was his home, and that was okay. He was who he was, and where he was, and he was content."
"It is said that the dead do not rest easy in the graveyard, but Bod had never found this to be the case."
"The graveyard was his school, and the ghosts were his teachers."
"Sometimes dead is better."
Honorable Mentions: Best Neil Gaiman Books Ranked
- "Fortunately, the Milk" by Neil Gaiman is a children's book. it is good for a sci-fi children's novel, and the illustrations are also very imaginative. Although there is nothing special about Neil Gaiman's text, it is very easy for a child to enter the picture and let you There is a sense of pictures!.
- "Trigger Warning" by Neil Gaiman is a collection of short stories. This is the first Neil Gaiman book I read before American Gods picked it up twice and read a third of it. Compared with the short stories in it, I like it better. His preface is written like a short story. Read the introduction. Some people say that they dare not read it at night, but I feel okay. Some stories have a sense of fantasy.
- "Anansi Boys," Before reading this book, I read American Gods (2001). There is a handsome photo of the author on the back cover. The Anansi (Anansi spider god) mentioned in the book evolved into the novel Anansi Boys by the author four years later. The book tells a very interesting story: the hero who lives so-so and is about to get married finds out that his dead father is a cunning spider god who is famous for playing tricks on others in the magic world and has made countless enemies; The brother with supernatural power has messed up his life and even snatched away his wife-to-be. So he delusionally wants to enter the magic world, looking for a good way to reverse the situation, but he doesn't know that there are more terrifying things happening in real life, and black humor keeps coming. . . Multiple clues are interlaced and the parallel between reality and magic. Stories are like cobwebs, connecting each thread, and you can follow each story to its center because the center is the ending. Everyone is a string of stories. Looking forward to the movie version.
- "Odd and the Frost Giants" by Gaiman is a children's book. A loving fantasy fairy tale. A boy with a disabled leg and the three Norse gods who turned into animals met each other in the icy and snowy forest. Go back to the earth and get rewarded yourself (heal your legs and gain wisdom). Love, kindness, courage, three-piece suit, the old routine of fairy tales. The brown bear, the eagle, and the fox correspond to Thor, Odin, and Loki respectively, which fit very well.
- "The Sleeper and the Spindle" Gaiman is the best at rewriting fairy tales. It is not the prince who kisses the princess awake, and it is not the princess who sleeps. In addition to the twist in the plot, many elements in the fairy tale, such as name, jealousy, youth, etc., are also well-pointed. In addition, the voice of the narrator also makes people laugh out loud from time to time as if telling the story to you right in front of your eyes.
- "Fragile Things" by Gaiman is a collection of short stories. I still remember that when I first finished reading A Study in Emerald, I jumped up in surprise. NG interpreted the highest level of fanfiction after delicate deconstruction and reconstruction. After running and listening to NG's own reading version on Audible, the shorter the stories in the collection, the more weird and difficult to understand.
