My friend made me read "Good Omens" a couple years back, and imediately followed it up with "American Gods"  Well, I remembered her talking about it and then bought it when I saw the book.
I loved both of those and went on to read more.  I found out a couple years ago that Coraline was by him and that I had read that when I was younger on recommendation from a Barnes and Noble employee.  Then I watched "MirrorMask", all thanks to that same friend.

I own Coraline, Good Omens, American Gods, Anasasi Boys (sic?, unread), Stardust and Neverwhere (most recently read) and loved all of them.  I can't wait to read AB and I really want to see the Coraline movie

Sandman's so big and sprawling that it's hard to categorically say "don't read this". There are parts of it that every Gaiman fan will love, and other parts that some are going to find hard to get through to the end. And much of the first volume is kind of comic-book-y which I found a little off-putting. It took a few episodes before he hit his stride, in my opinion.<br />

Me, I hated the thing in the first volume that took place in the diner. That was just ... ugly. My favorite parts were "Dream of A Thousand Cats" and "Ramadan" which are seminal Gaiman Moments...

Neverwhere is fantastic, definitely read it if you can. Never read Sandman though

What's Neverwhere like? Have you read any of the Sandman comics?
