The interpersonal relationships between characters really start to get complicated in this book. And I’m not just talking the ones between Anita and all of her various lovers. I also mean between Anita and her “regular” friends, as well as between Jean-Claude and the greater vampire community.
I think this is the strongest book in the series so far. Pity that it took until the third book to really get there, to be honest – if it wasn’t for my love of all things series, and of my desire to finish what I start, I might not have lost interest before I got here.
By the time I read Club Dead, I had an image of the main characters in my mind. And really, I think this is the only book-to-tv series where I actually thought they did such an amazing job in the adaptation that I preferred it!
I cannot possibly say enough good things about this book.
I liked the way that Gaiman found a way to make the story a little bit creepy without going too over-the-top for young readers. I found myself just as involved in the narrator’s head as I had been in more complex books, and I wanted everything to work out for Coraline.
