The Sleeper & the Spindle

The Sleeper & the Spindle - Neil Gaiman

Not totally what I expected—but then, I guess my expectations were somehow influenced by that (by now) famous kiss image, which gave the book more of a LGBT feeling than it actually has.

 

This slight qualm put aside, the story was right up my alley, with a dark enough twist, and the art brilliant (I love the use of golden touches here and there to highlight the black & white illustrations).
