Death & Cost of Living

DEATH AND THE HIGH COST OF LIVING by Neil Gaiman.

REVIEW: The High Cost of Living is a continuation of Harvey Award-winning fantasy writer Gaimans series detailing the cosmic duties of a loose family of seven immortals. Not quite Gods, they embody realms of psychic experience: Dream, Desire, Despair, Destiny, Delirium, Destruction and Gaimans very popular character, Death. Reaper, yes; but Deaths not very grim as she goes about her business visiting the just-about-to-die and ushering them into their new existence. In this story she meets Sexton, a teenager contemplating suicide, and they end up searching New York City to find a witchs heart (the old hag hid it centuries ago, its a witch tradition), so the old girl can hide it again. Up pops the Eremite, an evil wizard type, out to steal Deaths mysterious necklace, who makes the usual threats against life and limb. Gaiman has created a character sweetly at odds with her modbid duties; dressed like a Satanic rocker, shes as pretty as a cheerleader and even more upbeat. While Gaiman brings a gritty urban contemporaneity to the fantasy genre, the story also suffers from a TV script-like sensibility--danger-defying quips, the good-hearted overweight black neighbor, melodramatic villain. Nevertheless the combination of wry mystic immortal and MTV slacker produces an engaging chemistry. Top-notch production, and although the illustration is a bit stiff, its stylishly rendered and very nicely colored. The introduction is by pop singer Tori Amos. -- Publishers Weekly.
