All in all, Fragile Things is a fun set of stories. I really like Gaiman's turn of phrase, and his imagination is truly unique. You range from fun poems to dystopian Sherlock Holmes London, a modern Beowulf story to scary childhood memories re-imagined, and anthropomorphic months of the year telling each other short stories around a bonfire to what happens when you meet alien girls at a party.
His voice narrating the book on tape was quite fun - he truly enjoys telling stories and I think it added a lot to the experience.
