Review: Signal to Noise by Neil Gaiman

Signal to NoiseSignal to Noise by Neil Gaiman

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A very sombre book. The delusions of the scriptwriter/main character initially when he became sick were very sad, certain that he was getting better. The whole book seems packed with metaphor and meaning, but how you choose to interpret it is another thing. The story that will never be told, never seen onscreen, but the writer labours at it anyhow. The oncoming apocalypse within his story, that fizzles like a damp squib. What does it mean, eh? The reader is left to decide. Much like life.

I found it an enjoyable read, in a melancholy way. But I think there are probably better places to begin exploring Gaiman’s work.
