Would I watch the movie?
I heard that there was going to be a movie of this. While I don’t really begrudge anyone wanting to do films based on Gaiman’s work, I also recognize that trying to translate this to that medium–assuming that they’ll try to make a Hollywood thing out of this–will be tricky. After all, this is written as the memories of a middle-aged man. It covers some very adult situations, originally seen through the eyes of a child, of course, but translated by the mind of a much older person. It deals with some viscerally uncomfortable things experienced by the very young (this is decidedly more off-putting than The Other Mother from Coraline). To figure out a way to balance that might be a challenge that not many movie types are up for.
But if they can do it…oh, if they can do it…I bet it would be marvelous to see.
