This is one of those books I read over and over, and I get more out of it each time I read it. It is rich with symbolism and humor, and his characterizations are amazing. I think my favorite thing about the book, indeed about all Williams' novels, is their gripping sense of the supernatural. Williams was obviously well-acquainted with the supernatural world, and was able to vividly describe it. It's a fun Christmas read.
