Whimsical. Gaiman's short stories are always wonderful twisted little things that haunt me long after the last page. ( )

While I did not really like the book, I think the author is brilliant. I think that this was a classic case of great author and just a book that I did not immediately or anywhere during the book fall in love with the characters or anything in the book. I think that having two boys "crash" a party where there are aliens is just plain outlandish and crazy. I liked the idea but honestly, it was not the type of entertainment that I like to read.

How to Talk to Girls at Parties (ebook) by Neil Gaiman - good

This is exactly what you would expect from a short story by Neil Gaiman.
A quick and quirky read. Think it was a free download, wouldn't rush to
buy it, but an enjoyable half hour.

This is just a very short story about a shy teen who gets dragged along by a friend to a party where he tries to interact with some of the girls but is so shy he can hardly interact at all. He also doesn't quite listen to what's being told to him.
Fun. ( )

I got this in audiobook format and maybe because it's a short story, I didn't connect to it as much as all other Neil Gaiman books I read before. It felt just like an appetizer rather than the whole meal. Nevertheless, it was pretty nice and well written. ( )

Book description
The story follows Enn, a shy boy whom the more confident Vic encourages to just talk to girls. While at the party, Enn talks to three very nice but strange girls. As he focuses on "making a move" on the girls, it is revealed to the reader that the exchange students there are more interplanetary than foreign.
