Galman words in this book do not sound like Gaiman.
That being said, fast as the pacing is in terms of character, I was pleasantly surprised just how well written and well plotted the book’s action sequences are, especially considering that even though Joey is said to have an unusually high aptitude for Walking between worlds he has no special powers himself, and so his great escapes tend to happen due to a combination of quick thinking and luck which is far more satisfying reading than sudden bursts of random powerfulness.
