I just finished read What Would Walt Do?: An Insider's Story About the Design and Construction of Walt Disney World by D. M. Miller. I went in expecting something like Building a Better Mouse: The Story of the Electronic Imagineers Who Designed EPCOT . Miller never worked for Disney, but a firm hired by Disney to do soil and concrete testing. He starts out and ends trying to make some point about "What would Walt do?" not being asked enough after Roy died, resulting in the abandonment of EPCOT. That is never really developed and instead it is just his memoirs about the time. It was sort of like the guy sat down, started typing, and just had it published. A proofread would have caught a few grammatical errors. Overall, it is a nice read, but nothing really for the Disney fan to get excited about.
Its called "Lady Killer" and I cant remember who its by
"I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. "Groucho Marx
If you know Neil’s work you can always expect a strange trip blending the modern with the mythic. In this case the main character “Shadow” is released from jail and gets a job for a “Mr. Wednesday” who turns out to be Odin the old god. It seems that there is some culture clash between the old gods and the new American gods and an epic battle is on the horizon. One of the interesting features of this story is that it doesn’t take place in large cities, but along the back roads and among roadside tourist attractions.
If you like Neil Gaiman’s work this novel is a must being one of his best. If you don’t know his work this is a good place to start.
Final note: This is NOT a kids book many adult subjects are covered in the novel.
