  In their elegant black suits...
"There are four simple was for the observant to tell Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemar apart: first, Mr. Vandemar is two and a half heads taller than Mr. Croup; second, Mr. Croup has eyes of a faded china blue, while Mr. Vandemar's eyes are brown; third, while Mr. Vandemar fashioned the rings he wears on his right hand out of the skulls of four ravens, Mr. Croup has no obvious jewelery; fourth, Mr. Croup likes words, while Mr. Vandemar is always hungry. Also, they look nothing at all alike."

This is from "Neverwhere" by Neil Gaimen, the book i'm currently working on reading, and is most definatly my favorite part so far.

Also, I just finished reading the "Sandman" series he wrote. It was good enough to cause me to purposely stop reading because it was such a good story that I tried to prolong the time that it would take to finish it.

After "Neverwhere" is going to be "Blindness" by José Saramago. After that its the "Preacher" series by Garth Ennis, if I can get my hands on all of the issues.
