I read and enjoy most books by Neil Gaiman. This one was no exception. A working knowledge of European (and a bit of Russian) mythology would help but isn't 100% necessary. After all, the main character's working knowledge of mythology seems almost non-existant. You'll just learn as he does.

If you do like it, try his "Neverwhere" and "Stardust". The last one is also available as a graphic noval illustrated beautifully by Charles Vess. "Neverwhere" is a modern setting; "Stardust" is a sort of old English (perhaps Victorian, more currently than Elizabethian tho)setting with a tie to the land of the Fairies, a la Lord Dunsany.
