It was an OK, entertaining story but not the great read everyone else is raving about. Middle of the pack at best.
Neil Gaiman at his masterful best - both as author and narrator.
May be a little intense for children under 12, but enjoyable for anyone over that age. Themes of love, redemption, courage, and loyalty.
As author and narrator, Mr. Gaiman does an outstanding job. This is the second book of his that I have listened to and he has become one of my favorite authors.
Don't know why everybody else got excited about it. It's a very simple story - a boy with some supernatral talent, and then a simple plot. That's all. The narrator is great though.
