This was by far my favorite reading so far. Only the author could have pulled this off - the inflections and little things make all the difference. Wonderful experience on my walks.
The authors voicing of Mr. Crup and Mr. Van de Mar - so deliciously bad.
His passion and knowledge of the characters - can't miss it.
Yes - but didn't - too much fun using it as a serial.
Buy it - it's worth it.
I liked the book and I like the author/narrator but his voice is so damn soothing and so damn comforting it was tough to listen to without nearly falling asleep! His voice is too good, but not in a great way. His narration through the short stories in American Gods was just about the right amount of time to listen to him, this was a little too much for me. It took me nearly a month to listen to this just for that reason.

This was good in the Gaiman style. Interesting story and good characters. I didn't find this nearly as engaging as the Ocean at the End of the Lane but maybe it was just me. I found the anti-hero just that, a weak, mean, little man of no substance or backbone. The performance, done by Gaiman was pretty good except that some producer though it appropriate to throw in bits of African (?) folk music at odd times. Not at the beginning of chapters or transitions, just for the hell of it, whenever. But not distracting enough not to recommend. It was worth the time, just not one of his best.
This story has such a unique aspect to it but....most bad books have a build up that never pans out but this one didn't even have that. Plot and characters were boring. Boring, boring book.
Neil Gaiman created the voice and personality of each character with such believability they came alive even tho imaginary. The story and its telling were captivating,
This was a fabulous listen. The author's narration truly brought this book to life. It is my second Neil Gaiman title. I will be shopping for more.
