The story is good, the characters are interesting. The continuity of the pace of the story is a bit inconsistent. Very readable...listenable.
Stunningly imaginative fantastical fiction! Completely consuming. The author's writing and imagination make for a full-spectrum painting of here/there, then/now, seen/unseen. I am disappointed that I am finished listening. It feels like I luxuriated in full color and now have to return to black and white. I guess the author suggests that I just need to look a little more closely. Wonderful!
Neil Gaiman writes the way Michael Jordan plays basketball. Effortlessly and skillful with sudden displays of brilliance that leave a reader or listener in this case simply in awe. With the talented George Guidall telling the tale there is no more that that needs to be done to make this one a keeper. I would highly recommend this book to any and all. I have long been a fan of Mr. Gaiman from his comic books, but I find that his writing is even more entertaining and plan to listen to all his works in the future.
A hodgepodge of fragmentary stories slapped together with no consistency of character or plot.
This is the Hamlet 2 of novels.
Guidall was great as usual.
I loved this book to pieces. Not since The Dark Tower has a book grabbed me like this. Read this book!
Alright Neil Gaiman is brillant however I found myself enjoying this book less then some of his others. I much prefered Anasazi boys although this had wonderful parts in it and I was facenated most of the time, however the book seemed to go on and on for me, it wasn't the length of the book rather I would forget where exactly I was in the plot, the man in this book spends time in prison and although facenating it doesn't seem to hold the same riviting aspect of other Neil Gaiman books.
This is a gifted Author, but he never explains anything. His worlds and magic systems are left 90% unexplained, which if you are a logical sci-fi fan will drive you crazy.
This book is not a bad read, but it's definately not anywhere near the realm of Neil Stephenson, Louis McMaster Bujold, or Orson Scott Card works which are "epic" in their genre.
This was a wonderful read and though more than 20 hours was still too short. I wanted to know more. Getting to know the characters and the mysteries and plots deep seated in the story was easy most times but at times I had to go back to put 2 and 2 together. I will read it again and recommend it to others.
Immigration lawyer in Kansas City. I like Character driven dramas, fantasy (monsters, magic and witches oh my!) and coming of age stories. Favs include: The Book Thief, The Game of Throne series, Harry Potter Series, Dresden Files, Nightside series, anything by Neil Gaimen, 100 Years of Solitude.
I thought the concept of this book war really interesting. That the gods of old and new all live among us. The narrator was excellent and I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a little fantasy.
