I enjoyed this a lot. It wasn't until I was half way through that I realised it is a story for youths, but it is still a rollicking tale and well read.
I was very taken with the story of this wonderful book, which can be read and heard by anyone - teenager or grown-up alike. The entire book is very sweet and almost naive, but at the same time, there are both scary characters and children as heroes. The main character, Nobody Owens, is very innocent but at the same time strong and open to all the things. I highly recommend this book - I heard it in one fell swoop and could not bear to press pause. The author is very talented, painting pictures with every word!
The characters don’t change during the book but the solution mystery is nice.
Very well read, maybe it contributed to the reason I finished it.
A delightful book, and a wonderful performance by the author. I really cannot recommend it enough.
A fantastic story with lovely detailed characters, full of surprises. That Neil Gaiman himself narrates the story is definitely a bonus. Loved it and could not stop listening till the end
This was my first adult audio book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I also really liked the narrator, what a surprise that it was the author himself. There are few authors that could pull that off. I hope he narrates other author's books and more of his own. The story was interesting, flowed well and kept me listening.
One of the greatest things about this book is that Neil Gaiman does the narration. There is nothing better than hearing an author read his or her own work. The story is good fun, nothing complex. Each chapter is a mini story that fits into the overall story line making it easy to listen to over time - you can finish a chapter then come back a few days later and not forget where you're up to in the story. It's a children's book, which I didn't realise until after purchase, and listening to it before going to sleep reminded me of when I was young and my parents would read to us kids one chapter of a book before bed. Worth the credit if you're after something light and fun.
I just wish the story would go on .... thoroughly enjoyed the narrator and story line. Definitely made for teenagers, but I enjoyed it nonetheless
