LOVED it. Listened until 2am last night, usually I'm asleep by midnight! Finished the book first thing this morning. So good :)
"Amazing! Loved it!"
Listened to this after it was recommended by Tim Ferriss. I listened to it every day in the car to and from work. Really great story, normally I prefer non fiction but I can't recommend this enough.
"The best of Neil Gaiman"
I love this book so much, I regularly listen to this with my kids.
It is bitter sweet and beautiful all at the same time
He's my favorite narrator of their own stories. Sometimes the authors narrating their own stories can be really dry and off putting. However Neil is perfect, characterisations, inflections and his own little humour is narrated perfectly
The end is so sad and beautiful, it chokes me up everytime
"Captivating and witty"
A joy to listen too - well drawn characters and wonderful narration - drawn into the world of the graveyard and the characters- wonderful
Great story, well narrated. I applaud the author for not only writing the novel but for his superb narration.
"the greatest book ever"
I enjoyed the voices Neil gaimen gave to the characters interesting and very mysterious.loved it
"brilliant and captivating,"
could not stop listening to this. keeps you on tenterhooks all the way through.
"Great little ghost story"
I'm a teacher and our school was lucky enough to receive some free copies of this book through the Book Trust last year. I finally got round to reading it and was really impressed.
If you don't appreciate scary books, don't be put off by the first chapter - the remainder of the book is sometimes action-packed, sometimes sentimental, sometimes funny, but never as terrifying. A well-written book which probably resembles 'Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone' more closely than anything else. If recommended it for readers from 10 to adult. A thoroughly enjoyable read!
An incredible book well read. I am so sad it is over. I know I will listen to it again.
"Beautiful story, told wonderfully by the author."
A great tale, told with a soft voice. Nobody Owens lives an unusual life amongst the dead. With the threat of his own death hanging over his head he must find his way in life, and find a way to live longer.
