I know this is probably blasphemy, but it was hard for this story to keep my attention. The full cast took a bit getting use to, and sometimes the dialogue and descriptions stretched on so long my mind would drift. I had a hard time getting invested in any of the characters, maybe because Shadow was so apathetic and placid the whole time. I can see why people would possibly really like this book, it just wasn't for me.
It's truly an amazing book... The story, the cast...AND the inclusion of the authors voice reading the interludes and preface/postscript. I'd listen to this over And over! Definilyy in the top of all the books I've ever listened to.
Oh gosh, how can I choose?
I liked Wednesday but I also loved hearing Neil gaimans voice as well.
Loved it! Definitely there was laughter and a lot of deep thinking.
This audiobook ranks toward the top of the audible books I've purchased. The content of the book was pretty good, the writing style was great, and the narration was spectacular. It kept my interest the entire time.
Lover of sci-fi, dystopia, and historical fiction. I travel often and listen to audiobooks while driving long hours
My wife and I listened to this book during a very long drive and we fell in love with Gaiman's story and the characters. This was one of the few audiobooks that we have finished where we both felt completely satisfied at the end of the story. The narration was fantastic as well and we both really appreciated that the author joined in with the cast to tell some of the story. This is the level by which all other audiobooks will be judged. I cannot recommend enough.
I found myself lost at times and just when I thought I found myself I would be struggling again. It did help that I was familiar with Anunci and some of the other God's and Goddesses beforehand.
liked it well enough but it didn't draw me in; I'll probably always remember Mr. Wednesday, so that says something about the story
It is one of those books that makes having the demands of life interrupting your "reading" completely annoying! The voices of the cast, the timing, once again perfectly cast and superb. I love that by following through every loose end is tied up at the end.
