The story was very entertaining and the full cast narration was excellent. Typical magical storytelling from Neil, well written and well delivered.
This is a great book I've read twice already. Listening to the full cast version brought some depth to the characters that I'm glad to have experienced. Highly recommend listening to it!
A wonderful weaving of folklore myth and fate. The main character is a shadow and a fool, walking his way through story and con and I was hopelessly caught up in the narrative.
this is simply a great book with some added extras like more book,great voice acting ,and notes from the author. buy this and thank me later.
This is a book that was hyped up by many of my friends. I was scared to read it for a long time because I feared that it would not live up to the praise that was heaped upon it. I'm glad I got this book.
The story is a weaving tale; part adventure, part horror, and part mythology. Shadow is your classic Everyman, so it is easy to get enveloped in the story and let it take you where it will.
The full cast production was very well done and fun to listen to. It helped with the drama and suspense and pulled me in from the start.
Listen to all kinds, but mostly enjoy witty light-hearted entertaining reads. Stay away from romance novels & books with heavy violence.
3 Stars - average. It was good 1 time read for me, but I can't say I would ever listen to it again. It had lots of rave reviews so probably just not my kind of book. I think Neil Gaiman is just not for me because The Ocean at the End of the Lane wasn't my kind of listen either. The writing was good it just didn't keep my attention for about 1/4 of the book I tuned out. Some bad language and the beginning has one section that you probably wouldn't want kids to overhear, but that is about it as far as kids in the car.
This book was strangely hypnotic. I normally listen to audio books at work, but this one was difficult. I caught myself stopping everything I was doing just to listen. You really need to pay attention. I feel like this is one of those books I could read or listen to over and over again, and catch something new each time.
