I really gave this a try, due to a long car journey. I realized I would once have loved all the coolness of this, the cool violence, the cool mythology/sociology cynicism - and it made me so happy to have grown out of it.
The narration was so good, I wanted to listen to more stories read by the readers. Big Neil Gaiman fan and this book was solid. Very dreamy: landscapes, mystery, the supernatural, mythology... A little bit of everything and you're sucked in. I wish there was a follow up.
Mr. Gaiman's assembled ensemble ambled through my brain for a few days.
They left a mess of muddy footprints, blood stains, & shattered illusions. Not to mention a few more voices to carry around in my skull.
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.
