Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors. His imagination is amazing. That being said, this was not to my liking. I tried to enjoy it. Based on a review that said it started out slow but got better in time I kept at it thinking that it was going to get interesting at any moment, it never happened for me. It was too slow and disjointed. I never connected to the characters because they never developed true relationships with each other. I understand that some people feel this is a masterpiece, but for me fell flat.
I will say that the production and the performances were well done.
when an author reaches a zenith of storytelling, transcending simple fiction creating a form of word magick that brings it all to life, they create a work such as this. It is a quirky work, unique in how it unveils the rich fabric of the world the author weaves and brought to imaginative life by many vocal artist. Quite simply a masterwork of an audio book.
Absolutely love this book, and the full cast performance absolutely did it justice. Hearing parts read by Neil Gaiman was an added bonus.
Loved anansi, graveyard, and the short story book by Neil Gaiman. I am a Christian so this one was somewhat minorly offensive. Still a huge fan though and will read all his books no doubt. This book is long and often times very dull.
Had a lot of people tell me this is one of the best books out there. I thought it was slow, uneventful and plot less for most of the book. with that said, the author's ability to express the correct words to describe a situation or person or place is amazing and the full cast did a great job for the reading.
