Really a great example of what a controlled, tight writer can do: imagination meets skill; next thing you know, you are wholly engaged and sympathetic to a minotaur line chef. Amazing. The narrator was excellent. Had a great tone. I'm definintely going back to the Neil Gaiman stuff again.
I recommend this book to anyone willing to listen to me....it's that good.
The Minotaur, I found him to be complex. So many years of existence rolled into one contemporary real life situation.
Again, the Minotaur. The performance was excellent. Very nuanced. I felt as though I could find this character working at one of the restaurants in my small town.
Haven't given it any thought.
My husband and I listened to this book on our trip home, from Nashville, TN to Darlington, MD. It was all so oddly fitting...which to me is a good thing.
This is a very well done production. I think this series was a wonderful idea.
So worthy of an audio version.
Enjoyed this story very much! very detailed and almost picturesque. A sensitive description of the relationship of a modern minotaur and his world around him. Loved it. Read it. Absolutely beautifully written.
Good book on so many levels. It's an interesting world, sympathetic characters, true art, plus great laughs.
How did Holter Graham narrate this tale without bursting out laughing every few seconds. The story was so so for me, although the idea was quite original, but the narration was awesome!!!
I enjoy reading many books genres. But I love listening to fantasy books.
I really enjoyed the Minotaur. His character was unique and compelling and real. The narrator was perfect for the story. I would highly recommend this book, even to non-scifi readers.
I wasn't sure what to expect with this story. I enjoy Neil Gaiman, so I bought this on his recommendation. The story is told from an unusual perspective, the Minotaur's. It should seem odd or forced, but it just works so very well. The narrator does an outstanding job of bringing the animal-man to life. Listening was enjoyably addictive, well worth the credit.
I liked the story but I wished something happend. I think I would have preferd the older Menitor, not the one worn down by time.
Not much of a story, rather pointless. Sorry I listened to it. The best thing about the whole experience was the narrator, he did the best he could with the little he had to work with.
