Mother of twins. No time to read, started listening to books 'n changing diapers at the same time. Been in love with audible ever since
the climax had me huddled under the blankets for safety.
I liked this book very much.
I am not sure what I can say other than I can not wait to share this with my children. We have listened and re-listened to the Graveyard Book countless times, and I am sure this will go into our re-listen rotation as well. Lovely lessons and lovely voice,both as a writer and reader. Thank you, thank you!!!
I expected bigger more far reaching adventure. And what started the bad turn of events (opal miner?) wasn't explained as the motivation satisfactorily.
Great stuff, echoes of coraline, but don't let that dissuade you. It's a great story, and, as an aside has some of the best food descriptions I've ever heard.
I really didn't know what to think as I started it but was taken off guard by the flow and beauty of thought. He should read everything lol!! Not enough superlatives to say wahoo loud enough! Thank you Mr Gaiman☺️
Hi, I am an avid reader and audiobook listener with diverse tastes in books. I enjoy sets of books by subject or series.
A difficult to describe book, this book has a story wrapped in a story. There is adventure and fantasy and childhood. I enjoyed listening to the book and found the story entertaining but am left with the vague feeling that something is missing from the story, like the difference between a good ghost story and a random haunting.
The content of this book is just strange and meaningless.
Couldn't come close to finishing it.
I want to because he does get good reviews, but hesitate to spend the money.
Any book should be at its best with its author as narrator. Just didn't like this one.
