I purchased this book because it popped up as a recommended read. The synopsis led me to believe that it was an ordinary story, perhaps a coming-of-age story, or perhaps the tale of a man revisiting his childhood past. When the tale started to spin off the rails into a supernatural story, it lost me. At times the book seemed more interested in making sweeping supernatural commentary on perception of reality than in actually telling a cohesive story. The plot was too meandering, The character development worth thin, and nothing truly pulled me forward other than a general desire to just finish the book. There were a few nice pieces of imagery but on the whole this one just didn't grab me
Great story & performance. If in the fence, get this. You won't be disappointed. Gaiman delivers fiction with suspense, mystery, horror, drama & fantasy all together.
Just to listen to Neil's voice then yes.
I enjoyed the Grandmother who loved the full moon.
The story stayed with me and I found myself thinking about it for a long time after and I enjoyed it. But it was Neil Gaiman's voice that is addictive.
The story was gripping and emotionally draining at times and I loved every second of it. My only complaint is that the ended felt too early, like we were hitting a turning point and another connected adventure would begin. Then it ends. Still, well worth the price of admission.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story was so different and new. The narration was great. I definitely recommend it. I'm looking forward to more by Neil Gaman.
