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.
Never read the print. But Gaiman writes in a very visual and mental fashion. Kind of how Stephen King is one of the most skilled visual writiers. Niel is one of the most skilled mental/emotional writers. You feel like a back seat passenger in side their head. You fear what they fear, you feel what they feel.
None. Niel is a one of a kind writer who never plagiarizes.
so hard to choose, everyone was so creepy and discomforting in their own way
The Girl who Believed In Me.
Solid Job. As Always. Wasnt my favorite cause im not too into horror esk stuff.. and this book got very disgusting and kind of shook me with its inappropriate nature. Really wish i could forget one of the scenes outside the window to the study..
I know there are soooo many of his fans. My own literature daughter loves Gaiman. For that reason I will try another of his books. The only reason I continued with this audiobook is because I was driving.
I am looking for something new, I haven't found very many good books lately. Thinking about going to podcasts.
He is a good story teller. It was like me telling a story to my kids. It wasn't a story to become part of or get enveloped in. The characters didn't come to life. Partly because of Gaiman's not convincing performance of the females.
Yes, I am sure it is my lack of .............. whatever.
It was a scarey story for kids.
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
I enjoyed this story as a trip down memory lane. I don't believe any other person could narrate this with the same skill. I have felt like my imagination grew during this audio book and I feel so much more in awe of the world around me.
I want to write. I want to explore. I want to picnic in fairy rings. Such joy of being a big kid.
This story is not what I was expecting. But was delightfully imaginative and enchanting. Being narrated by the author allows the story to come alive exactly as it was intended to when written.
I guess this story is a little too whimsical and magical for my taste. The descriptions are amazing and create vivid images for the reader which is why it's hard for me to come up with a fair rating. The author obviously has a vivid imagination and based on other reviews it's a wonderful story. I can't not recommend it… I think each reader has to decide for themselves whether it's something they love or not.
