Alive, Wonder, Peaceable
The Sandman, or Dresden files. The Sandman because of the images of creations that are just like us but so much more, and yet not. Dresden files for the tickling this book does to my brain as it goads me to, not just imagine, but to believe in it. I guess they both do that to me.
I listened to American Gods and he only did the coming to America parts. I wish he had done the whole thing as I did not like the guy who did most of the reading.
It made me cry, but it made me quite as well. I want so bad for him to write and write and write... possibly tell I can here or read no more. The worlds he has put me in leave me not just longing for more, but actually seeing more in the world around me. Does that make since?
Thank you Neil. Your books fill up my thoughts and dreams. They will for the rest of my life.
Listen To It!

Walking through the house going to bed
It's the perfect title, says exactly enough about the subject.
Listening to Neil Gaiman reading his book to me (yes, he was reading it to me, personally) is one of the highs of my experiences with audio books. I had read the book previously but this was a much more intimate, storytelling, feeling of the book - something no-one should miss. I envy Amanda Palmer for having had Neil read it to her first of all.
I read, I write, I paint and enjoy photography. Is there supposed to be more?
This is one of those books that keeps you wondering what in the world is going on here, and yet you understand it on a level you can't quite put into words. I found that going back and forth between the book and the audio was disruptive in a world created from the ground up by the author, so I stuck with the book for most of the time. It goes by rather rapidly, but the strangeness that is more than real has stuck for a very long time.
one of the better books I've listened to for my book club. Thoroughly enjoyable, couldn't wait until the end
Delightful fantasy story with many unexpected twists.
Neil's performance was spot on.
Lettie Hemstock, as the heroine at the end of the story, I'd like to find out if she approved of the narrator's life. Was he worth saving?
Listen to book in one sitting driving back home from Philly. Very fun and creepy story.
First time listen to Neil Galman. Really enjoyed the book!
I bought this book based on the positive reviews but I didn't enjoy anything about it. I almost stopped listening. I waited to buy it on sale, I didn't want to use a credit because it's so short. The narrator had a pleasant voice.
Yes! Wonderful story, read wonderfully!
The view of a child about the world of adults. So insightful and sweet.
It was fantastic!

This is the best audiobook I have listened to. The combination of the wonderful story plus it being read by the actual author, I listened to the whole thing in a day.
I really liked Neil Gaimon's reading of his own book.
It is one of a kind.
I didn't have a favorite.
The world has more layers than you can see.
I really enjoyed the book. It made me feel like a child again.
I listen to audio books on my M-F 40 minute commute into Raleigh NC. I am the founder of The Shore Grief Center, a nonprofit.
I kept waiting for it to mature but I give up - it's not going to happen!
Yes if I knew what the genre was.
performance was okay, it's more the story that I'm disillusioned with.
I usually like fantasy in fiction. But this story was too vague and really I was sorry I wasted my time finishing the book. There is nothing to pull it together or give you insight into why the magic changed the mans life. I would stay away from the pond he calls an ocean. This little story does not fill an ocean.
