I do think the audio version is better then the printed version because the author himself narrates the book. I think this gives us a better insight into how the author visualized each character.
Lettie was my favorite character in the book because she was brave, creative, and insightful.
It was entertaining!! At first I was unaware if it was a fantasy type book, glad it wasn't!! Great read!!
seeing the story through the eye's of a seven year old!!
The author narrating it was the best because he brought the story to life in my opinion
Lettie Hempstock. Because she has been eleven years old for a very long time.
It's perfect. Very pleasant voice, and since he's the author, he knows exactly how to present his story to the listener.
The Hempstock Women; I can't really separate them, because they're essentially three aspects of the same character. They set the story in motion and see our hero through his dangerous journey.
Neil Gaiman contnues to animate the world with his stories.
Different, Joyful & Compelling
The "worm hole"
An excellent read, great way to spend an afternoon. Gaiman narration was, as usual, wonderful!
If I had known more about the book, I likely wouldn't have purchased it. It was alright but I found it hard to follow at times.
I didn't care for the ending. I expected more of a wrap up of how it started.
I found him a little hard to listen to and hard to get interested in the characters.
I suppose some type of fantasy...a TV movie, possibly. I likely wouldn't watch it.
Yes, it's lovely that Neil Gaiman himself was the reader!
All of it, the whole story was great all around! Classic Neil Gaiman if you're a fan :-)
Lettie was one of my favorites...can't say anything since I don't want to give any spoilers :-)
Yes, and it's actually a short book so you get through it very quickly due to the great story line and reading!
I found this mystical and fun. I love that he narrates his own books, that makes it special. I feel like I could sit down and have a cup of tea with him.
It was hard to put this down! I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. It really was a great fairy tale story for adults.
Oh, I am afraid I am becoming a Neil Gaiman groupie! I am amazed at his ability to create a realistic portrayal of a fantasy world, through the eyes of a seven-year old boy. The unbelievable story becomes understandable in the simplistic wording of a child's perspective.
I adore Lettie Hemstock and her mother and grandmother. What wonderful characters! Gaiman said the Hemstocks had been with him for many years, so I hope we will see them again.
Yes, though I didn't allow myself to do that, as I wanted to savor it and enjoy the story as long as I could. It's kind of like a rich, dark chocolate; if you eat it all in one setting, you won't enjoy it as much.
The story is so intriguing and Gaiman's reading is brilliant, as ever.
