I buy very very few audiobooks. I almost never listen to them more than once and why pay several times the paperback price for something you won't enjoy again and again?. It's much cheaper to simply borrow them from the library, listen to them, then return them. Win-win situation: I enjoy the book, and save anywhere from 15-40 dollars by not purchasing the audio.
HOWEVER: The terrific combination of Neil Gaiman's writing - alternately funny and terrifying but always riveting - and Lenny Henry's spot-on delivery, make this an audiobook well worth owning. Neil Gaiman is one of the finest writers out there and we have never been disappointed. Lenny Henry has been a favorite of ours since we became addicted to his TV series Chef!, and he *is* Charlie Nancy to me now. I have listened to it at least twice now and fully expect my whole family to enjoy it for years to come.
