the full cast production allows you to "see" the experience of this dense, complex book in a different way. it's unique for the number of voices, although at some point in this 19+ hour experience, it is easier to hear some of the narrators taking multiple parts. the ways of speaking, and the accents of the many characters were so well done. i especially loved the voices of shadow and wednesday.
i had already read the book, but my son pointed out to me that there was a 10th anniversary edition. when the audible book of it went on sale, i grabbed this one. it does take quite a bit of commitment to listen to such a long story, and keep it all straight, even with a previous reading. but it's rewarding. very much so.
wondering now if i should re-read the original book to see how it differs from the new edition. certainly it will all turn out the same way, although in neil gaiman's universe - maybe not!
i certainly will always remember shadow's journey, and the gods, people, and creatures he interacts with....there are so many memorable scenes. i just loved the parts narrated by neil himself, and hoped there would be even more of that. he's a great reader.
vintage still works!
the ending, where scrooge realises he is still alive and it is christmas morning.
i loved hearing the voices of orson wells and lionel barrymore.
it's well worth buying and listening to, i plan to listen again. it's wonderful. the voices have such character, and it's unique.
no, the print version is better, for me, and i would rather read it in an ebook edition. i hope that happens soon! however, not being able to
constantine, of course! the mysterious vampire who is an anomaly among vampires: a kind vampire, a vampire who is not evil.
to an extent, not all that well.
it brings chills at some points....
i would like to listen to an audiobook of this book with all the voices more accurately portrayed....i would like voices that sounded more male for the male voices, and a different voice for sunshine.
