If I am to pick my favorite of all Gaiman's works, The Graveyard Book would be it. This one might be catered to the kids, but adults can appreciate this too.
And with Gaiman doing the narration, it's just perfect!
I'm a fan of the book series and have read it a lot of times now.
I'm not rating this a 3 based on the story because the story hasn't changed, it will always be good. However, I feel the narration came off as monotonous, it made me sleepy instead of excited or even interested. I think she failed to "animate" the characters properly.
Still a "hear" for those Twilight fans out there who can't get enough of the series but can't keep on reading it over and over. Nice to listen to if you're alone driving or just plain stuck in traffic.
I always thought of Betsy Taylor funny but slightly irritating in the book series.
This is the first audible I've downloaded from the series, and I have to say reading and hearing are two entirely different processes. Thanks to the narrator's funny take on the characters, it became more hilarious and quite addictive to listen to.
Thumbs up on this one.
