This is the best best audiobook I've listened so far because of Gaiman's performance. So touching, precise and well delivered.
It'd say Ocean is a simpler version of American Gods but in the sense of peaking behind the curtain again and showing things there are and things that can be a whole lot more than we see. It also brings that clash of worlds feeling constant in Gaiman's work in such a peculiar and touching way that it's impossible not to fall in love with.
Mixing memories and make belief, Gaiman narrates trivial moments of a young boy's life with precision and truthfulness. When the protagonist has to make a run for his life, and down is the only possibility, you cheer for him, you want to go in and help him climb down, you share his fears and hopes. It's very intense. So is the prologue that ties it all together and changes the perspective of the whole story, specially if you wisely decided NOT TO read the sinopses.
Yes, I wish I could have listened it all non-stop.
Great sound quality, working well on external speakers and several types of headphones. Good editing.
