    Story
    (2111)

    Returning to the territory he so brilliantly explored in his masterful New York Times best seller American Gods, the incomparable Neil Gaiman offers up a work of dazzling ingenuity, a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth that is at once startling, terrifying, exhilarating, and fiercely funny, a true wonder of a novel that confirms Stephen King's glowing assessment of the author as "a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him."

    A. Hawley says: "Beautifully narrated"
    "Gaiman + Henry = Magic"
    Overall

    This is my favorite of Gaiman's books, but what makes this recording truly exceptional is the narrator, Lenny Henry (Chef). His timing and tone capture the essence of characters in the book, from the whining Fat Charlie to the booming Mr. Anansi to the cluck-cluck-cluck of the elderly Carribean ladies. It is difficult to hit "pause" on this audiobook!

    Betrayed by her lady-in-waiting, a beautiful young princess is put to work tending geese while the devious maid marries the handsome prince. Only the old king suspects the truth - but how can even he possibly know for certain?

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, because my children love the story


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jenny Day???s performances?

    Not for children's books. Her accents are not very good.


    Any additional comments?

    The audio quality in this performance is garbled.
