    For eons, Earth has been under observation by the Firstborn, beings almost as old as the universe itself. The Firstborn are unknown to humankind - until they act. In an instant, Earth is carved up and reassembled like a huge jigsaw puzzle. Suddenly the planet and every living thing on it no longer exist in a single timeline.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Wonderful combination of the two author's ideas and visions


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Viewing history through modern eyes - as if you had to live through it - the challenge was to make the ending believable


    Did Time's Eye inspire you to do anything?

    Look to more jointly authored books

    When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard? Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.

    If you could sum up The Graveyard Book in three words, what would they be?

    Fun Gaiman mythology


    What did you like best about this story?

    I have heard the author read some of this live and this reading was wonderful. Gaiman's characters have insight and a humanity that is easy to identify with - regardless of the strange situations in which they find themselves...


    What three words best describe Neil Gaiman’s voice?

    Gentle Inviting Warm

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This second book was the first I read as a lad and intrigued me with the reality of the impact of outrageous science from long lost civilisations on a mechanistic society, cultural sensitivity to indigenous locals who weren't quite as savage as they appeared and a love of animal companions.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Storm whose grief from the loss of his history and family is a very believable motivation for the action.

    If you could sum up Doctor Who in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, intriguing


    Would you recommend Doctor Who to your friends? Why or why not?

    Good series - very like the TV shows each episode is well contained, completely different, but the linking plot kept me wanting to come back for the next episode...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No - can listen to these on the train and look forward to completing the story on the way home
