"[Gaiman is] more than up to the task of reading his work with great style....He performs as a consummate storyteller." (Publishers Weekly)
Easy to listen to, understand, and follow. Wonderful short story containing great imagery. As always, Mr Gaiman brings imagination to the forefront. making silliness an "it could happen moment".
I never tire of listening to Neil Gaiman read his books. He had me giggling through this book - a short story with a bit of twisted humor.
everything, the whole package.
i love to listen to to neil reading. the timing pauses between the words make a lot of sense and really give the listener a lot of space to imagine this lovable scenario.
his voice, his pauses, very pleasant and calming and wise and humorous and witty.
absolutely. it bleu me away with its simplicity and brilliant original story.
i am just crazy about it.
