Publisher's Summary

You ask me if I can forgive myself? I can forgive myself....

And so begins The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains, a haunting story of family, the otherworld, and a search for hidden treasure. This audiobook is brought to vivid life by the characters and landscape of Gaiman’s award-winning story. In this volume, the talents and vision of two great creative geniuses come together in a glorious explosion of colour and shadow, memory and regret, vengeance and, ultimately, love....for many things. For where I left him. For what I did.

    "Wonderful short story"

    I started listening to this in the middle of a rainy blustery night whilst camping in pembrokeshire. I recommend you also listen to it on a cold wet day. though infront of a fire.
    the music really adds to the story. and I always live listening to Neil Gaiman read. he reads beautifully.

    Story
    "SHORT BUT USUAL GAIMAN QUALITY"

    Neil Gaiman has set expectations very high for everything he writes, anything that falls short of brilliant will be a let down.
    This book was not a let down, it had the interesting characters and storyline which keeps you wanting more. The length makes it more like a short story than something that you can lose yourself in, and I found myself aware that the story was drawing to a conclusion from very early into it.
    This is a must for Gaiman fans and a good introduction for those seeing if they would enjoy his work.

    Story
    "Could of been perfect"

    I love Neil Gaiman's stories and I love them even more when he narrates them but this one just didn't work for me the accompanying music was just a bit too loud sometimes jarred with Neil's voice. Sorry Neil... I did like the story though quite creepy.

    "Love Neil but far too short for what it cost!"

    Classic Gaimen folklore but just feels like it's the first chapter. Great rythm and music though!

    "Superb"

    I saw Neil Gaiman perform this live on stage in London with the Four Play String Quartet providing the music, and was thrilled to discover that this is the same version - just brilliant!

    "Classic Gaiman!"

    Brilliant as always. You cannot help but get carried away by the story. The music is also very fitting and it lifts the experience to a different level.
