Publisher's Summary

“Sam was brushing her hair when the girl in the mirror put down the hairbrush, smiled, and said, "We don't love you anymore." So began the Twitter Audio project, with a dazzling first line penned by New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman. What followed was an epic tale of imaginary lands, magical objects, haunting melodies, plucky sidekicks, menacing villains, and much more.

From mystical blue roses to enchanted mirrors to pesky puppets, this classic fable was born from the collective creativity of more than one hundred contributors via the social network Twitter.com in a groundbreaking literary experiment. Together, virtual strangers crafted a rollicking story of a young girl’s journey with love, forgiveness, and acceptance.

    Story
    "Simple and light - suitable for a young audience"
    Would you try another book written by Neil Gaiman and The Twitterverse or narrated by Katherine Kellgren?

    Definitely - enjoyed the narration style and while the story was more suitable to a young audience it was well written and an easy listen


    If you’ve listened to books by Neil Gaiman and The Twitterverse before, how does this one compare?

    Average . Enjoyed other books by Neil Gaiman much better.


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favourite?

    The Badger


    Was Hearts, Keys, and Puppetry worth the listening time?

    Yes. Wasn't the best and most stimulating thing I've listened to but was pleasant enough.


    Any additional comments?

    Probably a good book for female Tweens

    Story
    "Failed experiment"

    I utterly love Neil Gaimsn, so I'm going to pretend this never happened. Even with the incomparable Kayherine Kellgren as narrator, this is almost unlistenable. It's a hot mess of loose ends and inconsistencies desperately patched together with cliches and compromise. The impression left is that Gaiman's Twitter followers came up with ideas that were either stupid or obvious, and didn't listen to each other, and it was left to Gaiman to try and force it all together. At least, I sincerely hope so.

    Story
    "Loved it!"

    I loved this story! This was a neat little fairytale retold at least that’s what it felt like to me. It has shades of Alice in Wonderland in fact there is a cute little epilogue I enjoyed too. I don’t want to say too much since it is a short story I don’t want to give anything away to detract you from enjoying this one!

    I must say that I am a Neil Gaiman fan and a Katherine Kellgren fan but I think even if I wasn’t I would have enjoyed this story!

    This audiobook is only an hour and forty-five minutes long and well worth the $1.95 audible is charging.

    Story
    "Wimsical... sort of."

    This story kept me guessing, and was fun to listen to. I loved the lilting voice of the performer, and Neil Gaiman has been my favorite author for years. It was fun to see how the story changed each time something new came up, but it didn't read like a role-playing game the way it could have. I would love to see the book in a picture-book format, if it isn't already.

    "Neil Gaiman Never Fails"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hearts, Keys, and Puppetry to be better than the print version?

    Never read the book but I can imagine it would be about the same.


    Any additional comments?

    This is just another story by Neil Gaiman that was pure enjoyment! It was interesting to know that he used Twitter posts to construct this story.
