great but short

I just wish it was longer. It was really good, but I used a whole credit on a short story.

Wonderful

How long did Gaiman deliberate over the colour of the white cord, I wonder? Did he deliberate at all?

Such a sweet story. The introduction, by Gaiman, gave the story more personality. So, it has personality plus.

I am glad that I paid the $14.95, even though it is only a short story.

Gaiman is a perfect wonder.

£1 a minute.

Loved the story and also a great performance. So why only 1 star ?
After the introduction was only left with a little over 20 minutes of story, priced at £17.99 that is nearly £1 a minute.
Message to Audible.....Everyone is wearing a mask right now but not the highwayman type.

great story but gaiman does talk alot!

really enjoyed the performance but author introduction goes on too long. If it had been at the end of the recording then I would have found it more useful, but as it's at the top I had to skip large parts of it to avoid Neil giving away the plot!

A very short, whimsical and charmingly heartfelt story

Neil Gaiman introduces a whimsical, heartfelt story that ties to his relationships with the elderly matrons of his life and what it would be like if, as an old person, you were given the chance to be young again.
This is a simplistic story that was clearly designed as a new age fairy tale with classical elements from tales of chivalry, but as with the Sleeper and the Spindle, this story is introduced with a personal anecdote and background segment by the author himself.
This is a short and sweet story that is under 40 minutes, so one to be enjoyed in the span of an afternoon walk.
