Critic Reviews

"Gaiman has a deft touch for surprise and inventiveness, and there are inspired moments." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Gaiman again proves himself a perverse romantic, heir not only to Poe and Baudelaire but to the breathless Pre-Raphaelites....The collection also boasts lush prose...and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories. Expect the unexpected. Then savor the luscious chills." ( Kirkus)

Marvelous adventures

I love the sound of Neil Gaiman's voice. Which probably sounds bias but his elocution of the English language is magic. He’s characters in each story sound so believable. This book is easy to get listen to as most stories are short so you can pick it up easily where ever you left off. Pure adult fairytales truly great entertainment.

It lost me...

I normally really enjoy anything Neil Gaiman writes, but I found these stories to be like the random thoughts that run through your head as you're trying to fall asleep. There was really nothing of substance in them, not for me at least.
