This is the second audio book I have listened to via Scribd on the iOS app, while the app could use some work, the story and the narration were awesome. I now want to get the e-book so I can see the illustrations that go with the story. I've said it before and I'm saying it again.... Neil Gaiman is an amazing storyteller and after listening to this I want to go back and relisten to Neverwhere, Stardust, Ocean at the End of the Lane...pretty much all of his stories that he narrates. My review of this is short as is the story (but it still packs quite the punch), an evocative story of revenge and death with fabulous narration that is accompanied with a string quartet playing in the background.
This quote from the story as it really stood out to me
"Sometimes I think the truth is a place, In my mind, it is like a city: there can be a hundred roads, a thousand paths, that will all take you, eventually, to the same place. It does not matter where you come from. If you walk toward the truth, you will reach it, whatever path you take" ..................... "You are wrong. The truth is a cave in the black mountains. There is one way there, and one only, and the way is treacherous and hard, and if you choose the wrong path you will die alone, on the mountainside"
