I downloaded this audiobook for free from audible some time ago and never listed to it before today for some reason. The narration is wonderful. I could listen to Neil Gaiman talk all day long. He is the perfect narrator for this story since he wrote it and knows his vision of how it should be read. Despite the wonderful narration, I found that the story was no more than mediocre. I suspect that one of the reasons that I did not fall in love with this story was partially because I have never read anything by H.P. Lovecraft.
The story is quite short. In fact it was much shorter than I had expected because a large portion of my audible download was a preview for [b:The Ocean at the End of the Lane|15783514|The Ocean at the End of the Lane|Neil Gaiman|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1351914778s/15783514.jpg|21500681].
