As an adult, a man returns to his childhood home and recalls a story which is so magical, so mysterious, so strange that it couldn’t possibly be true. I don’t want to recall any more of the plot here because I knew nothing going in and absolutely loved not knowing anything, and just taking the mysterious journey.
I listened to this as an audio book, read by Neil Gaiman, which I just loved. I’ve heard Gaiman on podcasts and in interviews, and listening to him read this story took me totally into this world. It felt real, and yet so unreal. I could listen to him all day. Having only recently read any of his works, I’m loving it.
