Some writers should NEVER read for their own audiobooks. Neil Gaiman is NOT one of those, thankfully. While a couple of these stories aren't what I would call Neil's usual quality, the fact that he reads them makes them worthwhile to listen to.Some of the music detracts rather then enhances the stories. One track however is music with a gem of a story at the end. I'll leave you to discover which one on your own.If you love Gaiman I strongly recommend this for two of the short stories alone. Troll Bridge and the White Road are two short stories that will or have been in adult fairy tale anthologies. Listening to him read them, to me, was a bonus.
