Publisher's Summary

You ask me if I can forgive myself? I can forgive myself....
And so begins The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains, a haunting story of family, the otherworld, and a search for hidden treasure. This audiobook is brought to vivid life by the characters and landscape of Gaiman’s award-winning story. In this volume, the talents and vision of two great creative geniuses come together in a glorious explosion of colour and shadow, memory and regret, vengeance and, ultimately, love....for many things. For where I left him. For what I did.

Wonderful short story

I started listening to this in the middle of a rainy blustery night whilst camping in pembrokeshire. I recommend you also listen to it on a cold wet day. though infront of a fire.
the music really adds to the story. and I always live listening to Neil Gaiman read. he reads beautifully.

Neil Gaiman has set expectations very high for everything he writes, anything that falls short of brilliant will be a let down.
This book was not a let down, it had the interesting characters and storyline which keeps you wanting more. The length makes it more like a short story than something that you can lose yourself in, and I found myself aware that the story was drawing to a conclusion from very early into it.
This is a must for Gaiman fans and a good introduction for those seeing if they would enjoy his work.

Loved the story, found the music intrusive

What a fantastic tale - I loved this story, so immersive and beautifully written. But the music ruined this audio book for me - I found it intrusive and distracting, too loud against the reading, and quite jarring at times. I wish there was a version without it :/
