The Dark is a great book. It shows you how things we are afraid of can be nicer than we think.
What made the experience of listening to The Dark the most enjoyable?
I first found out about this because Neil Gaiman was narrating, and I enjoy his narration every time, but I have to say that what made the book the most enjoyable was the humor and the handling of the subject matter, the way that children were assumed to be competent, and able to handle themselves. Neil was a great narrator for this because his own work reflects these kinds of themes as well.
What did you like best about this story?
This was funny, a little tongue in cheek but in a way which shows children to be capable, competent, and in a way their own best friends.
Have you listened to any of Neil Gaiman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
YES. Tons of them. This is honestly one of my favorites, because I could tell Neil's and "Lemony"'s values are relatively in line so they worked together to create a great audio experience. Because of this I went on to listen to other Lemony books.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I don't want to give spoilers! But it was very imaginative.
Any additional comments?
After this I went on to read The Lump of Coal which I also highly recommend! I am not really a fan of his series work but the first book of the Unfortunate Events series is also very well done, as it won a Grammy. (Audiobooks are not usually up for Grammys!) It is a great production narrated by Tim Curry.
