This is the most surprising and touching book I've ever read.
I am a huge fan of Neil Gaiman's. Every book I read of his, I've liked more than the previous. I've loved his stories, how he pulls magic from seams you didn't even realize were there. I've loved his complex characters who spiral down their own emotional and thoughtful rabbit holes: Fat Charlie discovering his own strength. Bod growing up. The Ocean at the end of the Lane's protagonist making us question what's really happened or hasn't.
If there were ever a doubt that these (and all of his other) characters were real, this book will rid you of it. His fiction characters are as real as Lou Reed, Amanda Palmer, Tori Amos and Terry Pratchett.
This book is a gift. I want to read it again and again and again. I want to hug Neil Gaiman and thank him for, well, believing in the magic that is this world. I want him to know how touched I am. I want everyone who's thinking of listening to this audible recording to do so as soon as possible, but to also be cautious in their timing because there will be times you'll have to pull off the freeway because you're crying too hard to safely drive.
Listen to this book. Whoever you are, listen to it. Learn from it. And go make the world a better place like Neil Gaiman has.

Not a binge read, probably better to pick it up and read a little then come back to it again later. But, it's fantastic. I literally did laugh and cry.
