Although Neil Gaimon is one of my favourite authors, Fragile Things was not one of my favourite audiobooks. Unfortunately, I couldn't keep track of where one story ended and another began. There were no obvious breaks and I just kept getting lost. I eventually gave up trying to listen and bought the book in paper.

Hard stories to listen to. They're packed with info for one thing. And there aren't good breaks between stories. I often wondered if I was still on the previous story or a new one.
Still, there are some excellent stories in here, and I thoroughly enjoyed some. The author also has an excellent voice, which was a pleasure to listen too.

Neil Gaiman is an amazing author, and these short stories show the vast versatility of his writing. Stories of the supernatural, the weird and the wicked, I defy anyone to not enjoy this collection. For similar entertainment, check out Joe Hill's '20th Century Ghosts'.

I have loved Neil's work for many many years and this doesn't disappoint. Strange tales some unknown and some that ring bells but have unexpected endings.
This is short stories for grown ups. Smart intelligent some time funny often strange but always good.
Word of warning if you are listing to this rather than reading it I would suggest NOT falling asleep whilst you listen as you end up with some very strange dreams!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

I love the sound of Neil Gaiman's voice. Which probably sounds bias but his elocution of the English language is magic. He’s characters in each story sound so believable. This book is easy to get listen to as most stories are short so you can pick it up easily where ever you left off. Pure adult fairytales truly great entertainment.
