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 to listen to

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.
