So sad it was so short tho.

Who could deny Neil Gaiman? Fitting the pieces of the puzzles together and finally putting names on the characters at the end is so satisfying. This is definitely a nice twist to the popular fairy tale... or tales o v <

- Cherish

A beautiful short story with and unexpected twist.

If you could sum up The Sleeper and the Spindle in three words, what would they be?

Magical, sometimes creepy and dark but inspiring.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

All of the performances were wonderful, they really brought the story to life. I can't imagine a score more perfect for Gaiman's material.
