Editorial Reviews

Young British television actress Stephanie Leonidas reprises her film role as Helena Campbell, the daughter of circus performers who is cast into a dark realm that is part Alice in Wonderland part Wizard of Oz, and part Salvador Dali. In a moment of rebellion, Helena wishes her mother dead. Later that evening, her mother falls into a coma, and Helena soon falls into a bizarre fantasy world in which a Dark Queen tries to wipe out Helena's past and make her a Dark Princess. Leonidas reads with a rich, sweet voice but lacks the energy and emotional intensity of her on-screen performance. Still, her enticing accent coupled with Gaiman's off-kilter storytelling makes this a delightful, if at times spooky, family audiobook.

Publisher's Summary

Raised in a family of circus performers, Helena's always dreamed of leading a more ordinary life. But when haunting music draws her into a strange and magical realm, one where anything can happen, her real life is stolen by a runaway from the other side. Helena must rescue the realm from chaos in order to win back her own not-so-ordinary life. MirrorMask is a breathtaking film written by best-selling author Neil Gaiman and brought to life through the vision of acclaimed artist and director Dave McKean. This original audio novella is Helena's tale in her own voice, a stunning and magical journey.

Doesn't translate well to audio

I love Neil and I love audiobooks. However, this is the only instance when I've heard one of his stories come off flat, and it's not the narrator's fault. There's just not much there. But, of course, if you've seen the movie, it's understandable that such beautifully strange visuals don't translate well into words. It seemed like there wasn't even an attempt to describe the "dream" sequence, and it feels hollow. Not typical Gaiman Greatness. Neil is a master writer with an astounding imagination. I recommend all of his other work, especially the ones he narrates himself.

MirrorMask was an extrordanary book. Even if it was a little short, it had me listening the whole time with eger anticipation. When the book ended, which I didn't want it to, I was very satisfied.
