This story is a fairy tale for teens or adults, and it is really good - holding me entranced for much of the story. Reminiscent in feel to The Princess Bride by William Goldman it features fairies and magic and mysterious witches and more. I listened to the MyMediaMall version narrated by the author, Neil Gaiman and he was wonderful! His voice has a slight British accent and each of his characters has his or her own lilt, cadence, and charm. I highly recommend that you listen to the audio book version through MyMediaMall or the book on CD even though one of the versions of the book in our library includes pictures by Charles Vess. I personally, will go look at the pictures now to finish off my experience. This was a solid 5 star book review in my opinion. I was sorry to have it end.
