FRAGILE THINGS Short Fictions and Wonders

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Neil Gaiman

Fiction • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Master storyteller Neil Gaiman begins this collection by introducing many of the stories, his introduction proving to be a story in its own right. Gaiman’s performance aptitude matches his writing ability, as each tale resonates with subtlety and insight. Every character, no matter how brief his or her appearance, receives impeccable attention vocally and textually. And every word of narrative shines. Listeners new to Gaiman will be surprised by the variety of literary genres in this collection, from fairy tales to crime to romance and even science fiction. Gaiman steps nimbly through each, offering a shadow of meaning here, a barely perceptible nuance there, a punch of anger or a featherbed of sweetness where needed, leading his audience through 10 hours of the best listening of the year. R.L.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2007 Audies Award Finalist, AudioFile Best Audiobook of 2007 © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
