THE TRUTH IS A CAVE IN THE BLACK MOUNTAINS A Tale of Travel and Darkness with Pictures of All Kinds

by | Read by Neil Gaiman

Fantasy • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2014

Neil Gaiman's gift for blending the macabre and the exhilarating is in full force in this intense production, which follows two men through treacherous lands as they seek treasure and vengeance. Gaiman's rumbling baritone captures the menacing hunger and desperation the travelers feel as the mountains close in around them. The precision of his storytelling allows him to deliver the story with clarity and intimacy. The music of FourPlay string orchestra heightens the emotion at key moments and reflects the ominous beauty of the setting. The story’s suspense, along with the heartrending music and Gaiman's masterful delivery, makes this production one of his best works yet.
