Ahoy there me mateys! So the last experiment of me listenin’ to an audiobook while doin’ mundane tasks worked. But could the results be repeated? I decided to test the experience a second time. The twist this time? To listen to a book I had never read before ::GASP!!::. But what to pick . . .
Well scrolling through me list of choices, I realized that ’twas no choice at all. Neil Gaiman’s shiny title stood out. I have a wee bit of an obsession (for details click here) and so I gleefully began the tale. When suddenly . . .
I realized that Mr. Neil Gaiman hisself was narratin’. The intensity of the experience escalated. I had no inkling until that exact moment that he was goin’ to read me his own story. Blimey!
The story. The narration. The experience. Absolutely perfect. Hearin’ about a dad’s trip to the store to get milk has never been so fun. In fact one of me crew actually dared to ask what me satisfied smirking grin be about. I just continued to grin like a cheshire cat. Heave Ho and get yerself a copy!
Side note: I will certainly give a gander to this story again. I am slightly curious about both the English and American illustrations. But I likely will just listen to it again. So perfect.
Goodreads has this to say about the novel:
“I bought the milk,” said my father. “I walked out of the corner shop, and heard a noise like this: t h u m m t h u m m. I looked up and saw a huge silver disc hovering in the air above Marshall Road.”
“Hullo,” I said to myself. “That’s not something you see every day. And then something odd happened.”
