Journeyed there and back again
I've recently listened to Stardust by Neil Gaiman (kind of). I picked up this amazing BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of the book, my first audiobook of this kind, and had a blast listening to it. I'd never had such an immersive reading experience before and was so distracted by the full cast of voice actors and wonderful sound effects that it any stifled suspicions I might've had about the audiobook's short duration and the fact that it was, obviously (not to me), a dramatisation and thus not an actual novel. It was only a day later when I realised, while reading some of the reviews of the book, that a particular scene with a unicornand most likely many other scenes have been treated with a generous dash of artistic liberty, which has left me wondering whether I've actually read the book or not. Either way, I've really enjoyed it. More so than The Ocean at the End of the Lane and has got me interested in reading some more of Gaiman's works (I'm open to any recommendations, I've heard Neverwhere is good). I highly recommend listening to this version if you're interested.
its explicitly detailed death apparently
Still, Sandman is still his best work. While his prose isn't bad by any means, I think just the images and dialogue served his strengths more. But that's probably because that's how I was first introduced to his work, so the actual prose was a departure to me.
