The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains (audio)

The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains - Eddie Campbell, Neil Gaiman

I listened to this audio, read to me by Neil as a string quartet played in the background and the book was over before I knew it. I think the music helped set the tone for this novel and I really enjoyed both the music and listening to Neil read me his story. This novel reminded me of a fable or fairy tale as there seemed to be a moral in the story when it all was said and done. I enjoyed the simplicity of the story as the very small man makes his way to the Misty Isle to obtain gold in the cave. With the help of Calum MacInnes, the very small man finds his way to the Misty Isle, with a few short stops in-between. I liked the story of the cave and the ending again, reminded me of a fable. An adventurous conclusion with a message to be learned made this an enjoyable audio.
