I rent audio books as I drive back home twice a month, and the trip is about 4-5 hours. If you need something to keep you awake during the trip, try this book. Albeit short (only 3 hours), it will keep you entertained. Don't be fooled to thinking that this is a children's book. It may very well be, but I think that only adults is made aware of the "dark" side of it. Kudos to the author and the narrator, Neil Gaiman, for this fantastically written (and well-read) book. His voice was not droning, you will NOT FALL ASLEEP. I believe that Neil is the only one who can read it as exquisitely as it was read. After all, it's his book.
