Fragile Things Audiobook is a collection of short stories and poetry by English author Neil Gaiman. Here’s what the introduction says about: Short Fictions and Wonders: “It appeared like a satisfactory title for an audiobook of short stories. There are so many fragile things, after all. People smash so easily, and so do dreams and hearts.”

It all feels like a determined try to launch a series of unrelated tales into the world. They are all very unique and man or woman with a title that could be applied to a range of exceptional quick storybooks alternatively of this one.

So the audiobook that has been offered to us feels like a very different component to the one I listened to. I loved it, however, I don’t suppose it pretty embodies the mannequin awkwardly proposed. I had very similar feelings when I listened to Gaiman’s more current collection Trigger Warning Audiobook. The stories had been quite good, but very few had whatever to do with the thought of a “trigger” that units the story in motion and exhibits the horror lurking in wait. They were simply stories.

Plot Summary

A mysterious circus terrifies an audience for one extraordinary performance before disappearing into the night, taking one of the spectators along with it.

In a novella set two years after the events of American Gods, Shadow pays a visit to an ancient Scottish mansion, and finds himself trapped in a game of murder and monsters.

In a Hugo Award-winning short story set in a strangely altered Victorian England, the great detective Sherlock Holmes must solve a most unsettling royal murder.

Two teenage boys crash a party and meet the girls of their dreams and nightmares.

In a Locus Award-winning tale, the members of an exclusive epicurean club lament that they’ve eaten everything that can be eaten, with the exception of a legendary, rare, and exceedingly dangerous Egyptian bird.

Such marvelous creations and more, including a short story set in the world of The Matrix and others set in the worlds of gothic fiction and children’s fiction, can be found in this extraordinary collection, which showcases Gaiman’s storytelling brilliance as well as his entertaining (and dark) sense of humor. By turns delightful, disturbing, and diverting, Fragile Things is a gift of literary enchantment from one of the most unique writers of our time.

Neil Gaiman – Fragile Things Audiobook Reviews

Neil Gaiman is a master of short fiction! This is a fine collection of stories that range from the terrifying to the comic, sometimes masterfully blending both. And Gaiman’s memories are full of possibilities. They are all so random and based upon danger encounters, and that’s what drives them forward: I simply didn’t be aware of what to anticipate from story to story. A man can walk into a diner and bump into a man he hasn’t considered for ten years who has a very darkish and twisted story to share. A boy can stroll down the street and see a ghost in the lamplight or any other can wake up and discover himself in hell. There’s simply no filter to the possibilities. They can go anywhere and be anything

So in terms of entertainment value (and the potential to preserve matters clean and interesting across pieces) these scores very highly. No two testimonies are identical and none, in reality, comply with a unique pattern or system. The idea of grouping them underneath a title appears a little absurd. A few of them, though, did sense as they belonged in the same world as American Gods. I wouldn’t be completely surprised if he wrote some of them at the equal time as working on his magnum-opus; there are definitely parallels.

As with all short story collections (especially inconsistent ones), there are properly tales and then there are awful tales regularly involved. With this some stories stay open and then there are some that are bizarre to the factor of being nonsensical. This is very tons a mixed bag. I really loved a few then there were others that just left me feeling careworn as the story didn’t seem to do anything.

I think Gaiman is a whole lot better novel (and graphic novel) creator than he is a quick story writer. This is really worth analyzing if you’re already a huge fan of his, but if you’re searching for sincerely a decent collection of quick tales I can suppose of a lot better places to look.

Fragile Things Audiobook Mp3 is a series of oddities, retellings, poetry, spin-offs, and queer creations of Neil Gaiman’s colorful imagination. Some of the tales have been posted elsewhere, like Sunbird and October In The Chair, which had been blanketed in his M Is For Magic compilation, and some had been published in different authors’ works, written specifically through Neil Gaiman, upon their request. A sequence of very quick tales used to be stimulated by using an album of one of my favorite female indie artists, Tori Amos, who is proper friends with Gaiman. There have been award-winning testimonies here, too, such as A Study In Emerald which won the Hugo Award for Best Short Story and Sunbird, which obtained for its writer the Locus Award.

The audiobook additionally included, at the very final part, a novella posted two years after American Gods got here out, entitled Monarch of the Glen. In the novella, the major character from American Gods, Shadow, finds himself lured into a game with monsters. I had my doubts at first on whether I have to study it, considering I have yet to examine American Gods and may inadvertently run into spoilers, but threw warning into the wind, anyway. The novella, as it would turn out, would have a totally separate and awesome plot from American Gods. (I asked my husband, who has examined it, okay.)

I had a difficult time choosing a favored story from Fragile Things, due to the fact I loved everything! But I finally whittled it down to five: Harlequin Valentine , a brief story based on the Harlequinade pantomime; The Flints of Memory Lane , which gave me the creeps; Other People , due to the fact it gave me extra of the creeps and some goosebumps, too; Feeders and Eaters , for the sheer weirdness and horror of it, and; The Problem of Susan , which retells, if you will, the story of Susan Pevensie of The Chronicles of Narnia after the collection had concluded. If you’ve got read the series, you’ll take into account that Susan used to be no longer covered in the remaining books, as she had taken to fancy things and such, and was once no longer “fit” to return to Narnia.

On the other hand, I couldn’t think of any brief story or poem that I did not like. The brief story written specifically for The Matrix, which Neil carried out prior to the screening of the very first Matrix film, was, of course, a bit predictable, as it was once made to cater to the plot of the film. Apart from that, however, it was nonetheless an interesting read, and I enjoyed that one nonetheless.

If I had been to use the word ”unputdownable” to describe an audiobook, Fragile Things is the one. No one in the world, I think, has a more vivid and extraordinary imagination as Neil does. Plus, he writes just beautifully: easy words, simple language, languid construction. He is the great storyteller there is, period. By far the best part of this purchase was Gaiman’s narration. His voice is hypnotizing.
