Jim is an ordinary man of our time. He's unexpectedly transported 2,000 years into the future. He and his two sons, with a rental truck packed with the contents of their house, cause a major sensation with the population of that future time. Due to wars, politics, and age, little knowledge exists of the time Jim came from in the early 21st century. His gift to them is knowledge of a long forgotten past. He has one problem; someone is trying to kill him for what he knows.

If you could sum up The Time Stone in three words, what would they be?

Wasn't sure at first, but I was glad I Persisted ! Imaginative fun story with a few nice twist's
I would recommend it.

What other book might you compare The Time Stone to, and why?

Don't think I have read anything quite like it really.

What about Michael Burnette’s performance did you like?

His voice and rendering of the words suited the story line very well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was quite long so I listened over several days.

Any additional comments?

Just really good fun, and maybe thought provoking too.

Under the streets of London there's a world most people could never even dream of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and pale girls in black velvet. Richard Mayhew is a young businessman who is about to find out more than he bargained for about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his safe and predictable life and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and yet utterly bizarre.

Where does Neverwhere rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A front runner

What was one of the most memorable moments of Neverwhere?

The markets scene, the people ifn the market seemed so familiar, with a funny and sinister twist. The goods they sold where halfway in our world and also in earth below, clever.

Have you listened to any of Neil Gaiman’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I am a great fan of Neil Gaiman's work. Although it is very hard to compare I loved Stardust I loved the Anansi boys.but I think I must say Neverwhere has my vote.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think the most moving part of this story was when the rat girl disappeared when crossing he bridge. And the regret felt by the main character .

Any additional comments?

Neil Gaiman is a fabulous author, his stories are funny gripping and full of unexpected twists and turns and surprises. Fantastic more please Mr Gaiman!
