HALLOWEEN REVIEW: “CLICK CLACK THE RATTLEBAG" by Neil Gaiman


CLICK CLACK THE RATTLEBAG
Written and performed by 
NEIL GAIMAN (Audible.com)

OVERVIEW

"'What kind of story would you like me to tell you?' 'Well,' he said, thoughtfully, 'I don't think it should be too scary, because then when I go up to bed, I will just be thinking about monsters the whole time. But if it isn't just a little bit scary, then I won't be interested. And you make up scary stories, don't you?'"

So begins this subtle, witty, deceptive little tale from master storyteller Neil Gaiman. Lock the doors, turn off the lights, and enjoy!

REVIEW

This is my first audio book review. It’s a short story written by Neil Gaiman and also narrated by him - and what a splendid performance it was! The story is perfect for young and old alike, and the narration was very well done and added dimension to the characters. I also enjoyed the sound effects near the end, and although I could see the twist coming a mile away, it didn’t dampen my enjoyment of this little treasure. Twelve minutes of goose bumps, and chills running down your spine; this is a must-read for any horror fan! Well done!!

I don't know if I'll be capable to "read" an audio book - ever, but Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors so it would be a good start. Thank you B4T for this post and review.
