Publisher's Summary

You ask me if I can forgive myself? I can forgive myself....
And so begins The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains, a haunting story of family, the otherworld, and a search for hidden treasure. This audiobook is brought to vivid life by the characters and landscape of Gaiman’s award-winning story. In this volume, the talents and vision of two great creative geniuses come together in a glorious explosion of colour and shadow, memory and regret, vengeance and, ultimately, love....for many things. For where I left him. For what I did.

Wonderful short story

I started listening to this in the middle of a rainy blustery night whilst camping in pembrokeshire. I recommend you also listen to it on a cold wet day. though infront of a fire.
the music really adds to the story. and I always live listening to Neil Gaiman read. he reads beautifully.

SHORT BUT USUAL GAIMAN QUALITY

Neil Gaiman has set expectations very high for everything he writes, anything that falls short of brilliant will be a let down.
This book was not a let down, it had the interesting characters and storyline which keeps you wanting more. The length makes it more like a short story than something that you can lose yourself in, and I found myself aware that the story was drawing to a conclusion from very early into it.
This is a must for Gaiman fans and a good introduction for those seeing if they would enjoy his work.

Loved the story, found the music intrusive

What a fantastic tale - I loved this story, so immersive and beautifully written. But the music ruined this audio book for me - I found it intrusive and distracting, too loud against the reading, and quite jarring at times. I wish there was a version without it :/
