I’ve never been a SyFy fan and Neil Gaiman has never been on my radar screen–that is until I heard him speak live. I was inspired by his thoughts and words so I picked up The View from the Cheap Seats in audio format. Oh, am I glad I did! As I weaved my car through the nooks and crannies of Minneapolis, Neil weaved my heart and mind through the nooks and crannies of his writing life and loves, experiences and perspectives, events and interviews (including a recap of one with the incomparable Stephen King.)
His voice is hypnotic and so is his storytelling. Traveling the Twin Cities with Neil Gaiman was like traveling with a trusted friend. This is a good man–a very good man–inspired, thoughtful, kind and honest. And this is a good read — particularly for the lover of words, the lover of language, and the lover of mankind.
