Coraline Audiobook

Coraline

Author: Neil Gaiman Narrator: Neus Sendra Release Date: August 2020

Acompaña a Coraline y déjate transportar al mundo de fantasía y terror creado por el premiado autor Neil Gaiman. «Damas y caballeros, niñas y niños, pónganse en pie y aplaudan: Coraline es una obra maestra.» Philip Pullman, The Guardian Al día siguiente de mudarse de casa, Coraline explora las catorce puertas de su nuevo hogar. Trece se pueden abrir con normalidad, pero la decimocuarta está cerrada y tapiada. Cuando por fin consigue abrirla, Coraline se encuentra con un pasadizo secreto que la conduce a otra casa tan parecida a la suya que resulta escalofriante. Sin embargo, hay ciertas diferencias que llaman su atención: la comida es más rica, los juguetes son tan desconocidos como maravillosos y, sobre todo, hay otra madre y otro padre que quieren que Coraline se quede con ellos, se convierta en su hija y no se marche nunca. Pronto Coraline se da cuenta de que, tras los espejos, hay otros niños que han caído en la trampa. Son como almas perdidas, y ahora ella es su única esperanza de salvación. Pero para rescatarlos tendrá también que recuperar a sus verdaderos padres, y cumplir así el desafío que le permitirá volver a su vida anterior. Reseñas: «Este libro te producirá escalofríos y el miedo se te colará por los zapatos. Posee el delicado toque de terror de los mejores cuentos de hadas y es una obra maestra. Después de leerlo, no volverás a mirar un botón como antes.» Terry Pratchett «Delicado y extraordinario, se lee como un cruce de Alicia en el país de las maravillas y Stephen King.» Independent on Sunday «Una fantasía magnífica y siniestra; Gaiman muestra un gran conocimiento de los temores de los niños y de su capacidad para superarlos.» Kirkus Reviews «Un libro maravillosamente extraño y espeluznante [...]. Neil Gaiman es demasiado sutil para aludir a lo sobrenatural, es mucho más misterioso. Los peligros son reales y parte de la riqueza de esta historia se encuentra en el hecho de que ofrece muchos significados sin imponer ninguno [...].» Philip Pullman, The Guardian «Gaiman logra tejer una apasionante y adictiva narración, a caballo entre los mitos de los cuentos de hadas infantiles y el suspense propio de un filme de terror. [...] Tras su lectura no volveremos a mirar los botones de la misma manera y cada vez que tengamos que abrir una puerta nos lo pensaremos dos veces.» Sandra Pérez, ABC «Coraline es una digna heredera de las grandes heroínas de la literatura infantil, pero también lon es de las historias góticas de Poe, Lovecraft, etc. Gaiman sabe inventar ambientes y recrear la atmósfera necesaria para arañar e, incluso en ocasiones, hecer estremecerse al lector.» Pep Molist, Quadern, El País

Diana Rigg, Derek Jacobi, Colin Morgan, Natalie Dormer and Neil Gaiman himself are among the stellar cast in these spellbinding stories of old betrayals - and new hope.

Norse Mythology Audiobook

Norse Mythology

Author: Neil Gaiman Narrator: Neil Gaiman Release Date: February 2017

Introducing an instant classic--master storyteller Neil Gaiman presents a dazzling version of the great Norse myths. Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly reincarnating Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki, the son of a giant, a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. From Gaiman’s deft and witty prose emerges the gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to dupe others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again. Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook. ** Please contact Customer Service for additional content.
