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 gorgeous full-color illustrated book version was born of a unique collaboration between New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman and renowned artist Eddie Campbell, who brought to vivid life 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 color and shadow, memory and regret, vengeance and, ultimately, love.

For what I did.
Both my 12 year old daughter read this and we both thoroughly enjoyed it.
The actual story is derived from folk tales and legends from the Inner and Outer Hebrides that Gaiman found while visitng the Isles of Skye.
Gaiman's wonderfully dark story is equalled and enhanced by the amazingly atmospheric illustrations of Eddie Campbell.

This is a great story. I usually enjoy reading physical books, but I opted for the enhanced version with Gaiman narrating it on my kindle. I'm glad I did. Read morePublished 1 month ago by JG85
