Oscar and Lucinda
by Peter Carey
It was just so lyrical. Every single chapter is like a little jewel. He has the most amazing way of bringing to life a scene with not just beautiful language, but incredible imagery. Like a coat rack with cats and coats on it looking like it’s covered with crows, like this image of these birds who are gonna take flight. And one of a bird diving into the water, piercing the membrane between dreams and reality, and he just had these wonderful turns of phrases where this woman who–there are parts that are really funny, too. So it’s not just all lyrical.— Astro Teller, source
The Graveyard Book
by Neil Gaiman
Now the other option that also has a really good track so far as far as people I’ve recommended it to is The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman. It’s about a young boy who is raised in a graveyard. Really, really stellar. I think the audiobook is partially what drew me in, just because Neil Gaiman is such an incredible narrator.— Astro Teller, source
