'Sam was brushing her hair when the girl in the mirror put down the hairbrush, smiled, and said, 'We don't love you anymore.'' So began the Twitter Audio project, with a dazzling first line penned by New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman. What followed was an epic tale of imaginary lands, magical objects, haunting melodies, plucky sidekicks, menacing villains, and much more.

From mystical blue roses to enchanted mirrors to pesky puppets, this classic fable was born from the collective creativity of more than one hundred contributors via the social network in a groundbreaking literary experiment. Together, virtual strangers crafted a rollicking story of a young girl's journey with love, forgiveness, and acceptance.

To quote one of the characters: 'too much, too fast', and the extremely animated voice of the narrator makes the matters much worse. It's very hard to keep up with the tempo of the narrative - if your mind wonders off for just several seconds you may find yourself completely lost. To put things into perspective, I should note that I do regard Neil Gaiman as one of the best and brightest fiction writers alive, and I absolutely loved each and every novel of his that came into my hands. This title here however has pretty much nothing to do with anything that Neil Gaiman has ever written. It reads like it was penned by an overimaginative middle-schooler in a late night flush of writing frenzy. In other words, pure graphomania. While I do realise this is a piece of collective effort of an online community, hence an experimental work of sorts, I still wouldn't want to put my name on such a piece of crap were I an accomplished author.
