VIDEO: The Sandman

Updated: Oct 6, 2022

Steve Phillips and Matthew Layton present #AudioBookClub - the world’s only interactive audiobook review and recommendation podcast.

On this episode, Steve and Matthew discuss possibly the audiobook with the biggest production budget of all time: “The Sandman” by Neil Gaiman.

Based on Gaiman's series of graphic novels from the late 80s and early 90s, this audiobook boasts a cast that numbers amongst its members some very expensive actors indeed - James McAvoy, Michael Sheen, Andy Serkis, Riz Ahmed, Sandra Dickinson....

The production is lavish - a series of immersive soundscapes that bring to life an extraordinary eleven hour blockbusting film in the movie theatre of the listener's mind.

And what does this genre-defining moment mean for the future of the audiobook as a medium?

Matthew and Steve investigate, then invite you to get involved in the conversation.
