Review: The Graveyard Book



A Book Your Friend Loves: The Graveyard Book by Niel Gaiman



Bod is an unusual boy who inhabits an unusual place—he's the only living resident of a graveyard. Raised from infancy by the ghosts, werewolves, and other cemetery denizens, Bod has learned the antiquated customs of his guardians' time as well as their ghostly teachings—such as the ability to Fade so mere mortals cannot see him.

Can a boy raised by ghosts face the wonders and terrors of the worlds of both the living and the dead? And then there are being such as ghouls that aren't really one thing or the other.



My friend Abbie gave this one 5 stars on Goodreads, so I'm taking that as "loves"

Very interesting story, classic Gaiman. It really seemed like a bunch of short stories, loosely tied together by the same main character, but the events in one did not seem to have a lot to do with those in another. Except the beginning and the end, it dose wrap up nicely. Overall I enjoyed it.

Rating: A
