I’ve not been disappointed by any book I’ve read by Neil Gaiman and this one is no exception. The full-cast production I bought from Audible made it even better. I’ve decided that all Gaiman books should be read with the ears.
The Graveyard bookÂ has several stories covering Nobody Owens as he grows from a toddler into a capable young man. Each episode covered is entertaining and kept me completely engrossed. The actors made Gaiman’s fantastic descriptions and dialogue really come to life. I couldn’t help but feel like I was right there with them.
The individual stories were interesting but they all brought us closer to the over-arching story line – finding out who killed Bod’s family and why. Along the way, we got to meet so many wonderful residents of the graveyard, as well as some very interesting visitors.
I obviously recommend reading this one. And if you’ve got a young person in your life, it’s safe to read it together. No sex or gory bits at all.
