The Graveyard Book

The Graveyard BookThe Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Honestly, I’m not to sure about this book. I mean it wasn’t horrible at all and kept me interested. However, something was just off. Maybe because it’s more macabre and a young teen book and I’m just not use to reading this genre. This book tells the story of young Nobody (Bod), who as a toddler escaped a murderer and ended up in a graveyard. There he meets some ghost who take him in and raise him as his own. There he grows up and learns about life, love, and how to overcome struggles. Even though he is raised by ghosts he does have a guardian who is able to leave the graveyard to get him food, clothes, ect and takes him on a few adventures. This book would be prefect for young readers whom are interested in ghosts, ghouls, and just overall mischief.

Book Summary:

Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead. There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy – an ancient indigo man, a gateway to abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible fleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will be in danger from the man Jack – who has already killed Bod’s family . .
