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 beneath the hill, a gateway to a desert leading to an abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible menace of the Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod's family. . . . Beloved master storyteller Neil Gaiman returns with a luminous new novel for the audience that embraced his New York Times bestselling modern classic Coraline. Magical, terrifying, and filled with breathtaking adventures, the graveyard book is sure to enthrall readers of all ages.

The story had a reasonably satisfying if bittersweet end, but there were things that could have been ...

5.0 The Graveyard Book ★★★★★
Nobody Owens is adorable, even when he’s being a brat. The characters that Gaiman surrounds him with are fun to read and each is uniquely individual, from the inhabitants of the graveyard, to the ghouls who kidnap him, to the members of the Jack society. And of course, his friend Scarlett. Even bett...
