The Graveyard Book is a wonderful tale by Neil Gaiman of a boy named Nobody. A boy who survived a brutal attack on his family and was adopted by the Owens, a married couple who during their living lives had had no children. A young child finds his way into a graveyard and is adopted by some if its inhabitants. He is granted freedom of the graveyard which lets him move similar to a spirit, allowing himself to be hidden where no normal person could hide. We follow Nobody, Bod for short as he grows up, finds out the story of his family and the treacherous threats that still hang over his head. A dark, entertaining novel that keeps you engaged and on the edge of your seat. Some more well known books by Gaiman, Coraline and Stardust have both been made into movies, being familiar with the movies first then the author, I am definitely adding Coraline and Stardust to my reading list. A good read!
