I loved this book..It was simply darkly gorgeous, brilliant, lyrical..and all sorts of wonderful adjectives. If you are a fan of Neil Gaiman and even if you aren't..read this book!
The story of a very young child who loses his family in a horrible act of violence and takes shelter in and grows up in a local graveyard, being raised by the spirits who live there, all the while hiding from the man who murdered his family is one of the most touching books I have ever read.
It takes it's place at the top of my very favorites.
