Is it weird that my husband and I are both currently reading a book by this guy??

Neil Gaiman sure sucked me in on this one. I was quite attached to Bod and his graveyard family. I really liked his take on warewolves, vampires and ghosts. I do wish he had had the opportunity to expand the storyline more on the three bad "guys" that captured him at one point. At that point, I lost a little bit of interest in the story but once Miss Lupescu came to his rescue I was intrigued again. That part of the story didn't tie in as well for me. But I loved Silas and his vampire ways. It was refreshing to get another perspective on vampires after all our readings of Twilight and Blue Bloods. And Silas reminded me of Siruis and that was a good memory too....
