it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy
Read from January 09 to 21, 2012

I was lent this by my daughter after she had read - 'read this Dad, I know you'll like it'. Of course she knew I liked Neil Gaimn and so it was a fair bet from the start. Not surprisingly I loved it! A wonderfully quirky story about a boy who is adopted by the ghostly inhabitants of a graveyard. I especially enjoyed the epitaphs by which the various ghosts are introduced by after their names. Another highlight is the line drawings which do a lot to build up the atmosphere.

It's a quick read, and not everything is explained - and that is ok, adding to the mystery. Although it's a children's book, don't be put off by that, I'd say all ages would enjoy it.
