it was amazing

Typically, science fiction/fantasy books aren't my first choice. But, Neil Gaiman's stories always seem to catch my attention. I enjoyed his creepy Young Adult novel, Coraline, and have used it in my classroom many times. My daughter loves his book The Wolves in the Walls!

The Graveyard Book is an interesting story about a baby who is adopted by the residents of a graveyard after his family is murdered. Mind you, the residents are all long deceased, which creates interesting parenting techniques. The murderer is still looking for the baby and there is a great deal of suspense created. We are able to watch the baby grow to be a young man and experience his confusion as he begins to interact with a young lady.

The Graveyard Book is a quick read and truly made me think of the possibilities of the after-life.
