The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman - A Review

“You're always you, and that don't change, and you're always changing, and there's nothing you can do about it.”

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I recently read it and loved.

We follow Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, who is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts.
There are dangers and adventures for Bod in the graveyard. But it is in the land of the living that real danger lurks for it is there that the man Jack lives and he has already killed Bod's family.

I really like Neil Gaiman writing style. It is rich and beautiful and he always makes unique and lovable characters. Characters that you invest in them and root for them.
The book is inspired by The Jungle book but it is set in a graveyard insted of a jungle, which I found a really clever and perfecty executed idea.

The book is adventurous, mysterious and a little bit dark. It's medium -paced, with a strong character development and very lovable characters (main & secondary ones).

I highly recommend it to both adults and kids.
