This is such a beautiful book. It is a reimagining of Kipling‘s The Jungle Book where the protagonist, Nobody Owens, a real life boy who lives in the graveyard with the spirits and other supernatural beings. He is forbidden to leave the graveyard as the person who murdered his family, waits for him. Bod has interesting adventures and it touches on love, loss, family, and survival. Definitely a pick.

A delightfully macabre story in the same vein as The Addams Family. A fun, easy read with some poignant moments.

The graveyard in Old Town is definitely a #Ghosttown with all its denizens living as a community of ghosts & other supernaturals & raising the human boy, Bod.

I love this book & the audio read by the author is even better. 👻👻👻🖤📚

Texreader I loved this book. I also want the graphic novel. Now it sounds like I need to get the audiobook too! 3mo

1. Neil Gaiman for sure. Tagging my fav Gaiman book😍
2. I would love to ask him how he imagines all these different worlds in his books🤩
3. Very less due to space constraints. About 20 I would say. I would love to have a massive bookshelf of my own someday❤
4. Anyone who wants to join can do so!

@Eggs This was fun! Happy Wednesday!

My awesome pen pal, @EmilyM sent this book to me in a Halloween package, and I‘m so glad she did! It‘s a wonderful story with memorable characters. It‘s so touching and gave me all the feels but there‘s also a bit of creepiness. A great Halloween/fall read!

What a wonderful book. I read it with my kids and we all enjoyed it so much. I had trouble reading the last chapter through my tears, it was so touching - but there was plenty of creepiness and excitement throughout the book as well! I love all of Neil Gaiman‘s books, and this one was no exception.

The full cast #audiobook was fantastic.

I slept for a few hours and woke up early to listen to the rest of this book to finish out the #readathon. That‘s 4 books completed, this one completely during the last 24 hours, and just over 11 solid hours of reading and audiobook time. #DeweysReadathon #DeweyOct

I got into this just after finishing Neil Gaiman's The Sandman and I had extremely high hopes from it. It did NOT disappoint. Seldom have I read anything so dark and yet utterly beautiful and heart touching. Neil Gaiman manages to beautifully capture what the world inside the graveyard would be had they a living being amongst them. And it's not just ghosts, there's ghouls and werewolves and an ancient Cabal. A fantastic read, my rating 5/5.

I loved this story! I‘ve always been fascinated by cemeteries and I wonder if it‘s partially because our town‘s main cemetery was next door to my elementary school. Growing up in New England there were plenty of old cemeteries to explore and those are my favorite spots to visit when in Boston. They‘re special places. Thanks to @madamereadsalot1 for gifting this to me in a swap! 🤗

"Sometimes fiction is a way of coping with the poison of the world in a way that lets us survive it. It's not irrelevant, those moments of connection, those places where fiction saves your life. It's the most important thing there is."
~Neil Gaiman (part of his Newberry Award acceptance speech for this book.)

Lot's of ghosts in this story! ?

GingerAntics I was just looking at the opening line yesterday. It‘s a GREAT opening line! It seems to be the original opening line, too. I saw a photo of the first page of the actual hand written first draft. I didn‘t know he drafts almost everything by hand first, so typing it up becomes the second draft. 3mo

GingerAntics They are amazing! That fact that they‘re just in some random house in Wisconsin right now, just all over the place is amazing! It makes me watch to write by hand again. I haven‘t done that in absolute ages, but then I really suck and typing stuff up once it‘s written, so I‘m not sure it would ever get done. I‘m torn. 3mo

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gainman was written in 2008. This is a great book to read! It is very suspenseful and the characters are very well done with their personalities always showing a different side. This book has such an unusual but amazing story line. It keeps you wanting to read more and not want to put the book down!
