The Graveyard Book cover

Neil Gaiman’s novel The Graveyard Book is an awesome ghost story! This book follows the boy, Nobody “Bod” Owens, who is raised in a graveyard after his entire family is murdered by The Man Jack.

As a baby, Bod wanders into the graveyard, where the ghostly couple Mr. and Mrs. Owens adopt him, and a ghost by the name of Silas takes the role as Bod’s guardian. Once his is adopted and accepted as a member of the graveyard, Bod is given the “Freedom of the Graveyard”, which means that he is able to do everything the ghosts are able to do, such as Fading and walking through walls and seeing in the dark.

Growing up, Bod explores the graveyard and often gets himself into trouble. However, as he grows up, he develops an interest for the outside world. Once he realizes the world outside of the graveyard is not what he expects, Silas takes all necessary measures to protect him.

The Graveyard Book is an adventurous, exciting, and heartwarming story that revolves around the meaning of home, family, and friendship. Within this story, Neil Gaiman gives us a grand tour of life (or death) inside a cemetery and he guides us through with amazing characters! Gaiman offers a journey that includes an underworld full of ghouls, a buried treasure, magic, and tremendous thrill! This book is definitely a must-read, and I rate this with five stars!

I decided to make this review spoiler-free for anyone who has not yet read the book, and who is interested. However, I will be publishing more thorough review that will include spoilers for those who would appreciate more detail and more commentary from yours truly.
