The Graveyard Book
The Graveyard Book | Neil Gaiman
When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard? Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family. A stunningly original novel deftly constructed over eight chapters, featuring every second year of Bod's life, from babyhood to adolescence. Will Bod survive to be a man?

A family is murdered except for the youngest child, a toddler who happened to figure out how to escape his crib at a very opportune time. He wanders down the street to a graveyard where he is raised by its otherworldly inhabitants. As he grows older he will leave the safety of the graveyard and venture out into the world where a man waits to finish the job. This reminded me a little of Lincoln in the Bardo, which I also loved! 5⭐️

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.

One of my favorites by Mr. Gaiman. Both the audio and physical book are fantastic! I need to get my hands on the graphic novel.

"Fear is contagious. You can catch it. Sometimes all it takes is for someone to say that they're scared for the fear to become real,"

~ The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.

Honestly, I got goosebumps after reading the opening line to this spooky book ♡.

Hmm, my wild book box arrived today - and I‘m not that enthused with their selection but the note means I‘m going to give them another month to wow me (and then I‘ll sleep my subscription for a couple of months - so that it feels like a treat when it reactivates)

Moonprismpower Have you read this before? It‘s really good. Does the package come with other goodies? 4mo
Lindy “this is the best we‘ve got this month” isn‘t really selling this delightful novel, is it? It sounds apologetic rather than celebratory. (edited) 4mo
Susanita I really liked this book. 4mo

thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Moonprismpower, I read most of it when it came out but lost interest before the end 😅 this particular book box is just the book - which I rather like ☺️ they‘re all thrifted too. 4mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Lindy, I‘ve never really connected with a Gaiman novel (I haven‘t tried them all). Would you say it‘s a cozy fantasy? For this particular book box you fill in a bookish wish list - I think I stumped them a bit… 4mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Susanita, maybe it‘ll be the book that makes me a Gaiman fan 🤞🏼 4mo
Susanita TBH he‘s kind of hit or miss for me, but this one was a hit. 4mo
Lindy Yes, I would say it‘s on the cosy side of fantasy, in spite of the fact that it starts out with all but the youngest member of a family being murdered. From then on (after the first scene) it‘s got a lot of warmth. 4mo
thegreensofa I get Wild Books box too! You‘re card‘s writing is so much neater than mine lol. I have had really good success with them and have only been uninterested in one book so far, which was totally off my track. 4mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Lindy, good to know - I‘ll chuck it onto my tbr mountain and get to it ✨one day✨ 4mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @thegreensofa, I love the concept of the Wild book box - glad you are having such success with it ☺️ I‘ve been pretty happy with mine - I‘ve played with my profile a few times to see what they come up with. That‘s so funny about the writing, I wonder how many people they have on staff. 4mo

This was my 3rd time reading this creepy coming-of-age story. It's modeled on The Jungle Book but set in a graveyard instead. At its heart, it‘s about a boy who feels like he doesn‘t quite fit in anywhere. That unifying feeling makes the book applicable to just about anyone. Gaiman creates an unforgettable world in the graveyard and these characters will stay with me forever.

“If I come back, it will be a place, but it won‘t be home any longer."

Leftcoastzen Amazing tombstone! 5mo
AvidReader25 @Leftcoastzen Isn‘t that beautiful! 5mo
BkClubCare So should I read Jungle Book first? 4mo
AvidReader25 @BkClubCare Definitely don‘t need to! Totally stands on its own without knowing anything about that original inspiration. 4mo

The beginning and end were strong but the middle seemed to drag. #20in4 #Readathon I am 57 pages short of my 600 page goal at 11:40 pm. I am not going to make it. I am ok with it, considering day one I had a sick kid. Days 2 and 3 had me parenting alone and day 4 brought a killer headache.

My first Gaiman book and I loved it - fell in love with Bod (a boy who grows up between the world of ghosts and the living, a human boy raised by ghosts, hunted by Jack ) It was sweet and funny and sad and a mystery (who is Jack) -

1. Sometimes - but if I do I'm not going to enjoy the story as much -
2. Harry Potter and I think Thursday Murder Club will be fun
3. no, but some turn me off - teenage girl, moody, hates her father, then has life changing experience where she begins to see value in her dad (yes, you know what series I am talking about)
4. family, friends and books

HAPPY BOOK FAIR DAY! 🎉🎉🎉 This week the library has a summer reading book fair and all kids and teens who have completed their summer reading logs get a free book! 😃💕📚 It was my first year ordering books for this and as you can tell, I'M HYPED! 😂🤣 So far, the tagged book has been super popular and it brings me such joy to be able to hand teens and teens a book by one of my favorite authors! #librarylove #librariansoflitsy

We've had quite a few younger kids pick from our teen graphic novel picks! 😃 @Clare-Dragonfly It really is! 😃💛 @Hooked_on_books That is exactly what it feels like! 😁💕📚 14mo

Another great book I got to read for my classes! Disappointed because my small class of older students weren‘t at all excited to read or interested in the book, but I loved it. About a boy who is raised by ghosts and a vampire in a graveyard and uncovering the mystery of how he ended up there. So good and definitely recommend for older students

This might be one of the cutest things I've ever experienced. Apparently, Rumpel loves being read to! 😻💕📚 When I open a book and start reading out loud she runs over, jumps in my lap, and pays attention! Usually after a little while she falls asleep in either my lap or on my chest. I'm tagging The Graveyard Book because that is what we're reading together currently. (we're I'm page 21!) She loves it! And Neil Gaiman apparently! 🤣😂 #rumpel
