I'd liked the author from a previous book and sorta knew this was a bit more juvenile. However the complexities and brilliance of Neil's writings prevails here in this tome as... Read morePublished 3 hours ago by Arf!
My first Neil Gaiman book and it was an interesting read. He writes very well and tells a good story. Some similarities to Harry Potter, but better written. Well worth a read.Published 2 days ago by Neale Blackwood
This book felt like it plateaued early and took a long time building to the resolution but it was well written and interesting.Published 5 days ago by Dava Nichole Tuttle
Neil Gaiman maps out philosophy and life lessons with such clarity that you get jetlag when you realize you just crambed years of trial and error into on line. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Stormcrow
Solid Gaimen written for all ages with a kid story feel and an adult perspective. It's just creepy and odd enough.Published 10 days ago by Timothy F Eubeler

There are ghouls and other creepy... Read More

|Is Neil doing the voice work for this?||
I agree ... I can't imagine anyone else performing his work. So ... good news! According to the HarperCollins Web site, Mr. Gaiman does indeed read this audiobook.

|The Graveyard Book -- Enlighten me please||
For your first question, it's explained on pages 270-271. Basically, there was a prophecy that said a child who walked the borderland between life and death would be the end of their order if he grew to adulthood. So, Bod was the target. His family was just 'collateral damage', I guess you could... Read More
