Waterstones Says

The master of the macabre brings his singular gothic vision to the tale of Bod, raised by the ghouls of the graveyard and kept safe from a ruthless killer who has offed the rest of Bod’s family. Elegantly structured and written with crepuscular relish, The Graveyard Book is a wickedly sinister treat from start to finish.

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?

This is the second time I've read this book (even buying my own copy, it is that good) and I must say it just gets better and better. The subtleties of Gaiman's story-telling comes out even more on the... More
