The Graveyard Book

I love The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman!  I read and reviewed it for the blog back in 2008 and this time decided to listen to the audiobook, mainly because I knew that i would get through it if i listened to it (i'm having troubles actually reading physical books at home, school=arg) and also because Gaiman narrated it.  

I absolutely love this book.  It just hits all of my buttons; it is growing up and love and loss, about learning and becoming your own hero, about family and friendship and is very bittersweet.  It is a book that i want to recommend to everyone and can't wait until the nieces are just a little older to send it to them!  a 7.

  4. Chris-Gaiman does have a great voice. I listened to him read Neverwhere. There's a little girl in 1 scene named Melanie and I must have listened to him say "Melanie" 2 dozen times!

    Melissa and Andi- it definitely gets better with rereads!
