#223 - "The Graveyard Book" by Neil Gaiman

Title: The Graveyard Book
Author: Neil Gaiman

Bod is an unusual boy who inhabits an unusual place-he's the only living resident of a graveyard. Raised from infancy by the ghosts, werewolves, and other cemetery denizens, Bod has learned the antiquated customs of his guardians' time as well as their timely ghostly teachings-like the ability to Fade.

Can a boy raised by ghosts face the wonders and terrors of the worlds of both the living and the dead? And then there are things like ghouls that aren't really one thing or the other.
My rating: 5 of 5 
My thoughts on the book:
This was a re-read for me! Although I loved this book the first time I read it, I didn't think that it's possible to love it even more, but now I think I do! I loved the story, the characters, the writing, everything about it & although I've read it before, I still couldn't put it down! One of my favorite books & I highly recommend it!


Although I love this blue cover of the book, I have to post the cover of the limited edition by Subterranean Press! It's simply amazing & it really fits the story! So, here it is:
