Book Review – The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

“The Graveyard Book” by Neil Gaiman, was published in 2008. It is a fictional book about an infant that luckily escapes his crib when he was a toddler, wandering off in to the local graveyard where multiple ghost’s agree to take care of the stray boy and “teach him their tricks”. The story was told from the perspective of the little boy whilst growing up, and the struggles that he faced and made him to develop into the person he became at the end of the book. The setting of this book means everything to the plot of the book; if they hadn’t been close to the graveyard as the boy snuck out of his crib, he would’ve never met the ghosts that raised him and brought him into becoming the person that he is. In my personal opinion the book is a 4/5 and is especially good if you’re just looking for something light to read.
