I am only partially through the book, but so far, this book has taken me by surprise and taken my imagination on a wild ride of excitement! I am absolutely in love with the story of Nobody Owens and I would definitely recommend it to any one of my friends!
There were parts of this books that made me burst out laughing and I enjoyed that
His narration is superb and gives the right and original image that he wanted to portray and I think that's the best way it can be done.
Neither extreme nor bleak, but a reaction of thrill.
I wouldn't say this should be read by anyone under 14, too much violence.
The characters were pretty real and believable.
The Graveyard Book is like a less complete Harry Potter, you hear alot of Bod's life but I couldn't help but want to hear more of it
Haha I can't really call one out they were all great.
Wife, mom, photographer, theologian, teacher, reader: I love my many hats.
I was intrigued from the first scene.
Silas. His mysterious yet approachable nature made him appealing.
As the author, it's wonderful to hear the intended tones and inflection.
Same as the book..."it takes a graveyard to raise a child."
The musical interludes, though short and infrequent, are mastered poorly. They are too loud and continue over the first several words of each section making it difficult to understand the narrator.
Amazing book and Neil Gaiman performs it well.
Recommending this book to everyone.
The development of characters makes you miss them when it's finished.
He did a great job with every character but I'd say his best is Mrs.lupesco was my favorite performance.
The story of a boy on his way to becoming a man and so much more!
As the final chapter was concluding I could not keep from crying my eyes out...I'm not sure if it was because I felt like like I was losing friends or because I knew that they had never known I was there to begin with.
Gaiman's trademark creativity -- a delightful mixture of fantasy and myth, humor and pathos, and a little horror (but of the mildest sort) all read beautifully by the author. Such endearing characters! I thoroughly enjoyed the story and listened to it twice. The musical interludes were just right, too.
great characters. nice simple storytelling
His voices were consistent and he has a very pleasant reading mano.
This book is flawless in what it aims to be. Simple storytelling, likeable characters and well read.
I am currently listening for a second time. It's an amazing adventure and Gaiman narration is so compelling.
Silas was my favorite character because he is shrouded in an intriguing mysteriousness.
I have not but I hope too soon.
I listened to the whole book in one day. I was hooked.
I highly, highly recommend this book to all ages and all people.
Really great concept, and implemented so we care about the characters.
Meeting his babysitter.. A hell hound
Love the accent, and the inflection.
Yes. Did it on a long car drive w sons 11/14 we all loved it.
We cared enough about bod to want another book.
In the top 10. One of the best.
The author did a remarkable job of conveying the atmosphere of the story.
I rarely repeat audiobooks. I might make an exception with this one, though.
Let's just say I usually avoid audiobooks read by the author. Most are not particularly skilled narrators (or at least not as good as a professional reader) and end up hurting the story more than aid it along. Gaiman, however, is the exception.
I have absolutely no idea. Maybe....The dead do have tales to tell
