I purchased this book based on the wonderful reviews written by other listeners. After listening to the first 3 cd's I could not figure out what the fuss was all about. The narration was very good but the story went nowhere, just jumping from one unusual character to another, never grabbing my interest. Keeping my focus on the book was getting difficult. I stopped listening. Maybe the story would get better but it certainly was not what the reviewers made me expect. The emperor is not wearing any clothes.
What a wonderful story. I LOVED it! Great story read by Gaiman made it simply Perfect in every way. I wany MORE of this story. This is a story I plan to listen to or read every year. Wonderful! Even better than Coraline or Stardust (if that's even possible!!).
Read, listen and share this wonderful, wonderful MASTERFUL story. Thank you again Neil Gaiman for reminding me what a great storyteller you are and (hopefully) will continue to be for many years!
My 12-yr old son and I listened to this one together, each of us enjoying the author's animated recounting of this most entertaining tale, which reaches to each reader's level of understanding of the complexity of the story, making it enjoyable for young and old alike.
Well, I'm going to jump on the bandwagon and tell you what you have already heard. Neil Gaiman is a creative genius and an excellent story teller.
I will be listening to this one again!
This book was boring from the beginning to the very end. I stuck with it because I paid hard earned money for the thing... I loved the narrator and all of the accents. However, the storyline was BORING!!!
I would recommend this book to any friend who likes a quirky and unpredictable adventure.
Definitely when Bod meets the witch
Couldn't say without giving away the ending.
I would like to hear Neil Gaiman voice more audiobooks.
I enjoyed listening to Neil Gaiman's voice.
This book is on my
Not well-spent. I kept wishing that something would actually happen with these cool characters.
I don't generally go for atypical fiction such as this, ie: kind of young adult, kind of fantasy, so I have yet to figure out just what it was that made The Graveyard Book so remarkably worthwhile for me to read. The discovery (for me) of Neil Gaiman may be a large part of it. His narration is perfect--inviting and calm, wise and direct, and the writing possesses just the precise balance of otherworldliness with real world to allow me to feel, all the way through, that it is completely and precisely True. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more of Gaiman's work.
