I really ate this up. A fun little fantasy that's very well read. Nothing kills a good story like a bad reader, and I think it's rare to find authors who read their own work well. Gaiman is a first-class reader as well as storyteller.
I purchased this book without knowing it was aimed at teenagers. I started out skeptical, but it won me over quickly. It was well worth the credit. I have never been disappointed by Gaiman.
What a different book. I grit my teeth at the beginning because it begins vague (on purpose) and weird compared to my usual selection in audio books. But I was hooked not too far in and really enjoyed it all the way through. A couple "dull" moments which I fast forwarded through but a delightful tale. With Neil Gaiman reading his own book, you realize you are hearing it as he intended. Which is sometimes a question in audio books. So, grit you teeth, hang in there, and enjoy.
don't be put off by the Audible for Kids designation. this is a poignant story that explores humanity from many angles for listeners of any age. the audio presentation is superb.
I had never read a Neil Gaiman book before, but I'm definitely hooked now. I would listen on my way to work and couldn't wait for the day to end so I could listen again!
I loved this, I was very sorry when it ended. Wonderful narration and interesting storyline and characters, I really enjoyed every word. I hope this becomes a series.
Like the Harry Potter books, "The Graveyard Book" is one of those page-turners that parents will read to their children at bedtime and then secretly keep reading after the kids are asleep. Audible should really consider a 6-star scale for Gaiman; he's that good. Plus, he's a great narrator.
