If you are looking for American Gods revisited, this is not it. If you are looking for a good YA story, this is a good option.
It's a turnabout novel -- instead of ghosts haunting the living. The living is "haunting" the graveyard. But all the demons and ghosts are simply a backdrop to a coming of age story.
And, BTW, the author does a nice job of narrating.
A touching, charming tale of death and life, full of wit and magic. The plot is worn and familiar, but Gaiman's attention to detail in his prose, as well as his beautiful reading, make the story as comfortable as a blanket on a chilly evening.
It was an OK, entertaining story but not the great read everyone else is raving about. Middle of the pack at best.
Neil Gaiman at his masterful best - both as author and narrator.
May be a little intense for children under 12, but enjoyable for anyone over that age. Themes of love, redemption, courage, and loyalty.
As author and narrator, Mr. Gaiman does an outstanding job. This is the second book of his that I have listened to and he has become one of my favorite authors.
