"Great adult/young adult book"
Loved the story, quite dark for a childrens book. My critism is I don't like music on the audio books. Sometimes the narrators voice grated on me. But glad I bought this one.
This is a wonderful story, and very well narrated by Neil Gaiman himself. It seems advantageous that the author is reading it, as he knows exactly how all the characters and names ought to sound, and he understands his own phrasings. Bod's adventures while growing up in a graveyard are both imaginative and exciting. I would thoroughly recommend this audiobook
This is marketed as a Young Adult book but it is also a wonderful adult fantasy that had me lying awake hours past my usual sleep time to hear the ending. It is read by Gaiman himself, really well,and it means that you know that the interpretation of the characters is correct (something you cannot always be sure of). A terrific listen.
"Great story. Awful music"
Enjoyed the story. loved the narration. hated the music. why is it there? so irritating!
"What a treat!"
Such a lovely story for dark winter nights - great for adults and children alike.
Great storyline easy pace really enjoyed it sets nicely another hopefully !!! New adventures to come many possibilities
"I couldn't Finish it"
Although a very imaginative book I couldn't finish it. Maybe would have enjoyed it if I was 12/13. To me this would be a far better film than it is a book and I do believe that Disney have bought the rights to it, I will look forward to watching in a few years time.
lovely idea and told is a wonderful way. still not replacing my favourite neil gaiman book but very good. I think second time around this book will be better because I will know where it is going and therefore able to take in the wonderful way that neil gaiman writes .
if you like his work then yes try this one out.
"The Graveyard Book"
A really mind provoking read by getting your imagination to see and feel what Bod sees.
From a tiny boy through to a young man, you travel the years with him.
l love a book that ends with tears and yet the happiness that goes with it and the uncertainty of what the future holds.
l get this book on a whim and l am so pleased that l did.
"Like being a child again"
Good performance by the author, slightly macabre like a Tim Burton film but pleasantly comfortable.
