Neil Gaiman is a Genius! That's all I can say really. The story is captivating, and ingenious the point of view is something that I would have never even thought of, and to top it off you have the author himself reading it.
Just... meh. I really wanted to like this novel but it's just sort of... meh. I did find myself caring about the young protagonist in this childhood fantasy and it definitely had it's interesting moments, but I found the end unsatisfying and the overall story just... meh.
Neil Gaiman is a master storyteller, and this book is no exception. I almost didn't choose this audiobook, because it was much shorter than I like, but, in retrospect, I found the story much richer than most books twice or three times the size! Thank you, Neil, for another wonderful and heart-opening adventure.
Mother of twins. No time to read, started listening to books 'n changing diapers at the same time. Been in love with audible ever since
the climax had me huddled under the blankets for safety.
I liked this book very much.
I am not sure what I can say other than I can not wait to share this with my children. We have listened and re-listened to the Graveyard Book countless times, and I am sure this will go into our re-listen rotation as well. Lovely lessons and lovely voice,both as a writer and reader. Thank you, thank you!!!
I expected bigger more far reaching adventure. And what started the bad turn of events (opal miner?) wasn't explained as the motivation satisfactorily.
