    When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard? Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.

    Tim says: "Wonderful story, brilliant writing and narration"
    "Narrator surprise"
    Overall

    I was astonished when I finished listening to this & realised that Neil Gaiman had narrated his own work. I was hooked from the first moment both because of the way Gaiman uses language but also his wonderful narration. It is hard to know how much I would have enjoyed the book if I had read it but listening to this book was the most pleasurable audiobook experience I have had so far.
    I think what made it so good is that Neil Gaiman immeasurably enhances the characters with his vocalisations. On hearing him utter a single sentence by Bod or Silas or any of the other characters, you immediately get a sense of who they are. It is the happy result of a fantastic author who obviously knows his characters inside out and also happens to be a first class narrator
