The Graveyard Book: Full-Cast Production

Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead. There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack - who has already killed Bod's family…

    Story
    "Splendid and Splendider!"

    Since Neil Gaiman's own excellent reading of this was already in my library, I hesitated before adding the dramatized version of "The Graveyard Book." How glad I am that I went ahead and used a credit!

    This man has written lots of memorable books, but "The Graveyard Book" stands out. There's a lot of love in here, and it is wonderful to hear the author explain a little about that at the end of the recording. No one will be surprised to hear that the work is quite important personally to Mr. Gaiman - it shows in every chapter.

    There's a lot that is very special in this book regardless of how it's experienced - I have read the hard copy and enjoyed both audios. The characters - living, dead or somewhere in between - are absolutely real and absolutely unforgettable. The episodic nature of the narrative not only reflects its admitted source, Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book," but it makes for excellent reading aloud in segments - sharing with children or adults. (I imagine even the cats and dogs listening in during an evening reading will love it.)

    The fine actors involved in this production all obviously enjoyed performing this for us. If you've already read it, consider getting this edition as well. "The Graveyard Book" simply cannot read or heard too many times!

    One personal note - my young grandchildren live in a house across from an historical cemetery. They play there and ride their bikes and look for angel headstones. Before very long, I hope to introduce them to the world of "The Graveyard Book." I think they will feel quite at home in its pages.

    "Pure Magic !"

    I loved this book so much! It's pure magic ! Silas, Nobody Owens, the ghosts, the ghouls, the atmosphere in the Graveyard, the Man Jack, Miss Lupescu! Oh for the Death's pants! You have to read it, if you haven't! I will love Neil Gaiman forever.

    “Step and turn, and walk and stay,
    Now we dance the Macabray.” - chapter five. My favourite.

    This full cast performance is exceptional, it took me there and it painted my world with caressing shadows and suggestive fantasies. Amazing production !

    I thought I'd miss Neil's voice for the whole book but I adored the full cast performance so much! And the music for the dance macabre was perfection.

    "Neil Gaiman at his best"
    What made the experience of listening to The Graveyard Book: Full-Cast Production the most enjoyable?

    The topic was innocuous enough that I thought it was a light read. But the author wove the story so well that I was very engrossed in the story.


    What other book might you compare The Graveyard Book: Full-Cast Production to and why?

    I might think to find an audiobook version of the Good Omen.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The voices used were a great match to the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, this was a book I had wanted to listen to all in one sitting.

    "I loved it!"

    But Neil spoils it by making Cylus whiped scarlets memory and makes cylus leave. Apart from those things it's great.

    "Great performances"

    A delightful, slightly dark fantasy for both children and adults. The story is a bit episodic and therefore somewhat disjointed, like a series of short stories with reoccurring characters. Wonderful narration.

    Story
    "Creepy, but good fantasy YA novel."

    What can I say? Neil just makes storytelling look easy. This is a YA novel about a baby that escapes his family's murder and is protected and raised by ghosts of the dead in a graveyard. Creepy premise, but Neil makes it work.

    Fantastic narration.

    Story
    "The Shadow World!"
    If you could sum up The Graveyard Book: Full-Cast Production in three words, what would they be?

    A book for all ages!People might say this is a children's book but I dare see even audlts would enjoy this book. The performances of all the actors was superb.It probably helped that the voices had a British accent.


    What other book might you compare The Graveyard Book: Full-Cast Production to and why?

    As was mentioned by the author himself, this book drew a lot of inspiration fro Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book".


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The sense of excitement, of dread that are brought by the music and sounds generated. those can't be matched by simply reading the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.Definitely. But I didn't get to do that because I wanted to savor the experience and prolong the enjoyment. i will probably listen to this audiobook again after I have finished the other books I have lined up at present.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the most enjoyable books I have had the pleasure of listening to and and I would encourage other people to listen to the audiobook version or read the story.
