Synopsis (from Goodreads): After the grisly murder of his entire family, a toddler wanders into a graveyard where the ghosts and other supernatural residents agree to raise him as one of their own.
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 . . .
Beloved master storyteller Neil Gaiman returns with a luminous new novel for the audience that embraced his New York Times bestselling modern classic Coraline. Magical, terrifying, and filled with breathtaking adventures, The Graveyard Book is sure to enthrall readers of all ages.
This book was amazing in every way. The characters, the setting, the atmosphere and overall suspense, all of it was on point and executed to perfection. Mr. Gaiman had gotten the idea almost twenty years before writing it and needless to say the wait was definitely worth it because what we've been given is an instant classic. The Graveyard Book was endearing, poignant and profound in many ways. Well done. I loved it.
