Very cute book. It reminded me of old school fairytales and it was a welcome change in my reading-list. It's a shame the drawings by Dave McKean were not really an addition to the story.
The Graveyard Book has the same Gaiman-atmosphere (and loveable characters!) as some of his most precious short stories, like October in the Chair (from '[b:fragile things|16788|Fragile Things Short Fictions and Wonders|Neil Gaiman|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/413KcOdeB9L._SL75_.jpg|3262727]') ( )

If "Children's Gothic" is not a genre it should be, and this endearing little collection of short stories about a child growing up among crumbling tombstones with supernatural hosts for friends would fit right in. Influenced by the works of Rudyard Kipling and Ray Bradbury, Gaiman weaves just the right amount of whimsy and the macabre into these bedtime tales treating readers to high adventure, subterranean skullduggery, and warm familial ties (both alive and deceased) with a bittersweet ending that begs for a sequel.

Enjoyable, but both in tone and content very similar to [b:The Ocean at the End of the Lane|15783514|The Ocean at the End of the Lane|Neil Gaiman|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1351914778s/15783514.jpg|21500681], which was better. ( )

A wonderful coming-of-age story of a young boy raised in a graveyard after the murder of his family at a tender age. Friendship, loyalty, kindness, and the difficulties of growing up fill up the pages of this narrative that includes ghosts and otherworld creatures. ( )
  MyBook5etM3 | Jan 7, 2024 |
This is a book about Nobody. Nobody Owens in particular. It is a story about growing up, a name found, change experienced, and life yet to live. Most of the characters are dead- in fact, Nobody's parents are murdered before even page five. Bod (short for Nobody) is raised in the graveyard by the dead; a ghost couple adopts him and a vampire becomes his guardian.

You would think a book so full of death would be depressing. Rather, it was very uplifting. Many of the conversations Bod has with his graveyard family were handled whimsically and honestly. Death is simply something that is inevitable, but right now the living's most important worry is to live. ( )

Gaiman writes with charm and humor, and again he has a real winner.

Like a bite of dark Halloween chocolate, this novel proves rich, bittersweet and very satisfying.
 
This is fine work, from beginning to end, and the best bedtime story read-aloud material I've encountered in a long time. Can't wait until my daughter's old enough to read this to.

When the chilling moments do come, they are as genuinely frightening as only Gaiman can make them, and redeem any shortcomings.
 
While “The Graveyard Book” will entertain people of all ages, it’s especially a tale for children. Gaiman’s remarkable cemetery is a place that children more than anyone would want to visit. They would certainly want to look for Silas in his chapel, maybe climb down (if they were as brave as Bod) to the oldest burial chamber, or (if they were as reckless) search for the ghoul gate. Children will appreciate Bod’s occasional mistakes and bad manners, and relish his good acts and eventual great ones. The story’s language and humor are sophisticated, but Gaiman respects his readers and trusts them to understand.
