More Books

The other weekend while browsing through various comic book stores I came across this book "The Graveyard Book". Now it wasn't the title that caught my eye, rather it was the name of the author Neil Gaiman. I've read a couple of his books when I worked in a bookstore and really enjoyed them So I figured I'd give this one a try. For those of you who don't know Neil is also the author of Coreline which was also made into a feature film a few years ago. He is also married to one of my favourite musicians Amanda Palmer.

Now I'm not going to tell you what happens but here is the synopsis if your interested in reading it. Needless to say its a great dark read and I loved it.

"It takes a graveyard to raise a child. Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, being raised by ghosts, with a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead. There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy—an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, he will be in danger from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod's family."
