The Graveyard Book

The Graveyard Book

Gaiman. (2008). The graveyard book. New York, NY:  HarperCollins Pub.

The Graveyard Book is a hauntingly fun book about a boy named Nobody Owens.  After his family is murdered, he finds himself being raised by all the inhabitants of a graveyard.  He must learn to live in the world of the living and the dead...

I listened to the audio version of this book on a road trip.  It is one of the best ones I've heard.  I don't really love audio books because I can't go back and reread when I need to.  Usually, the voice gets too monotonous for me too.  Not this one though - fabulous - and it is done by the author himself!
