TBR Tuesdaythe Graveyard Book
Author: Neil Gaiman

Purchased: 17 January 2012

Review: Neil Gaiman either seems to be an author you love or an author you hate – but honestly, I can’t really say that I fall into either camp. I like his writing and how he weaves the fantasy in his stories; but I always feel as though there is something missing when I’m done. The premise of the story reminded me in part of the movie BoxTrolls that I had just watched a couple of weeks ago, but rather than trolls taking in the child, it was ghosts in a graveyard. The story was much more of coming of age/finding your place in the world – and there were some parallels to Narnia in places (the part where the children get too old to return – or in this instance see the ghosts) being one. The author himself was the narrator of the audiobook and I think that added to my enjoyment of the story – I don’t know if I necessarily would have stuck it out, if I had just been reading the book. This is the second book I’ve read by Neil Gaiman (the first being The Ocean at the End of the Road) and unsure about where to go next…does anyone have any recommendations?

I’m slowing plugging away at Mt TBR – how about you?

    I’m trying to plug away at my Mt. TBR. So my plan is to mix old and new. Right now I am reading Written In Red by Anne Bishop. It is pulling me in. I love her world.
