Morning! I'm off to teach a class this morning, but I wanted to share my review of The Graveyard Book before I disappear for a few hours. I was completely charmed and won over by this book, and Neil Gaiman is slowly but surely growing on me after some hits and misses.

Read the review at Bibliobuffet.


  1. Thanks for the review - I'd like to read this one.

  2. I'm so glad to see you loved this one as much as I did. :)

  3. I'm so pleased you liked it! Of course now that it's finally out I feel like I have nothing to look forward to - no idea when Neil Gaiman's releasing another new book.

  4. I keep meaning to read more by him! I've heard only good reviews about this one though.

  5. Glad you liked the review, Bermudaonion! It's a great book.

    It was fantabulous, Tammy!

    Jenny, I know, right! I'm anxiously awaiting his next release now.

    Andrea, of the limited Gaiman stuff I've read, this one is definitely the best!

  6. It was really good wasn't it? I'm glad I found an ebook copy to save buying both hardbacks. I will get both paperbacks when they are out.

    On a side note check out my blog for the Manga Challenge. It would be great if you signed up.

  7. I've got this one on my wish list. Seems like I'm often way behind the curve, but it appears to be worth waiting for.

  8. Great review, the very last line you wrote captured exactly the feeling I had about this book :)

    I would love to see more Gaiman books like this one - a book all about Silas would be the cat's pajamas :)

  9. Great review Andish! I'm so glad you loved this one. It was such a great book. I can't wait to reread it again and again.

  10. Thanks for the heads up about the Manga challenge, Rhinoa! I'll definitely be purchasing The Graveyard Book for my permanent collection. Not sure when...but I WILL have it!

    Nancy, it is sooo worth waiting for! I hope you like it as much as I did when you get around to it.

    Joanne, a book about Silas is a great idea! I just loved him.

    Heatheroo, it is VERY re-readable! I wanted to start over immediately when I finished it.

  11. A good review. At a guess as to why you don't like American Gods, it sounds like you mostly like his young adult ones. Which is hardly surprising, given that it's you.

    Of his novels aimed at adults, possibly Anansi Boys is the closest in style to his younger ones, so you might find you like that.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! Blogger has been a beast lately, so I hope you do not have any troubles leaving your thoughts.
