The Graveyard Book

2213661Well it’s a good time of year for this one! Neil Gaiman’s riff on The Jungle Book but instead of jungle animals a little boy is raised by the inhabitants of a graveyard.  Mostly spirits, but an interesting vampire as well.

For all it’s creepy trappings it’s an incredibly fun book to read.  Goodreads group member Cliff wants to know what method you will consume this title this month?  There’s the book of course, with interesting illustrations.  Then there’s the audiobook read by the author himself.  Either way, I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading (or rereading) this future classic. When you do, stop by the Goodreads group and join us for the discussion.

UPDATE: 12/2/14

Well the discussion on Goodreads never really got off the ground but I hope you all enjoyed the book.  I wanted to add a list of “If You Like This, Then You Might Like…”
