The Graveyard Book is yet another Book written by the Great Neil Gaiman. Yes my dearest reader you surely have noticed that i am working myself through his catalogue right now xD.
The Book is a homage to the Jungle Book, telling a similar Story. The Protagonist is the Boy Bod. But Bod is just his Nickname as he was named Nobody Owens by his adoptive Parents who raise him living at a graveyard. Where he got protection from the mysterious murderer of his birth parents.
It’s a fun and spooky Story that can be enjoyed by young and old alike. It tells different short episodes in the life of Bod until he comes of age. It’s a Book about horror’s, mysteries, bully’s, standing up for oneself and the trust and love we but in our real Family and Friends.
While playing in present day England we get to know many different Monsters or rather characters of Mythology, like Ghosts, Vampires, Werewolfs, Ghouls and old celtic curses and even a Manisfestation of Death.
With that the Graveyard Book is a great Story full of adventure and Mystery.
