The Graveyard Book

The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman

It's more of a 3.5 book than a 3, especially towards the end.To be honest, I haven't made up my mind about this book. The idea for it sounded really awesome but I was completly bored for half of the book.

 

The initial chapters didn't do that much for me and the characters I enjoyed reading about (Silas and Scarlett) were absent quite a long time.

 

I have to say that the last few chapters were indredibly good. I loved the interaction between the girls and Bod and how the events unfolded. There was a lot going on and I simply couldn't put it down.

 

I also appreciate that they decided to include Gaiman's acceptance speech as part of the extras of the book. I quite enjoyed reading about his relation with books and his writing process.
