The Graveyard BookThe Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

I follow Neil on Twitter and Tumbler and I read his blog. I read his various posts when he was writing this and when it came out and when it won awards. I somehow managed to remain at least 80% spoiler free and I had NO idea what this book would actually be like. EVEN THOUGH I realized as I was reading it that Neil had totally given it away in a subtle way more than once. I don't want to spoil it for anybody else because it was a lot of fun following the twists of the story and situation so I'll leave it at this:

If you haven't read it I recommend it. It isn't my favorite Gaiman but he is just that good that he's written so much good stuff that something this good only comes in around 5th. It's a very compelling story. I picked it up from the bookmobile after work, stopped to get something to eat on the way home and started reading it, got home and finished the whole thing before I went to sleep. A lot of the pleasure I got was slowly realizing how this book connected with one of my other favorite books by a different author and starting to actively make comparisons between them.

If you have read it I'd love to discuss it with you but please use big spoiler warnings or Rot13 for your comments.
