The Perfect Ending
I think the aspect of reading The Graveyard Book that took me most by surprise is that I did not feel sad or wistful at the end, which is my normal reaction when closing the final leaf page on characters I have come to care about so much. I believe that the acceptance of change that all of the Graveyard took in such good spirit - oh, dear - from Silas and Mr. and Mrs. Owens, to Liza and Bod himself, is why I was able to accept the end of my pleasure in reading it so much.
And hats off to illustrator Dave McKean, as well. It was a perfect marriage of visual and writing styles.
I'm so thankful for Neil Gaiman. I have not found him before now and this book really gave me a wonderful journey. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I have to agree, it was a brilliant ending, the whole book was brilliant I really enjoyed it. When I finished the book I just felt so contented.

Neverwhere is the next read, can it get any better???

I've reviewed the book (and many other YA books) as a feature on the blog of my two-month twitter tale:

If you enjoy my work half as much as Neil's you'll want to follow my pirate tale through twitter, here:

It was just as good as The Jungle Book and the best parts of the Harry Potter series.
