I listened to Neil Gaiman's reading of the Graveyard book on my computer last night. I got to disk 6 and could not stop listening until the end, got to sleep at 2:30am.
He did a marvelous reading.
The plot was brilliant, those old graveyards have so much artistry and emotion in them, I love that he created something out of that.
Felt very sorry for Bod though, losing his family. The beginning was so heart-breaking that I almost stopped listening to it.
There was a lot of loss in this book, I guess it's realistic. It felt like a book for grown-ups, those of us who start to see our friends and relatives die.
