The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman is the story of Owens, Nobody Owens. The baby named Nobody walks away from home after hearing a crash in the house. He never realizes it, but there is a murderer in his home. After walking up the hill, Nobody Owens stumbles upon a graveyard. When Nobody crawls in, he’s in for a big surprise: ghosts, and ghouls, and witches to be found.
When the ghost parents find out that they can’t take on the responsibility of raising the boy, Silas (his guardian) says, “It’ll take a graveyard.”
This graphic novel is very unique. There is a full word book, but it doesn’t have many pictures. This book is all comics so it is most likely a better choice for a person who likes not as much reading. The real book is only one, but the comic book is split into two books.
These books are unique because the first book is split into 5 sections and the second book is 3 sections. Each section had its own illustrator. This makes each section have a similar, but different look to the characters. From reading both books, I would have to say that you have to read the second book is you read the first book because the first book leaves you hanging.
These books are interesting because they have a lot of adventures, but always turn up back at the graveyard. My only warning is that is has some bloody pages, but otherwise I thought this book was a great one. It really keeps you on the edge of your seat.
So what are you waiting for? Pick up this wonderful book and have a great time reading about the stories of Nobody Owens in The Graveyard Book Volume 1 and Volume 2 by Neil Gaiman.
