The Graveyard Book, a review by Joza

Title:  The Graveyard Book
Author: Neil Gaiman
Format: Hardcover 
Price: $17.99

At the beginning of the book a murderer is killing a family. The main character, Nobody, is the only member of the family that survives. He makes his way to a graveyard and is raised there. At the end of the book, Nobody confronts the man that killed his family. 

Nobody is a young boy who can do things that normally only ghosts can do. His major motivation for the last part of the book is finding the man who killed his family. The main character Nobody, “Bod,” becomes more mature as he grows up in the graveyard and goes from being scared of the man who killed his family to wanting revenge on him. 

This book teaches you to live life to the fullest because you only get one chance to do it. 

It is a children’s fantasy novel. 

The graveyard book is an amazing read. I was completely absorbed in it the entire time I was reading it. I really didn’t like the ending to this book -- it seemed too abrupt like it should have kept going. I would enjoy reading other books by this author.

The cover of the book is very interesting and very cool-looking. 

This book has almost no violence I don’t think this book is inappropriate for anyone of any age.

My rating for the book is 4.5 chocolate bars.
