The Graveyard Book: my review

Finished book review by: Samantha

Book written by: Neil Gaiman
Total number of pages: 307

Genre: Horror/paranormal
My rating: ****, really liked it

A brief summary of my book:
Nobody Owens’ parents and sister are murdered by “the man Jack”. The orphan is taken in and raised by ghosts, however it is still dangerous for him.The murderer is looking to finish his job.

Three words that describe my book:
Mysterious, Suspenseful, funny

The kind of person I’d recommend this book to:
I would recommend this book to somebody who likes mysterious and slightly weird stories. Although this book has many dark themes, Neil Gaiman manages to incorporate humor into the novel, making it enjoyable for somebody who has a quirky sense of humor. They should, of course, also enjoy ghost stories, as that is a heavy and consistent theme throughout the book.
