The Graveyard Book

Neil Gaiman is a superstar. Well I haven't read this book but I have it. I'm sort of saving it. It's the last Gaiman novel I have. Aw man!

You would find that it's not unlike Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book. Bod is to the Graveyard Book as Mowgli is to the Jungle Book. The major difference is that Bod is raised by the undead in a graveyard, instead of by animals in a jungle. That's sort of the gist things.

Gaiman goes on tours and does readings, one chapter per place. After the readings, the one chapter of the night, he gives a long Q&A. In a way, they're sort of giving the book away because all the readings are filmed! Click here to hear the book, read to you by the superstar himself, chapter by chapter.
