The Graveyard Book was like a darker combination of Harry Potter and the Jungle Book. A coming of age story where a small boy Nobody Owens finds himself orphaned and being raised by a graveyard full of ghosts and 1 possible vampire (this is never really made clear) while being hunted by an assassin with a keen sense of smell. I was not a big fan of the way the book was written, meaning each chapter was in itself a short story that followed the same general timeline. Also, I wished he would have spent more time with the ghosts themselves, I would have liked to have learned more about each of them. Overall though, I loved the story and can't wait to dive into another of Gaiman's books.
