The original hardcover edition of a perennial favorite, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, which has sold more than one million copies and is the only novel to win both the Newbery Medal and the Carnegie Medal.

Bod is an unusual boy who inhabits an unusual place—he's the only living resident of a graveyard. Raised from infancy by the ghosts, werewolves, and other cemetery denizens, Bod has learned the antiquated customs of his guardians' time as well as their ghostly teachings—such as the ability to Fade so mere mortals cannot see him.

Can a boy raised by ghosts face the wonders and terrors of the worlds of both the living and the dead?

The Graveyard Book is the winner of the Newbery Medal, the Carnegie Medal, the Hugo Award for best novel, the Locus Award for Young Adult novel, the American Bookseller Association’s “Best Indie Young Adult Buzz Book,” a Horn Book Honor, and Audio Book of the Year.

    The graveyard book is amazing. The cliffhangers and suspense throughout the book keep you on the edge of your seat, and you are always wondering what will happen next. Bod is a amazing character and it is amazing to watch him grow and go past and endure his hardships with him. Silas is also a perfect character which you are always wishing he was in the scene and wanting to read about him constantly. also i like 69

              AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! i love it I love it I love it. I love the dialogue off this book and everything about it. If you read this book I swear you will love it. (hopefully) This book was a bit hard to follow in the begging (first 20 pages or so) but maybe it was just me sides that it was a very interesting book. I got lost in the fairytale of this book. Not only is the book about ghost theres goals and witches and all that stuff. If you love fairy tales or exciting worlds you will love this book. The Graveyard Book had me on the edge of my seat. Every time i could I tried to read this book. The suspense and mystery in this book was great. I love the author. THIS IS A MUST READ BOOK (ALSO GO BUY IT)!!!!!

                I this this book is interesting. From it's story to it's character, everything is special. The setting of talking to ghost and the mysteries in the graveyard attract me very deep. It will let you want to read more to discover the graveyard and each ghost and people in the book. First time you may think this book is weird, but as long as you read this book, you will starting to read more and more!

                  I found it very hard to get into this book. It is very boring and non-mysterious unlike it's title.

                    This book is a great book for suspense and scares. It also leaves you quite emotional.

                      I read this book I while ago and it is still one of my favorite books. I love the suspense and the thrill of the book I have been trying to get my teacher to read it but he doesn't think he will like it. The author did a great job and this book fits all kinds of readers. I know it is a long book but I couldn't put it down I finished in a few days and read it again after. I own the book and I have read it countless times and It still has as much thrill as the first time I read the book. I recommend as a must buy and a amazing class read. A little bit of mystery and a lot of thrill can go a long way.
