Sincerely Sunday (4)

Sincerely Sunday is a new weekly meme that I will be hosting here at On The Shelf that will be like a micro-review or blurb of a book.  Anyone can participate, and you can leave a link to yours in the comments or, if you do not have a blog, you can just leave a comment with your Sincerely Sunday choice.  All you have to do is:

*Pick a book, any book.  It can be new, ARC, old, or one you read 10 years ago, as long as you have read it.
*Tell us the title and author.
*Tell us what made you read this book.
*Give us a short, sincere opinion on the book you chose.

My choice for this week is:

 The Graveyard Book
Neil Gaiman

I wanted to read this book because I had read other Neil Gaiman books and really enjoyed them.

Nobody Owens is a human boy whose family was murdered by a horrible man named Jack when he was just a toddler.  Nobody found his way to a cemetery where he was raised by ghostly parents and had to learn the ways of the cemetery.  This book is a darker novel, but a very fun read with a fantastic world created by Mr. Gaiman.  The creativity for this novel is wonderful as is the plot.  I listened to this one as an audiobook, and loved the fact that Mr. Gaiman performed it himself.
