    My thoughts about overall book is here So I’ll talk about individual chapters and their high and low points (aren’t much) and illustration, without revealing too much specific information. The plot is simple; a toddler’s family was murdered and somehow he ended up living in a graveyard. So... Chapter 1 This chapter proves that "Being Human” isn’t everything.

The plot is simple; a toddler’s family was murdered and somehow he ended up living in a graveyard. So... Chapter 1 This chapter proves that "Being Human” isn’t everything. You need to act like one and if you have a kind soul then you can definitely make the whole humanity proud, even if you have left the human body ages ago. Does it make any sense? Well! Read the book, you’ll know what I mean. Now the best panel of the chapter is this – "Who is she”?? Oh! No worries, you’ll meet her at the end :P Chapter 2 Now this is such a cute chapter that I wanted to read this twice :P But I had some hangry people to appease, so.... This chapter reminds me of the kid I used to be, and makes me realize that how much I have changed and I’ll never be the same again. That was the best version of me and I sometime miss that kid. A lot of nonsense again I know :P but that’s what I felt after reading this chapter. The Best panels from the chapter – As they say "Ignorance is a bliss” but innocence is even better :) Chapter 3 Probably my least favorite chapter but this one had a new cool and mysterious character. I wish there was more information about her. But I guess this was the chapter in which bod really evolved. Here’s the favorite panel from the chapter Chapter 4 Sometimes the tiniest wishes are the greatest She only wanted a headstone and what she got at last was "Not bad, not bad at all” A real heart touching chapter again :) Here’s the best panel from the chapter Chapter 5 The most intriguing chapter in my opinion, it made me real curious and the ultimate answer I got was really satisfying. I won’t spoil it by revealing anything. A unique phenomenon and beautifully portrayed (words and illustrations both) Here’s the favorite panel Chapter 6 This first frame is my favorite from this chapter, which is all about chasing your dreams. The events leading to them can be a bit disheartening or confusing sometimes, but if your wishes are true you’ll always achieve them. Always Chapter 7 & 8 They both are related and unlike other chapters, they can not be read alone as a short story. But they really make the book a real good one. The end isn’t exactly what I expected but that’s exactly how life is. Once it sunken in, I really appreciated the way Gaiman finished it. He is a true genius and this is a marvel of a book. Here’s the panel. I can’t share any other just to avoid spoiler :) Last but not least, a big thanks to both my BRs for the lovely company. I couldn’t ask for more :)

    ”If you dare nothing then when the day is over, nothing is all you will have gained” I read The Graveyard Book a few years back and found it unique and delightful. When I found that it was adapted to a Graphic Novel, I couldn’t resist. This has all the charm of the book, with the added bonus of a visual guide. Each chapter is illustrated by different illustrators, whom kept to the same theme. But the individuality is there; making this again something so very unique that comparison is absurd and i ”If you dare nothing then when the day is over, nothing is all you will have gained” I read The Graveyard Book a few years back and found it unique and delightful.

I have The Sandman Collection to tackle next…. Can’t wait!

    This was largely the same story as the book, though somewhat abridged, which meant some degree of characterization and the exact events were lost in translation. But I enjoyed the art (and was only somewhat flummoxed by the changing artists and styles). The core of the story was there.

    I experienced this story originally in audiobook form and adored it then. Adapted into comics by P. Craig Russell & Co., The Graveyard Book is just as gripping as before. The slightly different rendering of Bod and his adoptive family in each chapter is consistently refreshing, much like the adaptation as a whole. They all share ties to the similarly evocative and often unsettling Little Nemo in Slumberland comics. I'd recommend this to anyone who would like something rooted in tragedy but still b I experienced this story originally in audiobook form and adored it then. Adapted into comics by P.

    It's not that I didn't like the story or the atmosphere of the Graveyard. But unfortunately I was pretty bored most of the time while reading. - I started this in summer! So I had to force myself to finish it.. and what better evening than on Halloween. ;) - In the end it became better when the action of the finale started. I'm not sure how much I like that every chapter is imagined by another artist. Maybe the whole thing would feel more fluent and complete if everything was done by the same.

    I didn't think I could love this book more, but the graphic novel version proved me wrong. Neil Gaiman is a magnificent storyteller. I will never get tired of living in his worlds and his words.

    This was my first graphic novel and my second Gaiman book and I pretty much read it all in one go. Except for sleeping breaks, obvs. The story was super cute and interesting and grabbed me instantly. The protagonist, Bod, is a very clever boy from the first chapter on. Although his experiences are very limited and he struggles with the whole ghost/human being story (I like how casual that sounds) he still has enough room to grow and develop.

Although his experiences are very limited and he struggles with the whole ghost/human being story (I like how casual that sounds) he still has enough room to grow and develop. The story was almost fairytale like. The setting and style were, as usual with Neil Gaiman's novels, totally different. In my experience, Gaiman's writing seems to be for children, but the story, although it may feature young protagonists, isn't. It's fun for young adults and adults who like a little touch of melancholy in terms of reading a book reminding them of being a child and their childhood in general. I also liked the unused possibility of a romantic subplot because those usually annoy me. I don't really have the knowledge to judge the pictures but I have to say, I was suprised how much they influenced my reading. I didn't look at them before reading, I incorporated it into my reading process and sometimes, I have to admit, I even jumped at one or two of them. It was a pretty cool experience and I think that I'll

    Despite the dark initial premise (a baby's family is killed by a mysterious assassin) I found this book really charming. Most of Book One's chapters focus on different characters who "live" in the graveyard, how they mix among each other. There is also the child's guardian Silas, who is most likely a vampire, and a lady who teaches the child, who turns out to be a werewolf (or Hound of God).

I can see how the original book won so many awards - finding out about the different denizens of the graveyard is compelling, and seeing Nobody grow up in the graveyard is really interesting too. But I'm glad to have read this version, because the art is this is so beautiful. I highly recommend this version for that reason.

    OMG I loved this version of Gaiman's dark story I am loving graphic novels at the minute and this one was so readable. I could see many young readers reading this one then reading the novel version too. Dark and a bit disturbing. Nightmarish but so well written with excellent characters.

    Nobody “Bod” Owens is an orphaned infant left in the hands of graveyard spirits after his whole family is murdered. The Graveyard Book chronicles Bod’s coming-of-age as he grows up in the graveyard, being nurtured and taught by the dead. (It sounds morbid, but it’s really not that bad.) I thoroughly enjoyed this story. My only criticism is there are dozens of characters between both volumes, and I found it difficult to keep track of them. Albeit they don’t all serve the same significance and it’s Nobody “Bod” Owens is an orphaned infant left in the hands of graveyard spirits after his whole family is murdered.

I’ve never read any Neil Gaiman before and I didn’t know what to expect, but I thought this graphic novel adaption was a nice way to ease myself into his work. I will be reading more from him in the future.

    Gaiman and Russell are each amazing talents in their own rights, and they bring out the very best in each other in collaboration. The array of first-rate illustrators evokes the best of Gaiman’s Sandman. Can not recommend this highly enough.

    Such an intriguing story. Finished this in one day, not hard with it being a graphic novel but I couldn't stop reading. I loved this version but I would still love to read the actual book.

A mysterious gang brutally murders a family, however an infant child escapes to a nearby graveyard. The ghosts decide to protect and raise him as one of their own. Since he was adopted by Master and Mistress Owens who always wanted a child when they were alive, they name him Nobody Owens, Bod for short. Being raised by ghosts, he learns their skills; fading away, passing thru walls, seeing in perfect darkness. They try sending him to school to pass as a normal boy, but things don't go well. The gang members realize that one member of the family is still alive and track him down. Holding one of his class mates hostage is probably not a good idea. I was ready to give this audiobook a solid 5, up until the final disc. He never learns his real name which the gang knew, and he doesn't get the girl because his abilities frighten her. But, still a good audiobook.

    The Graveyard Book is a graphic novelization of Neil Gaiman's book of the same name. The story follows a boy named "Nobody Owens" who is orphaned as an infant and is raised by ghosts in a graveyard.

The book deals with the supernatural in an interesting way as our protagonist grows up with figures that would usually be frightening to children. This book fits in with my view of YA Lit since it follows a young protagonist as he grows up and it deals with issues such as loneliness, belonging, and identity. These are all YA themes and things that our students can be dealing with every day. I think that the main character, Nobody, and his caretaker, Silas, will definitely be a draw for the adolescent male reader demographic. Due to the themes that the book deals with, I would say that this could also be attractive for the female reader demographic as well. I think this book is teachable in a classroom when you look at the literary devices that the book uses and the structure of the plot. Character development is also a possibility here, since we follow Nobody as he grows older. This book can see placements in curricula due to its merits as a story, and its appeal for YA readers. It is also on the ALA 2015 Great Graphic Novels for Teens list, so its merits as a YA text of quality and substance have been recognized.

    It had only been a couple years since I first read The Graveyard Book; however, while reading this graphic novel I realized I forgot nearly everything. The nature of this story is very episodic which allows for amazing re-readability. Adding to this idea are the different artists inking each of the 8 chapters (there may be some overlap with the final chapter). The art is fantastic and combines the prose of Gaiman with images that do not overwhelm the imagination but enhance it.

The art is fantastic and combines the prose of Gaiman with images that do not overwhelm the imagination but enhance it. Unlike some other stories, The Graveyard Book easily adapts to a universal image which matches the world I once only saw in my head. That being said, I'm not sure I'd recommend this graphic novel over the original novel. Sometimes I felt like I was missing a key detail that I possibly glossed over. While everything is answered and has a payoff, the answers are often not in depth (this may be true in the novel as well, I simply cannot remember). These are minor criticisms though. The story is so fantastic and unique and invokes many different emotions while reading for all ages and backgrounds. The Graveyard Book, graphic or otherwise, is a quintessential middle-grade novel that middle school children and adults should enjoy. Just be advised, graveyard is in the title, so be prepared for some death and violence, particularly in the first few pages.

    I almost liked this graphic novel adaptation as much as the original novel (and considering how I usually feel about adaptations, that's saying something). Being able to see a few scenes makes it a bit darker than the novel, I think, but I quite enjoyed this. The only problem is that a lot of the discoveries you made throughout the novel is lost here, and details that were more subtle in the book are thrown in your face in the adaptation.

"Not alive and not dead" would have fit that, for example. But in the book, you know from the first moment you see him. Everything screams "vampire" with his pointy ears, cape, etc. (hide spoiler)] And the fact that Miss Lupescu (view spoiler)[is a werewolf (hide spoiler)] was a fun discovery to make while reading, even though it was heavily teased—but here in this adaptation (view spoiler)[there is a werewolf-shaped shadow behind her in some of the first panels she's introduced. (hide spoiler)] Not my thing. I still enjoyed this quite a bit, though! I really did like how this adaptation incorporated snatches of narration from the original novel. There never felt like too much of that, in my opinion; it was incorporated well.

It's wonderful to see the different ghosts that I only imagined before, to see Bod growing up and to have a visual of the graveyard itself in its kind, then frightening, beauty. If you haven't read this story, I do recommend it, but also if you can, grab the graphic novel! Like all Gaiman books, it's a treat!

    As a graphic novel it was well-executed, but I found that it was a cool idea and atmosphere without the characterization or depth of plot I want- usually how I feel about Gaiman’s work. Never mind if it’s a children’s book. Some of this could be down to being slightly abridged I will admit. But I found the whole reason Jack was after Bod to be irritatingly circular, and don’t get me started on Scarlett. Maybe I would like the text version if it had more room for depth, but I doubt it.

A lot of potential in the idea. ... after just having read some reviews, I find that the original book is a series of 8 vignettes written over 20 years, inspired by The Jungle Book. This makes WAY more sense now. It was never meant to be the kind of book I crave. The graphic novel aspect probably helped the book by deepening the atmosphere and feeling of what text there was to work with, then.

    This adaptation rocks! They kept a lot of my favorite lines, the whole story unspools just as delightfully in this format as in the novel, and yeah... I could not be more pleased with it. They even included the line about Silas not eating bananas. I am weirdly in love with that line. "Silans consumed only one food, and it was not bananas" (p. 24). I do not know why that line delights me so much -- I think it's because it strikes me as the funniest way ever of saying, "This guy is a vampire." It c This adaptation rocks!

I can't even think it in my head without grinning. In fact, I liked this graphic novel so much that I took about two months to read it because I was savoring it as much as I could. I got the single-volume edition that has the whole book in it, and it's satisfyingly heavy and substantial and... beautiful. I have hugged it.
