I just saw the play War Horse
The puppets and the way they act with them and just everything is so very cool and there’s only very slight differences in the movie from the play, it was all just astounding.
(Now if someone had just smacked the asshat who thought it would be a great idea to, not only leave his phone with the sound on during a live theater performance, but thought ‘oh I’ll just answer it’ and proceed to talk on the phone during said performance and disrupt the right side of the theater audience.)
Why does no one seem to talk about this book?!
I just finished listening to this wonderful little book on the way home from work and I just love it! Love it so very much. All the characters Bod and Silas and the Owens and every one at the graveyard were just such good characters. And the audiobook is narrated by Mr. Gaiman too and he’s got such a lovely story telling voice all the voices for the characters were great and I was just pulled in. I was sad when it had to end and the ending is so very good too, if a little bittersweet.
Of all the Neil Gaiman books I ever hear about, though, no one ever seems to talk about this one, its always Good Omens and American Gods and Stardust and Coraline long before anyone gets to The Graveyard Book. The only way I even heard about it was a casual brief mention on a podcast that caught my attention. I know its young reading, but its still a great story and the audiobook version is nearly 8 hours long.
I just love it so much now and can’t recommend it enough. If you follow me and haven’t read it yet go pick this book up, if anything pick up the audiobook, Neil Gaiman is wonderful to listen to.
