My review of The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman is up at Aurelia (and Goodreads, and Librarything).
I have to admit, I was a little iffy with the first couple pages, thinking this was going to be straight-out horror story all the way through, but then it took a lovely shift into fanciful and it quickly became one I couldn’t put down. If I was forced to draw one comparison between Gaiman’s other works, it would be that he seems to me to be at his best when he writes for a younger audience. He gives himself more room to play, and his sense of whimsy is fully-developed.
