Publisher's Summary

Here's a fantastic ghost adventure story, laced with menace and humour. When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard? Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.A stunningly original novel deftly constructed over eight chapters, featuring every second year of Bod's life, from babyhood to adolescence. Will Bod survive to be a man?

I loved this

Not written a review of any other audiobooks on here but this was a great adults fairytale and read in a lovely way just like someone reading you a bed time story. I am new to Neil Gaiman and am already a huge fan. I would listen to this one again and again.

Excellent

I wasn't 100% sure that this book would appeal to me, but I'm glad I bought it. Excellent story and the reading by Neil Gaiman was also excellent and added to the story. One of the best books I read/listened to this year!
