This book spans Nobody's entire childhood with each chapter as a vignette covering the biggest adventure that happened that yearOne year he's meeting new human friends the next going on adventures with a hanged witch or running from very very hungry ghouls Since there is only a snippet of each year's adventure I became frustrated when the adventure was over but not wrapped up ie the Macabray the dance of the living and the dead was not ever touched on again but it was by far one of the most curious happenings in that little graveyardSome of the interesting graveyard happenings ie Silas the vampire and Miss Lupesco's adventures were only spoken of in the vaguest of terms Nobody Owens is a child for most of the book and this is told from his perspectiveso it makes sense that he would not know about the full adventure Yet as the reader I still wanted to know what happenedOverall this is definitely one my favorite Gaiman novels Definitely check it out Audiobook Comments Narrated by the author CHECK Neil Gaiman has an absolutely wonderful reading voice This audiobook has a some musical accompaniment Notably during the Macabray dance which made listening to it extremely memorableYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading
