The Graveyard Book

I admit I came a little slow to getting my hands on it -- I haven't made time to read for a long while.

Managed to start on my copy yesterday, unsure of what to expect, but certainly not an ending that was going to make me tear.

Perhaps I had held it back each time I went through The Wake, but the only other time was while reading Hikaru no Go Vol15, when Sai was gone.

Oh well, it's silly I know, feel free to laugh. But it surprised me how much sadness came over me at the ending, I don't think it was supposed to be like that. Not really.

Anyway, it's a good book, and deserves an entry just for it alone. :3

Is that one a graphic novel? i've heard good things about Gaiman, but only have read parts of 'Sandman' :)

Have you read Watchmen? Read that recently, very cool :D

I simply love that book! Then again I love all of Gaimans books so it's no big surprise :)

Last time when I read the book was about seven years ago, I do not have time for this employment - I prefer to look films, instead of to read books... Daily, some years successively, I approximately look through from hundred and more photos in my consciousness so much images, what even a films I prefer with modern camera decisions, for the same reason I practically do not look old films... Here now I write and in parallel I look, how a background - film "Transformers"... I it looked already some tens times, but because of good camera decisions this film is possible to look...
