it’s like the jungle book, but with dead people – and it’s free

Last night on the NPR Books podcast I heard Neil Gaiman talk about his latest book, The Graveyard Book.  A boy’s family gets killed, he is adopted by the residents of a graveyard and learned to live like…dead people. 

In the course of his book tour, Gaiman read the entire book aloud, and it is posted free on his website.

If you don’t know Gaiman, he wrote the book that the movie Stardust was based on.  I personally loved his book Good Omens and would recommend it.
