The Graveyard Book
“Face your life, its pain, its pleasure, leave no path untaken.” Neil Gaiman
“You're always you, and that don't change, and you're always changing, and there's nothing you can do about it.”Neil Gaiman
“You're alive, Bod. That means you have infinite potential. You can do anything, make anything, dream anything. If you can change the world, the world will change. Potential. Once you're dead, it's gone. Over. You've made what you've made, dreamed your dream, written your name. You may be buried here, you may even walk. But that potential is finished.”Neil Gaiman
“People want to forget the impossible. It makes their world safer.”Neil Gaiman
Motivations to Read
This book was strongly recommended by Tim Ferriss and I was on the lookout for well narrated fiction books. Neil Gaiman is also a prolific writer, but I haven't read any of his books before, so hopefully this will be a good first impression. I'm drawn to stories that are targeted towards both children and adults, because they keep it simple while being filled with substance.
3 Reasons to Read
- If you enjoyed the Jungle Book or Tarzan, you'll probably enjoy this as well.
- The story of a boy named Bod who was raised in and by the Graveyard.
- A rich and vibrant world, that will keep you engaged all the way through.
