Book Review : The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman

SPOILERS!! .... (well, duh)
For my birthday this month, I received a few books to add to my shelf (including the entire set of The Hunger Games - I had to brag about that in here somewhere). The Graveyard Book was one of them, and it was up high in my reading list as well. So, when I got it, I was thrilled. However, the result wasn't what I expected. 

The book takes you on a journey through Nobody Owens's life in a graveyard, where he is being brought up by the ghosts residing there. When he was just a baby, his entire family is killed by a man called Jack, and he was the only survivor. He had toddled up a hill and entered the graveyard, not knowing what had happened to his family, not knowing how much his life was about to change.
