I’m back, people, and book club is happening for all us book nerds out there. We’re reading (or have already read) Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book. Here’s a synopsis:
Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy.
He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead.
There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy — an ancient Indigo Man beneath the hill, a gateway to a desert leading to an abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible menace of the Sleer.
But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack — who has already killed Bod’s family…
Oooh, what’s a Sleer? I don’t know but I want to!
We’ll be discussing this eerie tale next Tuesday, May 21, though you can always comment on the thread afterwards.
On other not-really-news, because who wants to read the real news anyway, what’s everybody watching? I finished Season 2 of The Imposters which I enjoyed. Everything coming up on Netflix for me right now is sci-fi or paranormal or grizzled detectives with Family Issues. I hate Family Issues, man. I need something fun. Has anyone seen Wine Country yet?
