I forgot how much I liked this book. Gaiman claims it is inspired by the Jungle Book, but to me it felt more like Kidnapped, but improved.

The most remarkable thing (other than me sitting down and reading a book on paper for once), was the complete lack of cynicism. That is not a sure thing with Gaiman.

4 stars

Una excelente novela para un público juvenil. Nad es un bebé que escapa de su casa la noche en que toda su familia es asesinada y es acogido por los muertos del cementerio próximo. Su infancia transcurre entre lápidas y muertos antiguos, criptas y fantasmas. Porque el hombre que mató a su familia aún anda buscándolo y poner un pie fuera del cementerio puede ser peligroso.
Pero Nad es un chico, quiere aprender, quiere vivir, conocer gente, y no es del todo consciente de los peligros que acechan fuera...
