Sorry if it's already been made into a thread.  I'm still sort of new, and haven't yet gotten the hang of anything.

Anyway, Neil Gaiman's Graveyard Book has been out for a number of weeks, and as a long time fan of his, I have no problem saying that The Graveyard Book is my favorite book of his.  It was so beautifully written, and had me crying my eyes out in the end.  I already want to reread it, preferably on a sunny day inside a Graveyard because I think it'd add to the fun.  So has anyone else read it?  I think it's fantastsic and everyone who likes YA lit should give it a try.

And to just throw it out there, Neil Gaiman says he's already been approached for movie rights.  If it were ever to be announced that Tim Burton were directing the movie adaption, I think I would have died and gone to heaven.

I absolutely loved the Graveyard Book.

It would be great if it became a movie.  I wonder if it would be live action or go the Coraline route?

I, too, loved the book. What an imagination. I got the audiobook as soon as it came out and enjoyed it immensely.

I hope it is made into a movie. I'd go for sure.
