My quote for this week comes from The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, pg 17.
Mrs. Owens bent down to the baby and extended her arms. “Come now,” she said, warmly. “Come to Mama.”
To the man Jack, walking through the graveyard towards them on a path, his knife already in his hand, it seemed as if a swirl of mist had curled around the child, in the moonlight, and that the boy was no longer there: just damp mist and moonlight and swaying grass.
I’m half way through this book, which I’ve been meaning to read for a while, and am really enjoying it. I mean, how could you not love a character whose name is Nobody Owens. The idea of a boy growing up in a graveyard was all the hook I needed to read this story. I’ll be finishing this pretty quickly.
