The Graveyard Book

The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman description

“Face your life
Its pain, its pleasure,
Leave no path untaken”

Well, thank you Neil! You are awesome!
Dear readers, do you really think it's a fairy tale? I mean, come on! Please don't disappoint me! Of course it looks like a fairy tale but actually it's not! It's like a human being - has a body and a soul. This story's body is fiction, but it's soul is reality! It, however weird it seems, teaches you how to live! And I like Mr. Gaiman so much for that, he's teaching us life through his fairy tales.

What lessons can we learn from this story?
Courage, Love, Friendship, and most important: Fate!
To believe in Fate, that means to be brave and loving, to fear nothing, to be strong, and to do people no wrong!! (Oh dear rhyme!!!)

This story reminded me of a very famous quote by Neil Gaiman himself. It says:
"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten"

That's it.
