“Rattle his bonesOver the stonesit’s only a pauperwho nobody owns”A traditional nursery rhyme.
The graveyard book is a very Gothic story with yet happiness, mystery, love, friendship, and above all home. I have never found more joy than reading a story with most of its characters are dead but has their own world and even wonderful the Danse Macabre (Dance of Death). It also proved you can be family without sharing the same blood and the end of “Jake of all trade” was not indeed by Bod but with their stupidity which led them all to death.
All in all, I have maintained several spoilers about this novel, thus this is a story for all generations to experience its pleasant pages. It’s truly dark, vivid, and magnificent that all must read.
