I don't know about this one. Kids ask me for it all the time, but I never bothered to pick it up before. It's a graphic novel, and I've seen in several places that it's considered one of the best, but I didn't get a whole lot from it. I have mentioned before though, that I am not the ideal reader for graphic novels, because instead of appreciating the pictures and what they add to the story, I get frustrated with them for getting in the way of my reading. And then, this is only the first volume, and I expect things heat up as it progresses.
Oh, also, I got kind of stuck on the bone thing. I mean...why are they bones? Why not just people? How is the bone thing relevant to the story? And again, maybe that comes up later, but it seemed a touch gimmicky to me.
