    Not sure -- been a long while since I've read it. ISxP?
    I got INFJ vibes from him actually- although I don't really think characterization was all that well developed so its hard to tell really for sure. It is/was a childrens book so really it was more about the 'mystique' than anything else I suppose. But... And 9 or 6. sx/?(sp).

    My highly accurate typing of the boy named nobody.

    And I finished the book last night while I was being an owl so woot! And now time to read I think its called... 'When a monster calls'- which sounds similar but sadder.

    And another aside- the ending of the graveyard book was...
    in my opinion.

    I had a very ESTJ reaction to the ending when I first read it.

    and it's nice enough to

    weep, but I don't

    you?

    Right?! And I mean what kind of world is that really- the dead? So they just remain these stagnant beings for all eternity? Dunno felt like that could have been fleshed out better had some... Yes but... Thing going for it. Another side of the fence thing. Because in this world- having to spend thousands millions of years doing the same exact thing but not developing AT all... Seems like absolute hell- and just NO. I mean this is when you would get stuff out of horror stories- baby snatching ghosts and stuff.

    And also- bigger but above plays into it... So... Bods just never going to get to see any of the people who raised him ever again. I mean. Not even only that but the book made it out like they were going to FORGET him- and he them... But I sorta kinda skimmed over the end so that might not be right(it was getting very stale and I just wanted to be done by that point because the whole- long lost friend remaining long lost kinda sucked in my opinion as well- even if it WAS realistic was kinda like raining on a parade- debbie downering the entire ending.) anyways but if it IS right it sorta nudges towards a 'what was the point then' sort of deal. But I suppose the generic 'to keep Bod safe' can be played.

    And... The mystery behind why they wanted to kill Bod- the resolution was lame in my opinion. A prophesy... ? Thats just too easy a card to pull imo. No explanation needed for anything except well- some mysterious thing told us we had to so obviously we did so there- just weak.

    But I thought the first part of the book was strong. Would have been interested if they had explored that world a bit more instead of just mostly confining themselves to the graveyard. But again- kids book.

    Im VERY critical of the media I consume. Mhm.

    Where do I go to request a forum name change? It's been brought to my attention that some people actually think I'm a chick. I guess its all those femme fatale vibes I'm giving out

    If it makes you feel any better, the only reason why anyone knows I'm female is because I'm forum-famous. Most people thought I was a guy for the first 3-4 years I was on this forum.

    If you actually want a name change, go to the Name Change Request Thread --

    Hmm, is the poem I'm working on need more lines, or is one stanza enough?

    The lines flow well so far, but it needs more...effect.

    Then again, adding more may muddle the whole point of the poem.
