The Ocean at the End of the Lane

The Ocean at the End of the Lane
by Neil Gaiman

The Ocean at the End of the Lane is really a special novel. It is hard to express just how amazing this book really is. Gaiman writes in such a way that not only do the words leap off the page but they blend together like poetry. This is also one of the rare books that when I was finished I got a sense of satisfaction that is so unusual for me. I have had that feeling with books I didn't care for and some that I loved, this is the latter. The story feels so much like a myth or fairy tale and is just as magical.There is not much I can say about the story itself without taking anything away from the experience and I encourage you to enjoy the magic and dream, Neil Gaiman, for yourself. -- recommended by Wyatt P. - Gere Branch Library
