The Ocean at the End of the Lane

The Ocean at the End of the Lane: A Novel - Neil Gaiman

Full review: http://infinispace.net/2015/01/ocean-end-lane-neil-gaiman/


A story of childhood, loneliness, sacrifice, suicide, memories, and how the choices you make impact people; a lesson about how children are open and explore, while adults are closed and follow paths.

But below the surface Gaiman gives us his normal peak behind the curtain of a creepy and fantastical world populated by reality devouring "hunger birds," lonely monsters, and caring immortals. He never fully pulls back that curtain. Doing so would reveal too much and remove some of the mystery of behind the storytelling.
