The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

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

I'm so glad that I discovered Neil Gaiman in the last couple of years. I don't know why I didn't pick up anything by him before. Absolutely loved American Gods. Loved the road trip, gods, saving the world angle. Very Sam & Dean Winchester.


So, I got very excited about this book. I anticipated it's release along with everyone else. When the library let me know that they had it in, I jumped in my car to get it. It did not disappoint. I read it in one setting and when I got to the end, I flipped it over and started it again.

Only quibble is that this should be considered a short story, not a full length novel. And that's why it's not a 5 star book for me.


Final verdict: Magical. Terrifying. Lovely.
