The Ocean At The End Of The Lane by Neil Gaiman


"Nobody came to my seventh birthday party."

Without doubt, the highlight of my year to date was attending a Neil Gaiman event in Sydney where he so delightfully read the first two chapters of what was then his upcoming book and has now finally been released. I have been chomping at the bit to get my hands on a copy and was definitely not disappointed.
The dulcet tones of Mr Gaiman still trilled in my ears as I opened the cover of my pristine copy and began to dive into The Ocean At The End Of The Lane. This is a delicate, strange and captivating tale, an intriguing mix of harsh realities and supernatural fairy tale like occurrences.
I have no wish to give anything away, other than to say that it is a delight that you will relish. 5 out of 5, dive in now.
