Badkittyuno’s #CBR5 Review #92: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

The Ocean at the End of the Lane, by Neil Gaiman, was wonderful. Of course, you already knew that, since it seems like every fifth review on Cannonball Read is for this book. It’s magical and scary and heartbreaking and everything good about Neil Gaiman.

I went into this book (actually, I listened to the audiobook, which I highly recommend because Gaiman’s readings are always great) with almost no knowledge of its content. I knew it was a story about a man revisiting his childhood. Honestly, if you haven’t read it, I would recommend going into it blind like I did. Makes discovering the story so much better.

  1. I wasn’t able to experience the blind jump you describe; I waited for this book with bated breath. I definitely count this one among his best, up there with “Coraline” and “Neverwhere.” The dreamlike quality of his writing has me hooked.
