Title: The Ocean At The End Of The Lane
Author: Neil Gaiman
Publication Date: 10 April 2014
Page Count: 272
This is a story about a man who goes back to the place he grew up. Upon doing this memories flood in about things which he had forgotten.
The book takes on a supernatural theme which builds and comes to a rapid end and involves creatures of a mysterious nature.
If I’m honest I wasn’t that impressed. I had heard so much good stuff about Neil’s books. Prehaps this was just one of the not so good ones.
I felt that the story seemed out of place. It didn’t build, it just was and then it was over. I felt it could have been longer, with more explanation of what was happening.
The story itself is good but I just felt it lacked something.
This doesn’t rate that highly for me unfortunately.
Thanks for reading.
