The Ocean at the End of the Lane

The Ocean At The End Of The Lane - Neil Gaiman Pretty damn superb and no mistake. It gets an easy 4.5 from me and just nips at the heels of Mr Punch, which still remains my favourite offering from Gaiman to date.The story is a simple one, but I found myself grabbed under in a sea of mythological imagery and bittersweet, distant memories from childhood. The last few pages in particular struck a chord with me.I've got a feeling this book and its characters are going to stay with me for a time yet.Definitely one of my reads of the 2013. Can't recommend it highly enough.
