The Ocean at the End of the Lane is beautifully written and crafted. It’s the first book I’ve read by Neil Gaiman, and I still can’t believe it’s taken me so long to read one of his works! The Ocean at this End of the Lane is a fable story, narrated by a man in his forties recalling events that occurred in his childhood at the farm at the end of the lane. It’s magical and haunting, and I felt completely immersed in the story while I was listening to the audio.
Although The Ocean at the End of the Lane is not typically a story I’d seek out and read, I will absolutely be reading more books by Neil Gaiman. I loved that he narrated the story himself; he’s a fantastic narrator! I’m looking forward to my next Neil Gaiman book, any suggestions on which to choose next?
