Title: The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Author: Neil Gaiman

Published: June 18th 2013 by William Morrow Books

 

The Ocean at the End of the Lane is about remembering childhood. A man (who remains nameless the entire book) revisits where he lived for his first handful of years and to the pond a childhood friend, named Lettie Hempstock, called her ocean. Sitting on a bench near the pond he remembers when he was seven and all of the peculiarly mystical things he encountered.

Monsters, kittens, wormholes and family/friend relations seen through the eyes of a seven year old.

This book very much channels Maurice Sendak if he were to write a book aimed toward adults.

I enjoyed this novel quite a bit as it was a very fluid, easy to read tale. But, at the same time, this novel didn't move me like it seemed to have moved others. It wasn't inspiring or overly beautiful. It was just a good under 200 page book to get lost in.
