The Ocean at the End of the Lane
Not knowing Gaiman very well, but familiar to a certain point with his children's literature, I had thought at first that this must be another. It didn't take long to depart from that intial thought! This is no book for children! I feel as though I have started at the wrong end when it comes to Neil Gaiman. I would like to read his work from the start and observe his evolution (oh who am I kidding? I 'd like to do that with all of my new writers, I can't bear the thought that I have missed something!). Seriously though, I really think that reading everything this author has ever written would be a priviledge, and then I think I should go on and read all of the books that he thinks are just wonderful, because he has a voracious appetite for good literature and I cannot help but trust him to point me in a good direction.
Getting back to the Ocean, it was a short, amusing, scary little book, and something to add to your collection, buy this book! You won't regret it.
