The Ocean at The End of The Lane Review

Hello Star Shines,

Thank you for tuning in to The House of Snuggles’ very first book review! It is my hope of hopes to supply you all with a fantastic reading and resource list. For our first review, I thought I would start off with some recreational, light reading.

This week’s review is for Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane. This is his newest work and let me say, he did not disappoint.

In a nutshell, this is a fantasy type story about a man’s memory of his youth. Set in Sussex, England, a young boy is drawn to an old farmhouse at the end of the lane and the three strange ladies that live there. In a series of dark, mystifying events we are shown that even the smallest events can have the greatest effect on our lives and how things, especially people, are not always what they seem.

In the typical Neil Gaiman fashion, this story is an easy read. It grips you from page one and is a page turner right up until the end. This is a relatively short book which I easily read in a day. Check it out and let me know what you think!

    This is a beautifully written book. Neil Gaiman is really good at telling stories that poke and prod at our innermost sense of timeless wonder and mystery. The best word I can use to describe his writing is “dreamlike.”
