Quick Trip Down Neil Gaiman’s Lane

UnknownTHE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE by Neil Gaiman is a gem.

This small novel is another terrific creation from the guy who brought us THE SANDMAN comic book, as well as the novels AMERICAN GODS and THE GRAVEYARD BOOK.

In this new one, Gaiman tells the story from the perspective of a 7-year-old boy – living much the life that Gaiman lived when he was 7 and living in rural England. It takes a keen eye to see the world as a kid would, even after turning 50.

It’s a story about magic, true. But the surprising thing is how true the magic seems.

Well worth reading.
