A Mysterious Dark Fantasy: Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane

8 Jul

Calling all fantasy book fans… If you enjoy reading magical realism and dark fantasy, then you will most definitely enjoy reading this book. The Ocean at the End of the Lane is about a man who returns to his home in England to go to a funeral. The narrator talks about how his childhood friend Lettie who would take him to view the “ocean” down by the end of the lane. You follow along with the narrator, as he remembers his childhood memories.  This a good book to read for all Neil Gaiman fans. I enjoyed reading this book because it seemed mysterious. Why is the ocean at the end of the lane? You will have to read this book to find out. I’d give The Ocean at the End of the Lane four out of five stars! You can also read some of our previous posts about Neil Gaiman’s work including Coraline, Sandman, and American Gods.
