Possibly the best thing I have ever read,
This review is from: The Ocean at the End of the Lane (Paperback)
Possibly the best thing I have ever read. A dark modern fairy tale about loss of innocence and the betrayals of growing up. It's possibly the beat things I've ever read. Seriously this book just attacks you in the childhood. It's short but perfectly formed and feels completely genuine in it;s detail. It perfectly captures that feeling of helplessness you had as a child and the shock and loss when you realised that the things you hold to be true are ephemeral. All topped with Gaimans fanatastic kncack fro crafting a tale that feels like a traditional fairy tale.
