Can't sing it's praises enough,
This review is from: The Ocean at the End of the Lane (Kindle Edition)
I love Neil Gaimen. So I expected no less than to love this book but any long term fan knows an author can have a dud.
This is not that book.
This is where Gaimen thrives- lulls you into a feeling of an average story of adults reminiscing about childhoods and then, easy as you like, it becomes a fantastical tale of a boy and a girl (who's been 11 for a long time) and their attempts to save his family from a being that crossed over from the place with an orange sky to Our World, where it doesn't belong.
I won't say anymore for fear of ruining the suspense and skill of Gaimen pulling you into this brilliantly-crafted story.
Highly recommend (if you can't tell).
