The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman


Unconventional Librarian Ocean at the End of the LaneThere is something to be said for buying into the hype when something new comes out.  This time is one of them. Heretofore, I’ve respected Neil Gaiman’s work, although the only work of his I really liked was Chu’s Day, a picture book.  Coraline made my skin crawl. I passed out free copies of Good Omens on World Book Night.

Seeing as NG was the most uttered word at BEA13 I thought for sure I would’ve had a chance to run him over and charm him with my, um, charms.  Our paths did not cross nor did I snag the coveted new book.

As luck would have it, I came across newly released Ocean at the End of the Lane at work and my co worker loved it.

And finally I can say, so. do. I.

it’s a little bit creepy.

but who doesn’t love 7 year olds?

What are some of YOUR fave Neil Gaiman’s books?
