July Multiple Books Review: 3. The Ocean at The End of The Lane by Neil Gaiman

3. The Ocean at The End of The Lane

Author: Neil Gaiman
Published: June 18th 2013
Publisher: Harper Collins
Pages: 181 pages
Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Synopsis:

THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE is a fable that reshapes modern fantasy: moving, terrifying and elegiac - as pure as a dream, as delicate as a butterfly's wing, as dangerous as a knife in the dark, from storytelling genius Neil Gaiman. 

It began for our narrator forty years ago when the family lodger stole their car and committed suicide in it, stirring up ancient powers best left undisturbed. Dark creatures from beyond the world are on the loose, and it will take everything our narrator has just to stay alive: there is primal horror here, and menace unleashed - within his family and from the forces that have gathered to destroy it.

His only defense is three women, on a farm at the end of the lane. The youngest of them claims that her duckpond is ocean. The oldest can remember the Big Bang.

Deskynowsky's Review:

Supposed to be bright solid 10 stars!

AMAZING!

I just literally lost words on how to describe this masterpiece! This book is on the top of my most fave book of all time!

The writing is ├╝ber-beautiful, the storyline made my heart pounding faster and faster everytime I turned the page, the characters are so alive and so magically-written.. Everything about this book is so elegant and for me hard to define, it is just what it is.. A Masterpiece by a genius writer, Mr. Neil Gaiman..
