The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

The Ocean at the End of the Lane: A Novel - Neil Gaiman

Pretty is the word I think of when reflecting on this book.
Pretty cover, pretty words, pretty scenery.

 

I am ashamed to say this is the first book by Gaiman I have read, it sure will not be the last. The way he strings a story together is mesmerizing.

 

Despite the scariness of this book it is so innocent, reading it through this 7 year old's eyes, and I really liked that Gaiman could keep that throughout the book.

 

I feel very lucky to have won this in a tumblr giveaway. I will be reading it again.
