My Book Review of The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
It has been a while since a book has compelled me to sit down and read it mostly cover to cover without stopping. But this one did. It's also a book where I find myself lacking somewhat in words to describe it properly, to do it justice. The book really doesn't need a review; it speaks for itself.
It's an old-fashioned fairy tale, wrapped up in mythology, at times sad, scary, sweet, and full of imagination. The book gets in your head and swirls around, sticking in places as you turn the page. You, as the reader, are immersed in sounds, sights, and smells most wondrous and fantastic and characters haunting and magical. It simply is an amazing book and I highly recommend it.
