    (4317)

    A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

    Dave says: "Oh, the Wondrous Ocean!"
    "Like a Doctor Who story!"

    Story
    What did you love best about The Ocean at the End of the Lane?

    This was like a Doctor Who story - if the Doctor was a 12 year old girl and the companion was a 7 year old boy, and the TARDIS is a duck pond! Other than that, exactly he same! As only can be told by Neil Gaiman!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lettie, the 12 year old, who shows what it is to sacrifice for a loved one.


    Any additional comments?

    I only regret that it was as short as it was. I wanted to stay in that world longer. I also regret that I will, yet again, have another lengthy wait for Neil's next novel!
