    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.

    What made the experience of listening to The Ocean at the End of the Lane the most enjoyable?

    This is an excellent book to listen to and the author's voice, melodic and even a bit dreamy, is the perfect choice for the reading. The book is an easy book to visualize with both tangible and intangible events coming to life.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book as a great summer read. The author takes you on an other world journey, mysterious and sometimes whimsical. The story takes place in a world very real with all of it's boring details and characters with mixed up, good and bad intentions, matched with a world where what we know to be true is suspended and twisted with characters who are genuine and consistent in goodness and evil. I found myself wanting to hear more of the story in the end.

    Great book by Neil Gaiman.
