The Ocean at the End of the Lane




Book #59 Read in 2013
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

A middle aged man returns to his childhood home for a funeral.  He begins a journey down memory lane, where he remembers a scary monster who tried to possess him, a family of witch-like woman who helped save him and the tribulations of a growing boy.  This book was in turn creepy and a coming of age story.  It had horror, a paranormal aspect, mystery and great writing.  The main character was interesting.  The Hempstock women were an interesting crew of powerful females.  This was a decent read.
