Sitting down to blog this book, I don't quite know where to start. I truly enjoyed reading this book.
in his home town for a funeral, a middle aged man drives to the site of
his parents' former home and visits the farm at the end of the
road, where he remembers some curious events from when he was seven... He remembers being caught up in the aftermath of a
houseguest's death, a doorway is opened to another world--a world of
nightmares and fairytale monsters, of magical kittens and brave
eleven-year old girls who are older and wise r than creation. And it's
there his adventure starts and, just as abruptly, ends.
Ocean at the End of the Lane deals
with dreams, the effect of belief on reality, and forgotten things, like
things that every kid knows and every adult has forgotten.
There's not a lot I can say without giving away the best bits. A
haunting novel about sacrifice, boundaries, and things remembered. So
many twisted and tattered new characters to get into our heads and under
about all I can say. The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a really
quick read but full of interesting ideas and great moments.
