Book Talk: The Ocean at the End of the Lane8:30:00 PM
I've put off posting about this book for a while now...not because I don’t like it, but because I do! For weeks I’ve struggled to put into words the feeling that has lingered with me since I began reading The Ocean at the End of the Lane. It really is indescribable.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane was an experience I was entirely unprepared for. I knew very little about it going in - I had read the jacket description a while ago, but when the library notified me that the book was finally available for checkout, the only thing that I remembered was that I had heard remarkable things about Neil Gaiman and was eager to read something he had written.
My first exposure to the author had been through Yulin Kuang’s webseries “I Didn’t Write This,” in which she interprets excerpts of other people’s writing. She created a video about Dark Sonnet by Neil Gaiman, and I was completely captivated by his words.
