The Ocean at the End of the Lane

by Neil Gaiman
 
A blend of myth, fairy tale, and horror story, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a perfect middle ground between Gaiman’s adult and children’s stories. When a grown man returns to the site of his childhood home, his mind recalls long-forgotten memories, both dark and strange, and remembers a long lost friend who lived at a farm down the road, a farm not quite of this world. Though this is one of Gaiman’s shorter novels, it feels like his most personal, and leaves the reader with a rich reading experience to remember.
