The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Read 16 - 22 November
(First and foremost - I've decided to start reviewing the books I've read in English in, well, English. So there it is.)
I had heard mixed reviews of this one before I borrowed it from a friend about a year ago. Even if it's just 178 pages and therefor not a major project (like The Dance with Dragons which I've been reading for 1,5 years now), it still took me a while to pick it up, which I did last week. I enjoyed it straight from the beginning, just as I did with Coraline. Gaiman's language is beautiful and his writing style is so relatable, it feels almost like he is a dear friend who has written the book just for you, if you know what I mean.
Although Ocean is a bit difficult to understand sometimes (and super, super eerie and also terryfying), I did like it immensely. The characters, especially the Hempstocks ofcourse, were delightful, and I did quite enjoy Ursula Monkton despite being a horrible... well, "person". You'll get it if you read ut.
Will be sure to get my hands on more Gaiman-books in the future!
