The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

“A delightful, light surreal-fantasy story about a boy who has trouble with a ‘flea’ from another place. Luckily, there is a lovely family at the end of the lane that is very good at dealing with these varmint.

I enjoy Gaiman’s stories. Everything I have read of his is whimsical, and seems fun for young adults but interesting enough for adults to read as well. Other books I’ve read from Neil Gaiman are Coraline, Anansi Boys, Good Omens and Neverwhere. I haven’t read American Gods which is one of his very popular books. In general, I don’t like his adult books as much as I like his YA books.

My Rating: ★★★ My 2019 Reading Challenge: Book #13
