Neil Gaiman: The Ocean at the End of the Lane

The Ocean at the End of the LaneThe Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I waited impatiently for it and maybe that was the thing, but I wished it had a bit more magic…usually I am left feeling warm and happy and just simply good. And while I still feel some of those feelings, now that I have closed the book, I wish I could have known more about the three women.

I wasn’t all that interested in the protagonist…I couldn’t even tell you his name or if I even read his name, but those women. They are gold. The boy and his troubles reminded me of Coraline and the Other Mother somehow…bad nanny etc. I want to know more about the Ocean…maybe it needed some more words, maybe it’s just me. I’m not saying I didn’t enjoy it or that it isn’t worth a read, I just want more.
