The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

The Ocean at the End of the Lane - Neil Gaiman

My, (too high), expectations caused me to be slightly disappointed in this book.

 

The Ocean at the End of the Lane was a fairy tale type story, but somehow it just felt short of reaching the level of magic that I was seeking. It was well written and the characters were memorable, but I'm still left with this unsatisfied feeling and I can't seem to come up with an exact reason why. 

 

I reserve the right to come back and modify this review when I can get a better handle on what I want to say.
