The Ocean at the End of the Lane - Meeting #1

Meeting #1

I've been wanting to read this book for a long time. The first 12 will be included in the first meeting, and the rest will go on a waitlist. As always, we can do two or more meetings if there's enough interest. A brilliantly imaginative and poignant fairy tale from the modern master of wonder and terror, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is Neil Gaiman’s first new novel for adults since his #1 New York Times bestseller Anansi Boys. This bewitching and harrowing tale of mystery and survival, and memory and magic, makes the impossible all too real..

    Decided to read the book again as Hilary suggested. I did enjoy the book but was confused at times with the supernatural happenings.

      I also recommend The Graveyard Book by the same author. It's YA but a great read!

    Its interesting how Amazon controls what books go on the e-list for my Kindle. I can NOT borrow Huck Finn as an ebook, but can borrow The Ocean at the End of the Lane for my Kindle. What is the strategy here?
