The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

"This book is the book you have just read." Neil Gaiman. This pretty much says it all about THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE by Neil Gaiman.  It is true to Neil Gaiman form.  I read this book in one sitting.  It isn't long but that is not the reason.  It is hard to put down.  A reviewer says, " told with a rare understanding of all that makes us human."  So very true. The main character has come home for a funeral but before he leaves he visits the house down the lane from where he grew up.  While sitting on a bench by the pond, he relives events from his childhood that he is not quite sure happened.  Old Mrs Hempstock is there for him as she always was growing up but could it really still be her?  A must read..
