The Ocean at the End of the Lane
Author: Neil Gaiman
Call Number: F GAIMAN
About the Book: Sussex, England. A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn't thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond behind the the ramshackle old farmhouse, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.
Be sure to checkout this title and come out ready to discuss it with other avid readers in the community on Thursday, July 21 at 7:00PM, Main Library.
