The pond that was an ocean

The Ocean at the End of the Lane: A Novel - Neil Gaiman

While this was not my favourite Neil Gaiman book (that honour is still reserved for Neverwhere), I loved its simple complexities. The characters who you felt you knew so well but knew nothing about in reality. The things experienced in a familiar way in childhood but so foreign at the same time. The writing was intriguing and It took me no time at all to be sucked into the ocean-of-a-story and come out the other side a little bit different.
