    I am still thinking about this story months after I finished the book. I have recommended it to many others. Such a wonderful rich and remarkably vivid story. Gaiman is such an excellent writer but with this book, he shows a softer side of his story telling.

    A reflection of time spent as a small boy in the company of an unusual family at a neighbouring property, told by the adult many years later who appears to have been drawn back to the land and the three generations of women living there over and over again. As he tries to reconcile the events that took place, attempting to understand the impact of this family on himself, his own mother, father and sister, he creates a a visual of the mystical powers of of these women that is disturbing and dark.

    A wonderfully lyrical and magical story of childhood terrors, rescue and sacrifice that works on many levels - as fantasy, as philosophy, as allegory. A glimpse into the darkness, the infinite and the unknown as only a child can understand. Loved it. Elaine

    Remembering the scary

    Do you remember being a child where fantacy and reality blurred and you thought if you looked sideways you might see that your techer was really a witch? Read this story and it will take you back to the time a when you were not quite sure what was real or in your imagination.

    As much disturbing as it is fascinating, The Ocean at the End of the Road is a great book. I'd strongly recommend it. A roller coaster ride of a book that is near impossible to put down!
