Welcome to Teaser Tuesday!
A great meme hosted by Miz B
The teaser this week is from
Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper and resonated in unimaginable ways. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie—magical, comforting, wise beyond her years—promised to protect him, no matter what.
A groundbreaking work from a master, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is told with a rare understanding of all that makes us human, and shows the power of stories to reveal and shelter us from the darkness inside and out. It is a stirring, terrifying, and elegiac fable as delicate as a butterfly's wing and as menacing as a knife in the dark.
"I was sad that nobody had come to my party,
but happy that I had a Batman figure,
and there was a birthday present waiting to be read,
a boxed set of the Narnia books, which I took upstairs.
I lay on the bed and lost myself in the stories.
I liked that. Books were safer than other people anyway."
I just love, love, love Neil Gaiman.
This book was amazing.
Look for the review soon!
