I’m so psyched right now! I finally got a copy of Neil Gaiman’s new adult novel, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, which was just released yesterday in the U.S.
The much-awaited novel is Gaiman’s first in 8 years! I hope it’s good though, because in my experience, Neil Gaiman has a great imagination, but sometimes his writing falls short of being remarkable. I’ll admit that I did not exactly love American Gods, and Neverwhere and Stardust were only just a little above being ‘not bad.’ Still though, that doesn’t stop me from reading his novels.
Of course I think his YA novels are brilliant – especially The Graveyard Book and Coraline.
I can’t wait to dig in to this new novel!
