The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Neil Gaiman

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 se...ven, 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 (a pond that she'd claimed was an ocean) behind 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.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.

Recenzie Romantické Young- adult

Neil Gaiman  Hneď na úvod musím povedať že táto kniha bola úžasná a hrozná zároveň, ale aj tak som si ju zamilovala a konečne po dlhom čase kniha ktorá ma naozaj prekvapila a neskončila tak ako som to predpokladala. Anotácia: Bolo to iba jazierko pre kačky vzadu za farmou. Nebolo veľmi veľké. Lettie Hempstocková vravela, že je to oceán. Vedel som, že je to hlúposť. Vravela, že sa cezeň[...]
