The Ocean at the End of the Lane: A Novel by Neil Gaiman ($9.67) http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B009NFHF0Q/hpb2-20/ASIN/B009NFHF0Q I just finished it though, and I do have to say that this is one of the few books that I've read that I want to turn it over and start from page one again. - This is a beautiful world created by Mr Gaiman. - The Ocean at the End of the Lane is the 7th of Neil Gaiman's books I've read.
(Adult book with appeal for teens) A man returns home to find that nothing he remembered from childhood is quite the same. What was once an ocean is a small pond. What was a monstrous nanny might have just been a crotchety old woman - or maybe there was magic, after all. Click to read the NYTimes review of the book.
