⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
Listening to Neil Gaiman READ a Neil Gaiman novel is the ONLY way to read a Neil Gaiman novel I have decided. I have now listened to three of his books on Audible and read one. The two he narrated (this one and The Ocean At The End Of The Lane) are by far my favorites and the whimsy of them just makes me so happy....even when the story gets weird and morbid. Neverwhere is humorous and trippy while also asking some deep questions about like and what its meant to be. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am so excited to learn Mr. Gaiman is writing a sequel soon!!

So, I live in the city that Neil Gaiman lived in as a kid (he was born just outside of it) and they've named a road here "The Ocean at the End of the Lane". Which is pretty cool - I went to see Neil Gaiman cutting the ribbon on it, and my copy was signed by him that day. But I haven't taken the book back there yet. Such a lackluster bookstagrammer.

📖#iamsweetJune - title that starts with M, N, O (am such a cheater. And still not caught up)

What's the strangest book you've read either this year or throughout your reading life? Pictured is Grief is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter and this was the first book I read this year that I was a little thrown by. Other books I've found a to be "out there" include The Pisces, The Ocean at the End of the Lane and my current read, The Vegetarian. I should say that for me strange isn't necessarily synonymous with a negative opinion, but I remember once I'd finished GITTWF, I literally said aloud "I don't know what the fuck I just read." 😂 Sometimes reading is like that and you don't always "get" everything. I feel like one day I'll revisit it but I may check out Ted Hughes' Crow poetry collection which this book apparently takes a lot of inspiration from. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #griefisthethingwithfeathers #maxporter #prosepoetry #tedhughes #weirdbooks #bookflatlay #tbr #readersofinstagram #blackgirlsread #theoceanattheendofthelane #thepisces #thevegetarian #bookish #bibliophile #whatiread #bookstagramfeature #thevegetarian

Hey Bookish friends!📚

It’s been a while...maybe a bit longer than a while!

I’ve been struggling a lot recently and life has been a bit hectic. It’s all been going on, so I haven’t had a huge amount of reading or social media time - although I have been getting back into podcasts so will update you on that in another post!

Anyway, in this tough time I always find myself going back to my favourite author, Neil Gaiman.
And this time I decided to go back to Ocean at the End of the Lane.

This is a book i’ve only read a couple of times, which is odd for me, but is my second favourite Gaiman novel (with Coraline still going strong as my absolute favourite book ever!) and my god re-reading it has made me love it more.
Have you read Ocean before? If so please let me know because i’d love to talk to someone about it! —
Also, what do you guys think of my new theme?!

Who's your favorite author?

Author Appreciation post: Neil Gaiman. One of my all time favorite authors and one of the few whose books Ive read multiple times. American Gods is probably my favorite work by him and the first of his that I read. Was also fortunate enough to get it signed! Anyways this quote gets me.

11. SPONTAN GEKAUFT ... sind mittlerweile die meisten Bücher auf meinem SuB 😂 wirklich, der Bücherflohmarkt bei mir auf der Arbeit ist eine Katastrophe! Aber für den guten Zweck... es ist alles für den guten Zweck 🙈 und gegen mein Regal.
Dieses Exemplar durfte gleichzeitig mit „Die Götter von Asgard“ (eigentliches Ziel) bei mir einziehen, weil mein Kollege von Neil Gaiman schwärmt, ich bis dato erst eine Roman von ihm hatte und der Klappentext spannend klang. Hat mich auch nicht enttäuscht ☺️ Kauft ihr eure Bücher gezielt oder lieber spontan?

Unopened paperback of The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
.
When a book lies unopened it might contain anything in the world, anything imaginable. It therefore, in that pregnant moment before opening, contains everything. Every possibility, both perfect and putrid. Surely such mysteries are the most enticing things...grant[ed] us in this mortal mere...Unknown and therefore infinite. (Catherynne M. Valente, The Habitation of the Blessed - A Dirge for Prester John, #1)

"Ninguém realmente se parece por fora com o que é de fato por dentro. Nem você. Nem eu. As pessoas são muito mais complicadas que isso. É assim com todo mundo." De um dos meus autores favoritos (acredito que, atualmente, ele seja), uma fábula que nos lembra como nossa vida é ditada pelas experiências da infância. O que ganhamos com elas e o preço que pagamos.

Já perdi a conta de quantas vezes li esse livro em formato digital e em inglês, mas agora tenho uma cópia impressa para emprestar e espalhar a palavra de Neil Gaiman.

2018 book 62.
Gaiman'as visada turi kažką tokio, kas atrodo visiškai kasdieniškai paprasta (berniukas iš paprastos šeimos, kuris mėgsta skaityti, tyrinėti, būti berniuku), bet taip pat ir perpinta mistika (opalų kasėjas, kaimynės tolimajame kelio gale, nusikaltimas, atsirandantys pinigai). Atrodo, jog tas kitas pasaulis visiškai šalimais ir toks tikras, tačiau nematomas paprastoms akims, ar tiems, kurie nesugeba atsimerkti (kelionė prie vandenyno-okeano, nuotykis susikibus rankomis, nauja auklė). Dar viena kelionė puslapiais panardino į stebuklingą kelionę šalia realybės. Draugystė, mistika, tamsa, pavojus. Kiek melancholiška knyga, bet nepaprastai skani📚🐉 #read #perskaityta #neilgaiman #vandenynaskeliogale #theoceanattheendofthelane #bonusanimus #mistika #bookland #booknerd #bibliophile #bookdream #gaimanworld #favbook #booklove #bookstagram #knygųdrakonas📚🐉

I have to admit, the verdict is still out on my thoughts on Neil Gaiman. I absolutely loved ‘Coraline’ but did not enjoy ‘American Gods’. ‘The Ocean At the End of the Lane’ was to be the book that decided my opinion of him, but when I finished it, I found myself feeling indifferent; didn’t love it but didn’t hate it, by any means. So I turn to you, Instagram! What should be the next Neil Gaiman book that I read?? .

🎶 I could swim one thousand miles. And I could swim one thousand more 🎶- let’s not over proclaim, but I did swim a mile!! So I’m sneaking in a cheeky #thebookishbillboardhot100 entry with #TheProclaimers’ famous ditty.
With thanks to my #winggirl @pppondie - at 26 we didn’t know if we could do it, but we powered through. And what a feeling. Several people at work are looking at me as if, do I realise how far that is- as in what an achievement. Need to speed up now. #buzzing #goalachieved
Naturally, an early morning swim is best marked with a #bookstagram post. This time I am promoting @neilhimself and the fabulous, #submersive #theoceanattheendofthelane - because there is literally a new life at the end of this particular lane, one where I am a distance swimmer, she shirker of exercise. This book is a magical exploration of those great borders in life. Times of change. Childhood/adulthood fantasy/reality. And it manages it with the healing power of water, something that sings to my soul. This one engages the senses and made me really feel like I was #underwater.

So this #summer is getting off to a great start book wise, my goal to read more is taking off well. Since coming home I have read 3 books, #AlmostLove #thesurfacebreaks #theoceanattheendofthelane which is very good for me! It seems like the book gods want me to keep going; as I went to watch something on #netflix my internet failed, so I had to decide on what to read next. I have chosen to give this another go. In a better frame of mind and I feel like I can focus on it more now. #bookstagram #summerofreading2018

Good morning readers!

I finished The Ocean At the End of the Lane on audio yesterday and have mixed feelings about it. The story was part mesmerizing, part odd and sudden. I understand and appreciate the concept of the book but never felt that there was a flow to the story that I could really connect with. However, I’m not giving up on Neil Gaiman and have placed a hold on the graphic novel adaption of the Graveyard book.

Do you give authors second chances after a bit of a disappointing read or rather move on quickly? •

"I dreamed I kept a perfect little bed and breakfast by the seaside, and to everyone who came to stay with me I would say, in that tongue, 'Be whole', and they would become whole, not broken people, not any longer, because I had spoken the language of shaping." - The Ocean at the end of the lane, Neil Gaiman #books #reading #buchtag #bücher #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookgram #buchblogger #booksandcoffee #neilgaiman #theoceanattheendofthelane

“Grown ups don’t look like grown ups on the inside either. Outside they’re big and thoughtless and they always know what they’re doing. Inside, they look just like they always have. Like they did when they were your age. Truth is, there aren’t any grown ups. Not one, in the whole wide world.” The Ocean at the End of the Lane is my first venture into Neil Gaiman’s mystical and fantastical world and it won’t be my last. I’ve never been a fan of fantasy fiction, probably as I find it quite complicated to read, often with long and arduous descriptive passages and not enough dialogue. Don’t get me wrong, this book does contain a lot of descriptive passages but these only pave the way to the beauty, joy, melancholy and overall truth that this book lays out for you.
Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed 🤗

Tag des Meeres bei #pagesofjune18 Ich bin ganz klar der Meertyp. Also nicht „Der Berg ruft“ sondern „The Ocean is calling and I must go“. Das TShirt musste ich haben. Das noch ungelesene Buch hat glaube ich gar nichts mit dem Meer zu tun, außer im Titel, aber das und die Tatsache, dass es von Neil Gaiman ist hat zum Kauf ausgereicht. 😊
Auf ein schönes Wochenende 🎉

"Давненько"не было книг в моем профиле.
После этой книги я полюбила Нила Геймана.
Немного того, почему мне понравился этот роман:
1."Океан в конце дороги" захватывает с первых страниц. Для меня это был удар в душу, потому что я за последние 2-3 месяца не могла найти именно захватывающую книгу. Мне постоянно попадались такие произведения, после которых или во время чтения мне хотелось их порвать от скукоты.
2. Она написана очень красивым языком, это самое важное для меня.
3. Главный эпизод этого романа. Девочка 11 лет отдала свою жизнь теням ради мальчика 8 лет.
Это не любовная линия( для меня, по крайней мере)

Do you have a favourite type of book to read at the beach? I feel that the environment you’re in when you’re reading very immersive books (like @neilhimself ‘s fantastical offerings) can really impact the reading experience. For example, I listened to #TheGraveyardBook while on a 20+ hour road trip with my mom. Now every time I read or listen to the Graveyard Book I think of that road trip. Likewise, reading Gaiman’s #TheOceanattheEndoftheLane at the beach makes me feel more connected to the story-line and thus the incredible reality-bending women in the story are even more memorable 🌊 #thegraveyardbook #neilgaiman #beachreads #readingchallenge #koboebooks #koboaurah2o #bookdragon #bookstagram

Day 3 of #7DayBookCoverChallenge. Real talk - I am a HUGE Neil Gaiman groupie. I have been ever since the eighth grade when I checked "Coraline" out of the school library. (Can I just talk about how cool Neil Gaiman is for a minute? I mean, on top of being one of the most brilliant writers ever, he's also married to Amanda Palmer, besties with Tori Amos, and an outspoken advocate for refugees. Also the time I went to hear him speak at the Long Center he gave an air hug to a fan in the top balcony and told a little girl who wanted to be a writer when she grew up "Well, you can't do both, so if I were you I'd choose the writing bit." What's not to love, here? 😭) Anyway - it's hard to pick a favorite out of his books, but today I'm really feeling "The Ocean at the End of the Lane." It's really quite a simple story, but packs in powerful mythology and splendid characters that will seriously make you contemplate your place in the universe.

Also, if anyone wants to buy this broke-ass college grad a STARZ subscription so I can watch "American Gods," I will bake you my world-famous Enchanted Rose cookies and ship them to you wherever in the world you might be (I'm not joking 🦄✨💕🌌) #neilgaiman #neilgaimanbooks #neilgaimangroupie #theoceanattheendofthelane #lettiehempstock #sevenbooksinsevendays #sevenbooks #bookworm #nerdgirl #bookstagram

"Ninguém realmente se parece por fora com o que é de fato por dentro. Nem você. Nem eu. As pessoas são muito mais complicadas que isso. É assim com todo mundo."
.
.
Foi há quarenta anos, agora ele lembra muito bem. Quando os tempos ficaram difíceis e os pais decidiram que o quarto do alto da escada, que antes era dele, passaria a receber hóspedes. Ele só tinha sete anos.
Um dos inquilinos foi o minerador de opala. O homem que certa noite roubou o carro da família e, ali dentro, parado num caminho deserto, cometeu suicídio. O homem cujo ato desesperado despertou forças que jamais deveriam ter sido perturbadas. Forças que não são deste mundo. Um horror primordial, sem controle, que foi libertado e passou a tomar os sonhos e a realidade das pessoas, inclusive os do menino.
Ele sabia que os adultos não conseguiriam — e não deveriam — compreender os eventos que se desdobravam tão perto de casa. Sua família, ingenuamente envolvida e usada na batalha, estava em perigo, e somente o menino era capaz de perceber isso. A responsabilidade inescapável de defender seus entes queridos fez com que ele recorresse à única salvação possível: as três mulheres que moravam no fim do caminho. O lugar onde ele viu seu primeiro oceano.

Okay, I think I’ve assembled my summer to-read pile (the stack at the forefront). Let’s see how many I can get through. Category is social justice/queer YA, thrillers, bestsellers, a pinch of the classics, queer lit, and an intro to Gaiman.

Not making much reading progress currently but I’ve also started this as an audiobook a few days ago to make up for the lack of dedicated reading time this week. This will be my second Neil Gaiman book after reading Coraline and so far I’m honestly not quite sure what to think of it...

Have you read this one? What’s your favorite Gaiman book?

Hope everyone survived Monday okay ✌🏼

[23/50] The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊/5
I think each time I’ve read a Neil Gaiman book, I’ve said that it’s NOW my favorite Neil Gaiman book... but I really mean it this time! I loved this story!
I’m convinced that Neil Gaiman has told a flawless story with The Ocean at the End of the Lane. That’s how much I loved it. I don’t want to give a summary of this one because I loved going into this book blind. What starts out as a middle-aged man attending a funeral, reminiscing about childhood memories, unravels into a story unlike any other — while somehow feeling familiar. Here, Gaiman produces a wonderful work of fiction that explores the mystery behind the universe we live in and everything in day-to-day life that goes unexplained.
There’s more to the world than our minds perceive, and Gaiman has different myths and magical stories interwoven into this, and it makes for an extraordinary storyline.
And that’s it! That’s all I want to say about this one. I loved it and it’s definitely a five-star read 😍 - a wonderful book for the book lover’s soul.
Also, super random, I loved the part where the boy picks a cat out of the cat garden 🤗 that just sounds like the cutest thing in the 🌎 world.

First time I’ve actually take the time to read again. Feels great. And what an adventure this book’s been so far...

The Ocean at the End of the Lane was such a book for me. It came out while I was in the US, and my plan was to sleep on the flight back to Norway. That didn't happen, the book was so good I just had to continue reading it! 😍
