Currently Reading | The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman



I'm still reading Viral Nation, but I really needed an audiobook to listen to while working around the house over the July 4th holiday. I thought it might be a great time to start The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.



Neil Gaiman is the narrator for the audiobook. The first thing I noticed was how fast he narrates. I love that! Slow narrators drive me batty. The second thing I noticed was simply how lovely it is to listen to Neil Gaiman. Midnyte Reader mentioned that just the other day in one of her BEA recap posts. This book could suck, and it's possible I wouldn't even notice. I think this book is actually really good so far, but I'm afraid I might be easily hypnotized.

What are you reading this week? Be sure to let me know or leave me link!

  4. The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a book I hope to delve in to in the future, but I'd prefer it to be in paperback. I'm just not an audiobook kind of girl. Glad you are enjoying it :-)

  6. Viral Nation looks good; I love dystopian themed books. Added to my list. Neil Gaiman, well, I have seen his name all over reviews for years--maybe this is the book of his I will start with. Thanks for sharing, and have a good week reading.

  8. I haven't read my copy yet! I need to. I loved Good Omens - I would recommend that if anyone asked for suggestions.

  10. Oh, but I loved The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Planning to listen to it also, but later when I can love it all over again. Listening to Gaiman read The Graveyard Book was mesmerizing--I listened to it in the car and missed my exit.
