Neil Gaiman‘s latest book The Ocean at the End of the Lane, is now available and it is bringing out some unexpectedly poignant creativity in reviewers.
I fell in love with this sentence from Dwight Silverman‘s review in The Houston Chronicle:

A more glowing review appeared in The Star in which writer William Alexander says:
and finally- Greg Carpenter of Pop Matters writes:
“The book is focused, lyrical, and profoundly perceptive in its exploration of childhood and memory, and it’s also quite frightening—like one of Truman Capote’s holiday stories by way of Stephen King.”

If you’ve found a quote about the book that made you laugh or moved you, please share!
