9780062255662: The Ocean At The End Of The Lane
Críticas:

"Poignant and heartbreaking, eloquent and frightening, impeccably rendered, it's a fable that reminds us how our lives are shaped by childhood experiences, what we gain from them and the price we pay."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"[W]orthy of a sleepless night . . . a fairy tale for adults that explores both innocence lost and the enthusiasm for seeing what's past one's proverbial fence . . . Gaiman is a master of creating worlds just a step to the left of our own."--USA Today on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE

"Remarkable . . . wrenchingly, gorgeously elegiac. . . . [I]n The Ocean at the End of the Lane, [Gaiman] summons up childhood magic and adventure while acknowledging their irrevocable loss, and he stitches the elegiac contradictions together so tightly that you won't see the seams."--Star Tribune (Minneapolis) on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE

"[A] compelling tale for all ages . . . entirely absorbing and wholly moving."--New York Daily News on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE

"[A] story concerning the bewildering gulf between the innocent and the authoritative, the powerless and the powerful, the child and the adult. . . . Ocean is a novel to approach without caution; the author is clearly operating at the height of his career."--The Atlantic Wire on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE

"This slim novel, gorgeously written, keeps its talons in you long after you've finished."--New York Post on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE

"The impotence of childhood is often the first thing sentimental adults forget about it; Gaiman is able to resurrect, with brutal immediacy, the abject misery of being unable to control one's own life."--Laura Miller, Salon

"[W]ry and freaky and finally sad. . . . This is how Gaiman works his charms. . . . He crafts his stories with one eye on the old world, on Irish folktales and Robin Hood and Camelot, and the other on particle physics and dark matter."--Chicago Tribune on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE

"Gaiman has crafted an achingly beautiful memoir of an imagination and a spellbinding story that sets three women at the center of everything. . . .[I]t's a meditation on memory and mortality, a creative reflection on how the defining moments of childhood can inhabit the worlds we imagine."--Journal Sentinel (Milwaukee, WI)

"Ocean has that nearly invisible prose that keeps the focus firmly on the storytelling, and not on the writing. . . . This simple exterior hides something much more interesting; in the same way that what looks like a pond can really be an ocean."--io9

"In Gaiman's latest romp through otherworldly adventure, a young boy discovers a neighboring family's supernatural secret. Soon his innocence is tested by ancient, magical forces, and he learns the power of true friendship. The result is a captivating read, equal parts sweet, sad, and spooky."--Parade on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE

"'The Ocean at the End of the Lane' is fun to read, filled with his trademarked blend of sinister whimsy. Gaiman's writing is like dangerous candy--you're certain there's ground glass somewhere, but it just tastes so good!"--Bookish (Houston Chronicle book blog)

"His prose is simple but poetic, his world strange but utterly believable--if he was South American we would call this magic realism rather than fantasy."--The Times (London) on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE
