While not as dense or thorough as I'm accustomed to with Gaiman, "The Ocean at the End of the Lane" is still him through-and-through. Effectively blending the childish wonder and confusion found in works like "Bridge to Terabithea" or "Mary Poppins" and the enigmatic, powerful deities of Gaiman's own "American Gods" or the queens of fairy found in the works of Jim Butcher's "Dresen Files" series, this is one of those books that feels like it could work well for older juvenile, YA, and adult readers alike.
