Neil Gaiman has the power to make you believe that anything is possible. His stories come to life, as if they really happened in some far off distant land. This story is no exception. A man returns home to attend a funeral and goes back to a farm near his childhood home. He is drawn to a pond at the end of the lane, where he met a childhood friend, Lettie. To describe what ensues after arriving at the pond would not do the story justice. It is imaginative, edgy, and almost lifelike. I will read it again in the future, because you can’t capture all the amazingness (it’s a word right?) once. I will always be surprised by Neil Gaiman, and what truly goes on in that brain of his. I wish I could walk around inside his world, and feel a number of adjectives as I do.
Happy Reading fellow book lovers!
