All remarks to Neil G. on Twitter have been very positive.

Never trust feedback like that as its only fans fawning and the likes.

I read @neilhimself The Ocean At The End Of The Lane last week. It's bloody wonderful, a great story of childhood & memory.

Turns out she's a journo and got a preview copy. :mrgreen:

I was really surprised that I was able to put a hold on it at the library! Had to double check it after seeing here that it's not out until June. I thought I could only hold a book once one of the libraries in the network actually had it. Turns out I can do it while they're waiting to acquire it! :D
