Finished The Ocean at the End of the Lane.
Wow. Absolutely brilliant. So worth it. Its not the longest book but definitely worth picking up -
My blog review is a bit more detailed (not much though) -

How many boxes of Kleenex?

I was on a bus when I finished it so I had to fight to keep my emotions intact. :D

I know! :o I finished The Graveyard Book a couple of days ago, now I looked around on my shelf and I didn't feel like anything I have on it... :(
So I picked up Good Omens again ;)

But I actually long for something fantasy... I wants magic and dragons and fairies and I'll be happy :D

I loved the Graveyard book. Quite possibly still one of my favourite ever books. Why not try the book its based on (The Jungle Book) for a comparison exercise.

Very true :D

Halfway through Cherry by Sara Wheeler. the biography of Apsley Cherry-Garrard

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apsley_Cherry-Garrard

I read The Worst Journey in the World many years ago and this is an excellent book to go with that.
