3/20, 阅读计划 2014 - the OCEAN at THE END of the LANE ~ Neil Gaimen
The nameless, bookish, loner narrator, recounting what happened when he was 7.
The mysterious and magical Hempstock family, the Old Mrs, Ginne, Lettie.
Short read. not quite sure what to make of it. Feels almost like a children book
“Adults follow paths. Children explore. Adults are content to walk the same way, hundreds of times, or thousands; perhaps it never occurs to adults to step off the paths, to creep beneath rhododendrons, to find the spaces between fences. I was a child, which meant that I knew a dozen different ways of getting out of our property and into the lane, ways that would not involve walking down our drive.”
