It's like reading one of his short stories that got extended out further--which is basically what it is. It started as a short story for Amanda and then became more. For me, I want some good meaty goodness which, while this tale was enjoyable, it lacked the intricate meats I've come to enjoy from his proper novels.

It was a good little nibble of a story, but I too wanted something more meaty.
Fabulous movie-in-my-head descriptions.
The story meandered a bit down the lane and I thought I was going to see the ocean and really I saw a pond. It was a lovely walk though.

Neil is my favorite living author, and as such I have high expectations whenever I pick up something new that he has written. Ocean did not let me down. The personal nature of the work helped to create a new depth to the work, and I can't thank Neil enough for writing, and sharing, it with the rest of us. It was truly wonderful.
My 1st post: I really loved this book. It was reflective and intense in all the best ways and I've been looking for a way to say so to everyone who will listen, hence the posting. If you haven't read it pls do. If you have and shrugged, pls consider a 2nd read whilst feeling for subtexts on an emotional level...this operates at a really mythic/psychological level I think.

I finally got around to reading it. I enjoyed it a lot. Nice little twist at the end if you want to call it that. This story is very simple yet gives you a lot of think about.
Can't wait for them to ruin it with a movie.
