We have creepy and cute characters from this week’s book and a very special tv series. Listen if you dare!
Book: ‘The Ocean At The End Of The Lane’ by Neil Gaiman
- A short novel narrated by a nameless man who returns to his home town for a funeral and finds himself remembering fantastical memories from his childhood where a girl named Lettie saved him from a number of different evils.
- From the inside flap: “It is a stirring, terrifying, and elegiac fable as delicate as a butterfly’s wing and as menacing as a knife in the dark.”
- Mel dubs it #CreepyCute as only Neil Gaiman can do.
- Additionally, Mr. Gaiman narrates the audiobook, which is fantastic!
TV Series: ‘Jack Of All Trades’
- Stars Bruce Campbell and Angela Marie Dotchin and aired in 2000.
- A tongue-firmly-in-cheek tale of an American Spy fighting the good fight against Napoleon while stationed on a little island in the West Indes. (It’s not quite historically accurate so don’t get your knickers in a knot. ~ M)
- It’s fun! It’s swashbuckling! IT HAS BRUCE CAMPBELL!
- If this opening sequence doesn’t bring a small to your face, you have a cold dead heart…..
