This week's Musing Monday at Should Be Reading: "Tell us what you're reading right now - what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; why you are (or, aren't) enjoying it."
"The Ocean at the End of the Lane" is told from the point of view of an unnamed narrator. He has come back to his home town for a funeral, and the visit triggers his memories of strange occurrences from his childhood. It all started with their family lodger committing suicide, and inadvertently awakening an ancient, dark power. Now the evil force is threatening the narrator's life, and the safety of his family. With no one to help him, he turns to the three women who live at the end of their lane - the oldest of which believes that she remembers the Big Bang, and the youngest insists that it is not a duckpond that is in their backyard, but an ocean.
What about you? What are you reading at the moment?
