Warning: This review contain spoilers

Although well-written and well-done, The Ocean at the End of the lane, was a depressing novel that made me cry for over an hour. Don't get me wrong, it was a great piece of literature, however it brought back personal memories. Such as when fluffy, the kitten died, it reminded how my fluffy cat died. At least the opal miner tried to apologize, my neighbors did not. The rest of the novel made me cry for other reasons. It was a wonderfully depressing book, but then again i am easily drawn to tears,
