Gr 7 Up—Two young men named Vic and Enn walk down the street, trying to find their friend's party, when they come across a house playing loud music that draws them in. Vic has always been popular, and he tries to give Enn advice on talking to pretty girls. Both start talking to different young women, but they soon discover that the girls and the party are not what they appear to be. This graphic novel is based on Gaiman's Locus Award-winning story, which was previously published in his Fragile Things and M Is For Magic anthologies. The graphic novel format works seamlessly with the narrative. The ink-and-watercolor artwork has a surreal, luminous quality that deftly captures glowing eyes, waves of music, lamp light, and the characters' emotional turmoil. Teens cannot help but notice this title's striking illustrations and think about which panels would look best framed on their walls. VERDICT For fans of surreal fantasy, inspired writing and artwork, and Gaiman.—Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library
Praise for Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane:
Gaiman's "mind is a dark fathomless ocean, and every time I sink into it, this world fades, replaced by one far more terrible and beautiful in which I will happily drown."--Benjamin Percy, The New York Times
"How do you decide to read How to Talk to Girls at Parties? You just read it!I'm looking forward to adaptations of more Neil Gaiman short stories from Dark Horse, up next is another of my favorites, Troll Bridge. I can't wait!” - Comic Spectrum
"Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba, manage to create a strangely unique place in the everyday world that Gaiman has created. I will admit I loved the brilliant elegance of the "poem," despite the strangeness of the origin. The artwork manages to highlight some of the stranger but subtle parts of the story well and continues the two's amazing work.” - Graphic Policy
"How To Talk To Girls At Parties" was already a masterpiece, award winning short story and now it's a masterpiece of a graphic novel that, honestly, everyone should read.” - Multiversity
"This graphic novel can be enjoyed by all ages and its magic lies in it being experienced differently and successfully for each.” - AiPT!
"So yeah. HTTTGAP is really, really good, the exact kind of thing I look for in a Neil Gaiman story. Its got what I want, yet it changes just enough to make it stand apart from his other works. Its normal until it isnt, and really, isnt that what we want from any story?” - We the Nerdy
"The collaboration of the trio of creators provides a story that covers all the frailties of human interaction. There is a certain sadness prevalent in the book; the sadness of experiences long gone for the girls, the sadness that maybe Vic is pretyy much how Vic will be for the rest of his life. Then there is Enn, who hears poetry, who listens and despite his best intentions, remains alone. Still having been where Enn is, I think he will be fine.” - Comic Crusaders”
" Between the dialogue we get from certain characters and the wonderful imaginative illustrations, there’s a lot to soak in. It’s truly an artistic masterpiece in my eyes.” -Bleeding Cool

Two 15-year-old boys, Enn and Vic, gatecrash a party Vic has heard about. Confident Vic wants to kiss the most mesmerizing girl there, while self-doubting Enn expects to end up "in the kitchen listening to somebody's mum going on about politics or poetry or something." There are only young women at the party, and they, along with the unusual pulsating music, draw the boys in.
The scenes are well-drawn, many with a celebratory wildness like a bacchanal. The girls are preternaturally pretty, with large light-filled eyes, and they may not be all that they seem.
Gaiman's writing is always a cut above others in this genre, and the combination with the Brazilian makes for a winning, albeit pretty brief, read.
