Waterstones Says

Ravishing illustrations by Elise Hurst transform a modern gothic classic into a work of visual art, as Neil Gaiman’s mighty The Ocean at the End of the Lane gets recast in an exquisite hardback edition. Perfect for a special gift or as a striking adornment to any bookshelf.

A special illustrated edition of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, the bestselling magical novel from master storyteller Neil Gaiman. Breathtaking illustrations by fine artist and illustrator, Elise Hurst.

This is what he remembers, as he sits by the ocean at the end of the lane:

A dead man on the back seat of the car, and warm milk at the farmhouse.
An ancient little girl, and an old woman who saw the moon being made.
A beautiful housekeeper with a monstrous smile.
And dark forces woken that were best left undisturbed.

They are memories hard to believe, waiting at the edge of things. The recollections of a man who thought he was lost but is now, perhaps, remembering a time when he was saved...

'Both a pitch-perfect fantasy and a moving examination of childhood memories and their effects on our adult selves ... superb.' - The Times

'Some books you read. Some books you enjoy. But some books just swallow you up, heart and soul.' - Joanne Harris

“Sussex by the Ocean”

I had wanted to read a novel by Neil Gaiman for some time but until this was forced upon me I hadn't the courage to do so. Gaiman works in so many formats that it is difficult to know what you are getting... More

“Really disappointed”

I'm not sure if my expectation was higher than it should have been, if I spoiled myself be reading this straight after one that I really enjoyed and just finished. Or if it just simply lacked.

I felt let down by... More
