THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE is a fable that reshapes modern fantasy: moving, terrifying and elegiac - as pure as a dream, as delicate as a butterfly's wing, as dangerous as a knife in the dark - from storytelling genius Neil Gaiman. It began for our narrator forty years ago when the family lodger stole their car and committed suicide in it, stirring up ancient powers best left undisturbed. Dark creatures from beyond this world are on the loose, and it will take everything our narrator has just to stay alive: there is primal horror here, and menace unleashed - within his family and from the forces that have gathered to destroy it. His only defence is three women, on a farm at the end of the lane. The youngest of them claims that her duckpond is an ocean. The oldest can remember the Big Bang.

“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
