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 the 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 defense is three women, on a farm at the end of the lane. The youngest of them claims that her duckpond is ocean. The oldest can remember the Big Bang.

Magnificent read. Had the day off work and read the whole thing within a few hours. I was absolutely hooked from the first page. I love Neil Gaimans writing. He is an absoulute mastermind of fantasy. Already made 2 other people read it and they love it just as much

Unusual storyline but I couldn't put it down. Loved it.



Hard to put down


This is a quirky fantasy that both adults and teenage readers will enjoy. The book is short enough and gripping enough to make it a one sitting read. Characters are likeable and easy to empathise with. Recommended reading

Loved it!


Wonderful characters and really makes you think about the world of children - adults need to remember their lost worlds of imagination and limitless possibilities.

For those whose lives lack magic.
