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 an ocean. The oldest can remember the Big Bang.



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.

  • Never read Gaiman? You're missing out.

    by on

    As always, what Gaiman has given in The Ocean at the End of the Lane is something that gently takes you by the hand, and leads you into places you never imagined existed. This time it's a pretty creepy, dark kind of place, while at the same time it is homely and warm.

    Gaiman takes the unusual and makes it matter of fact. There's a deceptive everyday ordinariness about it, when often it's anything but.

    Gaiman is one of those few authors that never disappoint. I love everything he's written, and I'm positive I will continue to do so for as long as he writes (which I hope is a long time.)

  • Unsettling and beautiful

    by on

    Ocean At The End Of The Lane feels more subtle than some of Neil Gaiman's previous work, and not just because of its slight extent. It feels more carefully crafted, and the result is a beautiful, eerie story which taps in to all the magic and unsettling loneliness of childhood. Very impressive.
