Staff Reviews

The newest Neil Gaiman will leave you wandering the Sussex landscape for a while after reading the final pages. Atmospheric and engaging, where the magical hides behind the ordinary, and the terrible shows up at your dinner table, this is a classic Gaiman horror, and slightly reminiscent of Clive Barker. In addition to the fantastical, Gaiman explores with heart and depth the vulnerability, fear, anxiety and helplessness of childhood in the face of adult power. You will relate to the narrator as you remember the nightmares of your own childhood, and the charm of the heroism found within these pages will have you wishing for more.

— Kim


A brilliantly imaginative and poignant fairy tale from the modern master of wonder and terror, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is Neil Gaiman's first new novel for adults since his #1 New York Times bestseller Anansi Boys.

This bewitching and harrowing tale of mystery and survival, and memory and magic, makes the impossible all too real...
