Description

WINNER OF THE SPECSAVERS NATIONAL BOOK AWARDS 2013 BOOK OF THE YEAR

Dive into a magical novel of memory and the adventure of childhood, from one of the brightest, most brilliant writers of our generation.

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.

Couldn't put it down

What a beautiful book. Read it in one fell swoop. Thank you Mr Gaiman for yet another masterpiece.

Well what can I say ..... Don't really read much theses days; was listening to Radio 2 and the author was on chatting about this book and I thought sounds good so I will just chance a read ... How wrong I was this book is so thrilling with glints of childhood heart warming memories built upon a fantasy of spells and mystery. Got in by download on the day of release and Mr Don't read much didn't put it down until a day and a half later .... Finished and so enjoyed.

Thanks for bringing me back to the world of books
