Paperback. Pub Date :2013-06-18 Pages: 256 Language: English Publisher: Headline Ome 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 butterflys 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.

4.5 Neil Gaiman, the man the myth the legend does it again...was there any doubt?

He narrates his own books and really who knows better the tone implied or the necessa...

I had to kind of psych myself up to dive in, though, because I do find the opal miner’s arrival difficult to read. In so...
