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...

    Anyone rating this book badly does not understand Gaiman‘s writing. He is just on another level. He’s that good. His books are always incredible and have never failed to captivate me. This book was very well written and also very interesting. Some people also have said that it is a children’s book, from the eyes of a child. Not true. It is a childhood memory that is being reviewed by an adult. There are also some adult topics that may be inappropriate for children. I have always admired his talent of giving such grim topics such a fantastical mood. Not that I don’t admire his amazing talent as a writer in general. All of his books are worth a read. If you see a book with Niel Gaiman on the cover, buy it. Check it out. The money will definitely be worth it. And this book is also in that category. And if you’re mad your ebook didn’t download, then just buy it for real, for Pete‘s sake. All pages included, guaranteed.

    This is a book for children, not adults and should be advertised as such. Complete waste of my time and money but might be enjoyable for a 9 year old
