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...A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn't thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she'd claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse where she once lived, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.A groundbreaking work as delicate as a butterfly's wing and as menacing as a knife in the dark, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is told with a rare understanding of all that makes us human, and shows the power of stories to reveal and shelter us from the darkness inside and out. --The Times (London) on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANEBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Neil GaimanPublisher: William Morrow & CompanyPublished: 06/03/2014ISBN: 9780062255662Pages: 181Weight: 0.40lbsSize: 7.90h x 5.00w x 0.60dReview Citations: People Weekly 06/16/2014 pg. 44New York Times Book Review 09/14/2014 pg. 28Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 163516 / Ocean at the End of the LaneReading Level: 5.3 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 8

A groundbreaking work as delicate as a butterfly's wing and as menacing as a knife in the dark, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is told with a rare understanding of all that makes us human, and shows the power of stories to reveal and shelter us from the darkness inside and out.
