The Ocean at the End of the Lane By Neil Gaiman. This story 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.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman – review by AS Byatt. My review: it has all the ingredients of a proper old fairy tale - childhood fears, a magical farm, a wicked witch and a good fairy. Wonderful.
