Editorial Reviews

SFRevu on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE
“Part fable, part fairy tale and part cautionary tale, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is by turns hauntingly beautiful, painfully intense, funny, witty, wise, scary, and heart wrenchingly sad.”
The Guardian on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE
“A terrifying shift in the nature of things lies at the heart of Neil Gaimain’s rich new novel.”
Denver Post on ANANSI BOYS
“[T]here isn’t much Gaiman can’t do when it comes to writing.”
Salon on ANANSI BOYS
“A hybrid of folk tale and farce that freely partakes of the comic wealth in each, slipping effortlessly back and forth between them . . . Anansi Boys is Gaiman’s tribute to [Anansi’s] trickster spirit, as nimble and resourceful as his own imagination.”
George R. R. Martin on AMERICAN GODS
“Original, engrossing, and endlessly inventive; a picaresque journey across America where the travelers are even stranger than the roadside attractions.”
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“There is a stark simplicity in Mr. Gaiman’s prose in this deceptively dark tale of how far men will go to achieve their heart’s desire only to find that the achievement pales in comparison to the desiring.”

    ebook better than paper? This one is!

    For the first time I have to say that an ebook is better than the paper version. This Enhanced Multimedia Edition is worth every penny. With Neil Gaiman reading the book backed by a string quartet providing perfect mood music, plus the amazing illustrations, this book is perfect. Another great story from Neil on the nature of revenge. Truly, a dish served very cold and calculating.

    I bought this title as an eBook. It won't display on my iPhone or PC Nook reader. I don't know what technology is being used, but I am very disappointed that B&N is selling a product that can't be used with their reader. I may be missing something, but I also don't see anything in the book descripting to warn me that I won't be able to read the content on my software.

    I purchased this today, and the sales page says that it's available for NOOK devices and apps. It does not open on my iPad or on my Windows 8 PC.

    Apparently only for NOOK devices. I am NOT a happy camper!

    what a cunningly dark story!
    I don't want to go into too many details because it would ruin the suspense.

    This is such a great edition which is illustrated by Eddie Campbell -- it resembles a scrapbook with the text interspersed with illustrations and graphic art panels and vice versa -- each element punctuates and furthers the story.
