Book Review: Neverwhere
Author: Neil Gaiman
Rating: If You Have Time (Rating System)
Any Warnings: some language and violent scenes described.
Under the streets of London there’s a place most people could never even dream of. A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, knights in armour and pale girls in black velvet. This is the city of the people who have fallen between the cracks. Richard Mayhew, a young businessman, is going to find out more than enough about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his workday existence and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and utterly bizarre. And a strange destiny awaits him down here, beneath his native city: Neverwhere.
Purely for entertainment reading. I listened to this as a BBC production radio theater. Loved it. Drew me in immediately. I do not like most of Neil Gaiman’s books based on his obsession with Norse Mythology. However, this book was very original with many twists and turns.
