Publisher's Summary

Under the streets of London there's a world most people could never even dream of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and pale girls in black velvet. Richard Mayhew is a young businessman who is about to find out more than he bargained for about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his safe and predictable life and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and yet utterly bizarre.
There's a girl named Door, an Angel called Islington, an Earl who holds Court on the carriage of a Tube train, a Beast in a labyrinth, and dangers and delights beyond imagining.... And Richard, who only wants to go home, is to find a strange destiny waiting for him below the streets of his native city.

One of the pleasures of life is to discover a terrific new book/writer. I have only just come across Neil Gaiman and then to download this book with the author narrating was a double pleasure. A work of incredible imagination which uses history, culture through the ages, religious icons and the London Underground to weave a true tale of fantasy, an alternative parallel universe under the feet of people in the city. Leaves many erstwhile fantasy writers books dead in their tracks. The author brings each of his characters to life with subtle inflections of voice, I will certainly try his other works. Do yourself a treat and listen or read you won't be disappointed.

Neil Gaiman at his best!

Where does Neverwhere rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

hmm, it's up there with all my favourites. I would read this again and again!

What did you like best about this story?

I didn't see the twist coming! He had me fooled all the way. Satisfying ending!

Which character – as performed by Neil Gaiman – was your favorite?

I loved Hunter. And Islington. Listen, and you'll find out why.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, but why the heck would I give it away? That's for the listeners to find out!

Any additional comments?

Some have said this is not true Neil Gaiman style, but I have to disagree. Perhaps the protagonist of this book reminded me of the protagonist in Gaiman's novel 'Anansi boys', but it didn't detract from the novel, only made him more predictable in the sense that I knew where he would end up at the finish.

For another great read/listen of Gaiman's, tuck into 'The Graveyard Book', it's a good'un!
