Publisher Description

Neverwhere is the stunningly original first novel from Neil Gaiman, the bestselling and prizewinning author of The Ocean at the End of the Lane and American Gods. Wired called it 'the sort of book Terry Pratchett might produce if he spent a month locked in a cellar with Frank Kafka'. This is a must-read for all those who loved Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell or the magical world of J.K. Rowling.

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.

Ihannibal ,

Great read, well-developed characters.

Especially given it’s quite a short one.

My most memorable read

Where do I start! This such a magical and tantalising book I could not put it down. Neverwhere was the first book I ever read with out being forced to read and so holds a very special place in my heart as it opened a whole new world of reading for me. Gaiman has such a baeutifully creative mind and never ceases to impress. I would certainy say that this is by far his best book yet!
