This is the 2nd Neil Gaiman book I've listened to. Really well defined, memorable characters and worlds. Funny analogies and witty sentences. Very entertaining.
I'm going to recommend it to my friends.
Neil Gaiman is a great author and narrator. This particular book just didn't "awe" me like his others have. His narrations are great but the use of echo and occasional music was to infrequent to be a real part of the experience and often just pulled me away from the story. The story itself took over half the book before I really became interested and even then I made myself finish it. It never really hooked me I guess.
A fantastic tale as always for Neil Gaiman. Creating a world in the cracks of our world, so close, as if we would only have to reach out to touch it.
This tantalizing closeness characterizes the tale he weaves, and made me lean in closer to the radio to engage.
The only issue I take is the typical Gaiman vocals. When I lean in closer to hear the tale because otherwise I would not hear it. He is dramatic, and dynamic, but sometimes I cannot hear and then it is too loud. This and only this detracted from this story. For me.
He reads his book as I imagine he wrote it. I was amazed by the small vocal tweaks he gave to each of his characters to make them distinctive, and vital.
Neil Gaiman is an amazing story teller! Neverwhere is captivating from start to finish. I haven't been this swept away by an author and book since I read Narnia as a kid.
