wonderful story read most excellently by the author. His use of analogies was very refreshing. I hope to hear about more adventures of London underground in the future
fantastic and delightful story that winds a tale of such texture and proportion it feels as though you've seen it through Richard's eyes.
It got a bit weird at times but I'm glad I read it.
The narrator was good at creating and differentiating characters, but not always great with the moods, ie an action scene read slowly, a character in pain explained cheerfully. But overall good, would recommend.
This will be the first and last book I will listen to by Neil Gaiman. I may be missing out on some great stories but the struggle to finish this book has really turned me away to his story telling.
The story was bland with shallow characters. The narration was so slow that using the players 1.5x speed was the only way I could stand to listen to it.
The accent was appreciated as it fits the geographical location of the book but the slow nature of the reading and lack of feeling the character emotions in the telling of the book made this difficult to complete.
I've enjoyed novels like The Martian, Fear the Sky and Ready Player One and I felt it hard to stop listening to the story and the narrators. This was a very "long" listen and I really can't tell if it was just a completely dull story, poor narrating or both that turned me away from this. It felt like a slightly darker version of the Flushed Away animated movie, which was more enjoyable than this book. I would not recommend Neverwhere if you enjoy books similar to the ones I've stated above.
Never in all my reading years have I read a book (or in this case listened to one) that captured everything I wanted in it within it own pages. Gaiman has such talent for capturing his audiences not only with his storytelling, but with his imagination. This is one of my favorite books I've ever had the pleasure of reading (listened to, you know what I mean!)
Wow. A classically brilliant Gaiman tale told thrillingly by the author. Many passages demanded repeated listens - and I think I may divr right back into the beginning right now. You won't want to leave these characters and the remarkably engrossing world. Don't miss it!
8th time thru since 1997, has not lost anything. I have watched, read and now listened to it.
Gaiman does an impressive job reading his own work.
