    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.

    "Never disappointed with Neil Gaiman."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Neverwhere to be better than the print version?

    No, I really enjoyed listening to this narrator's interpretation of the book. I was sorry when it ended


    What does Neil Gaiman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Listening to books on audio is a return to the days of childhood when someone read a story for you. The personality that can be put into the read itself enriches the story immeasurably.


    If you could rename Neverwhere, what would you call it?

    London Under

    Key West is a smuggler's paradise. All that's needed are the captains to run the contraband, and Breeze Albury is one of the best fishing captains on the Rock. He's in no mood to become the Machine's delivery boy, however. So the Machine sets out to persuade him. It starts by taking away Albury's livelihood and his freedom. But when the Machine threatens Albury's son, the washed-out wharf rat turns into a raging, sea-going vigilante.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I always love Hiassen charactors.


    Any additional comments?

    I was expecting more twisted, dark humor which is Hiassen's trademark. This book was well crafted, well read, and a good story, but nothing unexpected, really, and nothing like the usual twisted free for all that he can create.
