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.

    "Utterly marvellous !"

    This is an interventive and throughly compelling book set in an alternate London. A London that contains sewer people, rat speakers, and adventure. A London that will sound familar but is unrecognisable. The tale follows Richard and his life as he moves from Scotland to London and everything changes (or does it ?) when he has a chance encounter with an injured girl. Give it a go it is entering, moving, amusing and most of all imaginative .

    "Best"

    The story starts slowly - and for the first chapter or so I wasn't convinced it was much good. But it gradually wove itself into one of the best and immersive stories ever!

    "Not enthralling."

    I didn't hate this. But I struggled to suspend my disbelief. At no point did I doubt the protagonist would succeed. I also felt that the London place names and locations were somewhat shoehorned in.

    Not a classic, but perhaps something that would benefit from a movie production put behind it.

    "nice single read, offering an easy access story"

    Great read offering something different but familiar. Reminded me of harry potter in a whistle stop tour type fashion.

    "The medium seems to matter"

    I loved this as a physical book, but not so much as an audiobook. Strange but true. I don't think this is down to the performance, but somehow there was more room to spread out in my head when I read it from the page.
