Publisher's Summary

Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever.

Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations. And it is the home of Door, the girl whom Richard rescued, and whom, if he is ever to return home, he must now help in her mission to preserve this strange underworld kingdom from a mysterious figure determined to destroy it.

If Tim Burton rewrote Phantom of the Opera, if Jack Finney had a dark side, if you rolled up the best of Clive Barker, Peter Straub, and Caleb Carr into one, you still wouldn't have Neil Gaiman. In Neverwhere, he delivers one of the most absorbing reads to come along in years.

©1996, 1997 Neil Gaiman; (P)2007 HarperCollins Publishers

What the Critics Say

"Gaiman's gift for mixing the absurd with the frightful gives this novel the feeling of a bedtime story with adult sophistication. Readers will find themselves as unable to escape this tale as the characters themselves." (Library Journal)
"[Gaiman] is, simply put, a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him in any media." (Stephen King)

    "A wonderful wonderful story with great narration "

    As a hardcore Neil Gaiman fan, I adored this. I honestly think it's a much better than the print edition since you also get the author's narration, and this particular writer is one with an amazing voice and great reading skills.

    "Very unique"

    An interesting take on a kingdom. A slow start but the ending really brings the whole story togather. Pay attention and it will be that much more rewarding at the end

    "Knew Nothing, Loved It"

    This book was so great! I didn't know anything about the plot or characters, and I very much enjoyed the whole thing. I will be looking for more Neil Gaiman books!

    "Good story"

    I wasn't sure at first about the story but then I realized I was more than half way through and hooked. Definitely a good story and the mixed media telling of it was fun.

    "give it a chance. It's a great book."

    at the end of the second chapter I almost returned it for a refund. I thought this book was garbage. I decided to give it another shot because I couldn't find anything else I wanted to listen to, and I totally misjudged it. This is a great book very captivating just got to keep an open mind.

    "Very imaginative - Classic Gaiman"

    This is classic Neil Gaiman, as the story takes place at the intersection of the real world and an alternate world. Lucky for us, the readers, Neil has a large number of universes to explore.

    Many author read works suffer as a result. No so in this case; Mr. Gaiman really understands his characters and his voice acting is good enough to make the work come alive.

    I won't give anything away here, but if you are blessed with an excellent imagination, are accepting of alternate realities, and enjoy an old fashioned fairy tale, albeit a very dark one that explores the boundaries of sanity, then give this a try.

    "interesting book to listen to on a trip"

    I liked it and the time went by fast. It was an interesting premise. I, however, wasn't attached the characters.
