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)

    "Loved it"

    I love his stories, but having this author read his book was like a bedtime story. By far the best read and listen I have found yet.

    "Never put down should be the title"

    I originally read this book in paperback. Once I found out how great audible was, I had to revisit one of my life long favorite books.

    "Neverwhere"

    Brilliant storytelling and superb narration by the author. If you listen to any Neil Gaiman audio make sure you listen to Neil reading his own work. It's spectacular.

    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

    "Neil Gaimen creativity and vision is a rarity!"

    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.

    Story
    "A bit surreal, but really good"

    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.

    Story
    "Never in all my readings...."

    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!)
