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.

"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)
I didn't like a thing about this book. It's very rare that I don't finish a book; almost never. The story seemed to wind around inside itself and never go anywhere.
I THOUGHT I WAS DOWNLOADING A FANTASTIC BOOK BY READING THE REVIEWS. IT WAS SO BORING, I FAST FORWARDED THROUGH MOST OF IT JUST TO GET TO THE END TO FIND OUT WHAT FINALLY HAPPENS. MY FRIEND TOLD ME THE SAME THING ABOUT THIS DOWNLOAD.
average and trying too hard, thats the best i say for this book. though it has a interesting plot it was badly executed and is somewhat predictable. combined with cheesy sound effects that make it hard to under stand important details it just not worth the time. aside form this all if can say is that it is ok and reader can finish the book.
Gaiman's narration was incredible, I often found myself wondering how such a gifted writer could also be such a dynamic reader. I definitely recommend this audio book.
