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.

©2000 Neil Gaiman (P)2012 Headline Digital

    A very enjoyable fantasy story. A category that I would not normally choose. A real page turner! I will search out other publications by this author.

    "Entertaining"

    Always a pleasure to read a book by Neil Gaiman, and also to listen to one read by the man himself. It's a great story and the audio book is top notch.

    "Disappointed"

    I think I might return this book. I'm only half way through and I can't find the motivation to continue listening.
    The first I listened to from Gaiman was The Graveyard Book and I enjoyed it immensely. Then I bought American Gods and it was sensational. (This one was narrated by several different voices and all of them exceptionally good. )
    I think my problem might all be with the narration after all because the style that worked perfectly well for the Graveyard story being a children's book is just awkward and strange when the story is an adult one. Neil Gaiman is narrating the book himself and while I like his voice, the style, at some length, sounds as if the audience were all supposed to be little children. This gets a bit irritating and I tend to find I've been listening for fifteen minutes and never paid attention to any of it.
    I found the description of the book very intriguing, which made me want to buy it, and I still think that the story might be a whole lot better than what the writer does justice to with the style of reading.
    This is why I wouldn't think it fair to give it any less than 3 starts and one day I might take the printed version out of the library and see if that way I'm able to appreciate the story.

    Story
    "Brilliant and hugely imaginative"

    I loved this book and was so drawn in I could not stop listening. The narration was perfect and the range of voices excellent. I wondered what I was getting into at the start but then it took off and became more and more convincing.

    Story
    "Most enjoyable fantasy"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if you like something different, somewhere between a ghost story and fantasy, you should enjoy this.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the author's imagination which comes across well in the story. It seemed to take me through an ongoing journey with lots of different elements.


    Which character – as performed by Neil Gaiman – was your favourite?

    Door, although all the narration and characterisation in voice was good. As the narrater is also the author, to me it brought extra enjoyment, as it was read in the way it was meant to be.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it was good to pick up and put down (audiably speaking)!


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second book by this author and I will read more.

    "Great story but lay off the accents"

    A really enjoyable listen ruined only slightly by Gaiman's dodgy Scottish accent which often slides into Welsh!

    "Better to read"
    What disappointed you about Neverwhere?

    I found the characters to be incredibly difficult to relate to with the pretend accents and falsetto female voices.


    What could Neil Gaiman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Use a voice actor to read the book.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Neil Gaiman?

    Stephen Fry or Hugh Laurie


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and frustration


    Any additional comments?

    I would prefer to read this book.
