Amazing Experience

This was the first audio book I ever downloaded and I truly am better for it. I am afraid that other books will pale in comparison after this experience. Firstly, I did not read the book but did not feel lost in the story. Well done. In fact, closing my eyes, the imagery was incredible. Second, the cast was incredible. Third James McAvoy.

Wish I'd listened long ago!

I read "Neverwhere" years ago and loved it then. It was my introduction to Neil Gaiman. However, I am a slow reader and it was a hard read to penetrate. The concept of the two worlds was difficult for me to grasp for quite a while. Listening to the story being read dramatically was like opening a window and throwing a whole lot of light on everything from word one. Now I really truly love the story.

great story well told

Naturally the source material has an influence on an audio book and sometimes a good book can be ruined. That is not the case here. A high quality set of actors deliver a high quality audio performance.

Dark, yet all enveloping story line.

Dark story made really good by the cast of this BBC story. Enjoyed this very much but wish it were longer, also the end wad slightly predictable. All in all a good story made better by the cast.

Beautifully adapted and immaculately performed.

There are two Londons: the one we know, and the one populated by people who have slipped through the cracks. When Richard, a perfectly normal-seeming individual stops to help a badly injured girl, he starts the process of slipping through those cracks into a world he never knew existed. This world is made up of things we all know, yet do not know. It is populated by people strangely familiar, yet at odds with how they should be.

In this stellar performance of the Neil Gaiman book, the characters are vividly brought to life. The storyline of the original text is faithfully reproduced and the listener is taken on a spellbinding trip to a place which is easily recognisable, yet altered just enough to make it horribly different. As a sidenote, the out-takes included at the end of this performance were wonderfully funny. I can't recommend this performance highly enough.
