Publisher's Summary

National Best Seller

Selected as one of NPR's Top 100 Science Fiction and Fantasy Books of All Time

The number one New York Times best-selling author's wildly successful first novel featuring his new Neverwhere tale, "How the Marquis Got His Coat Back".

Richard Mayhew is a young man with a good heart and an ordinary life, which is changed forever when he stops to help a girl he finds bleeding on a London sidewalk. His small act of kindness propels him into a world he never dreamed existed. There are people who fall through the cracks, and Richard has become one of them. And he must learn to survive in this city of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels, if he is ever to return to the London that he knew.

"A fantastic story that is both the stuff of dreams and nightmares" (San Diego Union-Tribune), Neil Gaiman's first solo novel has become a touchstone of urban fantasy and a perennial favorite of readers and listeners everywhere.

©1996, 1997, 2014 Neil Gaiman (P)2007, 2017 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)

"Delightful…inventively horrific."(USA Today)

"[Gaiman] is, simply put, a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him in any media." (Stephen King)

    "Neverwhere is deeply engaging!"

    This was one of the best books I have read in years. 5 stars. The narration was excellent, but the story itself sells to the reader. A whole new take on "homeless underground" fantasy!

    "Incredible"

    I was absolutely transported with the writing and the perfect narration. I'm now one of the many Neil Gaiman fans anxious for more!

    Story
    "Not What I Expected, But Not Half Bad"

    I realized pretty early on in the story that this is not my type of genre and its probably meant for a younger age group. I returned the book but it stayed on my device, so I decided to finish it anyway because I have a hard time not completing books I started. In the end, the story and characters did grab my attention and I enjoyed the book but probably will not read more by this author. The plot was engaging, and bore a resemblance to Homer's The Odyssey, but parts of it seemed underdeveloped and focused more on descriptive language than on character or plot development. By the end, I was still a little confused what the whole point had been. The idea of the undercity of London was quite intriguing and very well described. There were humorous parts as well that gave me a good chuckle. The book is read by the author, which was cool, but at times I found the narration style too slow and tedious. Many sentences were dragged out as one would do maybe on the last line of a chapter for dramatic effect, except the entire book was narrated that way. It got annoying after a while. All in all, this seems like a story for a younger age group (despite the gruesome parts).

    "Heavenly story & performance!"

    Is there anything better than a Neil Gaiman story? Only if it's read and performed by the author himself. Then it's Heaven. ;-)

    "Clever and well read"

    It doesn't hurt that I could listen to Neil Gaiman talk all day but the book was well written and quite interesting. I'm a fan of his and this book doesn't disappoint.

    "Absolutely riveting and positively entertaining!"

    Incredible story, full of an immersive world, both full of life, and woven delicately with a fine blend of suspense, humor, despair, and discovery.

    "Is this all there is. Get used to it."

    Good story and makes you think about the choices we make as we live our lives. The need to fulfill our desires for life and adventure or to be satisfied or happy with day to day living.
