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)

    "Almost returned..."

    struggled to finish. didn't really resonate with me. Plus, the hero was maddeningly annoying. There were enough plot twists and character developments to see it through however.

    "very interesting concept and well executed story."

    I really enjoyed this book. The writing style was excellent and the story intriguiing. some parts did run a bit slow, but I think that was necessary for the development. The 2 villains were truly creepy gents.

    Story
    "Morbid & Depressing"

    I was hoping for a epic fantasy & thought I'd give this book a try due to its decent reviews. Unfortunately this book was a horrible disappointment. The only reason I finished was because I paid for it & kept hoping it would get better - it only got worse. Typical epic fantasy books give you a main character you envy & an exciting world you would happily escape to - this novel gives neither. In fact, I would have likely killed myself very early in the story if I were the pathetic main character trapped in the drab underworld he finds himself in. I cannot fathom why this has the relatively positive reviews it's received. If you enjoy epic fantasies, look elsewhere.

    Story
    "Good not Great"

    This was a okay book but I just couldn't get into it like his others. It could also be the narrator's fault. He makes it sound so calm even when there is action going on. I'll come back to this book and listen to it again in the future.

    "Brilliant..."
    What did you love best about Neverwhere?

    Wonderful reading and audio production of a baroque tale for anyone who questions what their life would be like should the magical lands of their childhood suddenly open up to them as an adult ...offering the grit, enchantment, adventure and darkness that lead to a deeper and more fulfilling life. Worth every second.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it made me feel like a child again...


    What about Neil Gaiman’s performance did you like?

    the reading was the best I have heard yet.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending, which of course, I will never give away.


    Any additional comments?

    KEEP IT UP!

    Story
    "Annoying auditory special effects"

    The story and narrator are fine, but the editing is atrocious. Horrible echo special effects are applied often, making it hard to understand the narrator. Weird musical jingles are played randomly. Sound is not balanced, with the narrator almost impossible to hear sometimes. I never thought I could be so annoyed by an audio book.
