Staff Reviews


One of the reasons why I love Neil Gaiman’s stories is that he can take the seemingly boring, mundane aspects of our everyday world and turn them on their heads. In Neverwhere, we follow Richard Mayhew who after helping a strange young woman found dying on the sidewalk, soon finds himself magically expelled from his very own existence in the city of London to the subterranean world of “London Below.” Accompanied by Door, who has the strange ability to open a doorway to any place imaginable, and “the Marquis de Carabas,” a mysterious man whose name is just as ridiculous as himself, Richard must traverse the many twisting tunnels and hidden areas of London Below to find a way back to the life that left him behind. Populated with the likes of supernatural assassins, rat talkers, vampire-like beings called “Velvets,” and a guardian angel, Neverwhere is an imaginative journey through the unseen and discarded places and stories of London.

— Nicholas

Description


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 everywhere.
