Description

Originally published in 1997, Neil Gaiman’s darkly fantastic and enthralling first novel, Neverwhere, heralded the arrival of a ground breakingly talented author in the urban fantasy genre. Neverwhere is set in London, but only half is the London you think you know.

Richard Mayhew, a young London businessman with good intentions and an ordinary life just wants to marry his fiance and be happy. But when he comes across a girl bleeding on the sidewalk, his life changes forever when he stops to help her. Little did he know that this act of pure kindness would plunge him headfirst into a world he couldn’t even fathom existed.

Neil Gaiman weaves a magical story that completely encompasses the reader, and as you slip through the cracks of reality with Richard you will never look back once you enter Neverwhere. The shadowy underground, for which the novel is named, is a counterpart to London, a dark depth filled with monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and perhaps the key to Richards salvation.

Will Richard ever get home, can he ever reconnect with the world above that he was once part of? Neverwhere is a story of friendship, of kindness, and a story of survival.
