Book Review: Neverwhere

What do a salaryman, a noble lady, and a swashbuckling trader-of-favors all have in common? Turns out, not much, but that doesn’t stop them from banding together to solve a crime in the world hiding underneath London’s streets.

Nevewhere is an urban fantasy novel by Neil Gaiman (of Sandman and Stardust fame) that follows Richard Mayhew as one act of kindness tips him into the magical world of London Below.

There, Richard joins with the Lady Door, the Marquis de Carabas, and Huntress as they attempt to learn who murdered Door’s family, all the while, keeping the lady safe from a pair of nasty assassins named Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemar.

You’ll encounter rat-speakers, floating markets, dangerous bridges, even an angel, and more, as you follow Richard and the gang along their fast-paced adventure.

You won’t be able to put this book down. I certainly couldn’t. It’s one of those books I truly wish I had the pleasure to read again with fresh eyes.

Psst: there’s also a TV show version.
