Summary:

National Bestseller
Selected as one of NPR’s Top 100 Science Fiction and Fantasy Books of All Time
The #1 New York Times bestselling 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 everywhere.
“Delightful … inventively horrific.”

    This book was superb. I loved all the characters but I think I am really partial to the Marquis. I hope there is another visit to the “ under London”by Neil Gaiman, I hated for this last visit to end.

    Now a Gaiman fan. Well, okay, I was after reading and listening to American Gods. I will look for more from this incredible artist. He reads very well and what better combination could be asked for--the author (a voice actor) reads his own work. Recommended!

    What a great story! We listened every night together. What a great couple to do. Imaginative Characters were amazing and the narration was the best by the author

  • Rivkah Marom

    Plot and story average though well written. Read well by the narrator though found the tone of bored indifference with which he ended most sentences rather iritating.

  • Matilda Söderbacka

    Did not personally care for the story although the narration was well done.

  • Zoe Lewis

    Neil Gaiman somehow managed to write a book that is as intense as it is disaffecting. The story is brilliant, but the characters are distant and, at times, frustrating. I didn't fall in love with any of them. Perhaps, Gaiman did this purposefully so that his characters felt like the shadows of Neverwhere. I couldn't say.
