Neverwhere is the stunningly original first novel from Neil Gaiman, the bestselling and prizewinning author of The Ocean at the End of the Lane and American Gods. Wired called it 'the sort of book Terry Pratchett might produce if he spent a month locked in a cellar with Frank Kafka'. This is a must-read for all those who loved Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell or the magical world of J.K. Rowling.Under the streets of London there's a world most people could never even dream of. A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and pale girls in black velvet. Richard Mayhew is a young businessman who is about to find out more than he bargained for about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his safe and predictable life and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and yet utterly bizarre. There's a girl named Door, an Angel called Islington, an Earl who holds Court on the carriage of a Tube train, a Beast in a labyrinth, and dangers and delights beyond imagining . . . And Richard, who only wants to go home, is to find a strange destiny waiting for him below the streets of his native city.Includes extra material exclusive to this Headline Review edition.

This book is amazing... As with all of Neil Gaiman's works, it seems the beautiful, strange literature of a slightly different mind. Even though its his first novel, I think that this one is even better than American Gods because its a bit easier to get into. His colourful mind is just so interesting and twisted, if you read this you'll definately be looking for the rest of his books. I would also highly recommend 'Fragile Things' as a nice little compilation to read when you dont feel like something so big to chew on. A wonderful collection of delightfully twisted short stories :]
Five stars for neverwhere!

Much better than the comic, and the television series. Its much darker and odder. Also it makes more sense. It is a bit different from some of his other writing, probably has the most in common with Sandman. With all the mythical sort of characters and the rules of London Below.

It is a bit more adult than the TV series too.
