Josephine’s #CBR5 Review #13 : Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman


Neil Gaiman is a genius. I believe this to be undisputed fact! I feel that is important to know before you read this review, as if you are looking for dispassionate analysis and carefully weighed opinion you will not find it here!

I would read the man’s bus tickets if he scribbled on and published them.

The essential premise of this Novel is that the underworld found in big cities; the one with the homeless and the different, the people you don’t make eye-contact with, the streets you avoid, the things you glimpse out of the corner of your eye and know better than to turn your head; they are not people and things on the periphery of our world but a whole other one.

The publisher’s quick summary: Richard Mayhew’s life is forever changed after he rescues a young girl named Door and finds himself living in a city of monsters, saints, murderers, and angels, and he must help Door on her mission to save this strange underworld kingdom from destruction.

And mine: THIS ROCKS!
