really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy

I bought the Neverwhere audiobook hoping to not be disappointed, and I certainly got my wish. Gaiman has brought together a wonderful world beneath the one we walk on, and what's more, made me appreciate his skill as a story teller and audiobook narrator.

If there is anything to be criticized, it's that I think half of the book's appeal is in referencing the landmarks of London and telling story that makes anyone familiar with London look at those landmarks differently. This is a small drawback however, and not something that I think requires a ticket to Heathrow to remedy.

Only a few books actually carry me off into their worlds, leaving me at the end slighty dissatisfied that I couldn't stay with them after the last word was said, and so it is with Richard Mayhew's adventure into the Underworld. A great read (listen) and well worth your dollars.
