This is the book that has it all for general fantasy fans, lovers of London, and dedicated Neil Gaiman readers. Traveling through abandoned London Underground stations and into the depths of a strange alternative world, main character Richard Matthew and his accumulated companions must face a city of monsters angels, saints and murderers as he struggles to return to his reality above.
True to form, Nail Gaiman remains a master story crafter, truly selling the idea that a wicked and twisted reality exists just beneath the feet of the average person walking the streets of London. And like other Gaiman books, Neverwhere has the same elements of dark humor running beneath the warped images and characters populating the pages of the story.
The Neverwhere audiobook has the added bonus of actually being narrated by Neil Gaiman himself. This is a recording that sounds like a private, intimate conversation, and Gaiman delivers every line and performs each individual character perfectly. How could he not? It’s his universe, his characters, and his story. He knows exactly how to tell his story, and makes an already marvelous tale even more sensational.
Nail Gaiman is a beloved author of sci-fi, horror and fantasy, as well as short fiction, theatre and graphic novels. He’s published other beloved titles such as American Gods, Good Omens and Coraline, and has won numerous awards during the course of his career, including the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, Newbery Medal, and Carnegie Medal in Literature.
