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. (Goodreads Synopsis)

Neverwhere is a delightful tale that captured my imagination right from the first page. I love the quirky characters, and the story moves at a fast-pace with plenty of excitement and surprise along the way. I think this is my favourite Neil Gaiman book so far.

  1. Hallo!
    Ich lese zur Zeit den Roman von Neil Gaiman "American Gods". Den hast du bestimmt gelesen. Ich habe noch keinen bestimmt Eindruck, aber es versuche ihn zu lesen, weil Fantasie nicht so mein Ding ist.
