National Bestseller

Selected as one of NPR's Top 100 Science Fiction and Fantasy Books of All Time

The #1 New York Times bestselling author's wildly successful first novel featuring his new Neverwhere tale, "How the Marquis Got His Coat Back."

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.

"A fantastic story that is both the stuff of dreams and nightmares" (San Diego Union-Tribune), Neil Gaiman's first solo novel has become a touchstone of urban fantasy, and a perennial favorite of readers everywhere.

"Delightful ... inventively horrific."

    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy por Douglas Adams (souloftherose)
    souloftherose: Although Neverwhere and The Hitchhiker's Guide (THHG) are different genres (the first is urban fantasy, the second comic science-fiction) I felt there was a lot of similarity between the characters of Richard Mayhew (in Neverwhere) and Arthur Dent (in THHG). Both are a kind of everyman with whom the reader can identify and both embody a certain 'Britishness'. And they're both stonkingly good books by British authors.… (mais)

This *was* my first time with Neverwhere, and I understand this iteration has its limitations (and some people’s enjoyment is severely curtailed by audio device speakers, such as phones). Nonetheless, with the blessing of a fantastic audio system in my car, this was *thoroughly* enjoyable. I loved the casting. Benedict Cumberbatch as Islington is perfection. 5 easy stars from me.

A fantasy adventure romp through a shadowy London. Lots of nice touches, well constructed, with fun well defined characters. It's well written, but does have lots of Gaimanesque flourishes, which can be a little distracting. But not too distracting. A good holiday read - fairly frivolous, but with enough to keep your mind turning over, and fun to boot. ( )

I didn't like this book until *after* I finished it. I really hated everything about it, actually. Neil Gaiman - and Orson Scott Card, for that matter - are amazing at concept, but I find their characters to be painfully flat, with a few exceptions (Card's Enchantment, Gaiman's Anansi Boys). So I end up mesmerized by the world, but not really caring what happens within it, yet the writing's still good enough that I'm willing to labor through. In the case of Neverwhere, for some reason the story didn't really sink in for me until after I shut the book. It all gelled together and suddenly I could appreciate it. Not really jumping at the bit to pick it up again, though. ( )

A very enjoyable read (listen, really) — read by the author himself. ( )
  claidheamdanns | Sep 26, 2023 |
One of the best fantasy books I've ever read - almost as good as the Lord of the Rings, in my humble opinion. A whole universe started and finished in a single book - Neil Gaiman for you, ladies and gentlemen! ( )

Gaiman blends history and legend to fashion a traditional tale of good versus evil, replete with tarnished nobility, violence, wizardry, heroism, betrayal, monsters and even a fallen angel. The result is uneven. His conception of London Below is intriguing, but his characters are too obviously symbolic (Door, for example, possesses the ability to open anything). Also, the plot seems a patchwork quilt of stock fantasy images. Adapted from Gaiman's screenplay for a BBC series, this tale would work better with fewer words and more pictures.

The novel is consistently witty, suspenseful, and hair-raisingly imaginative in its contemporary transpositions of familiar folk and mythic materials (one can read Neverwhere as a postmodernist punk Faerie Queene). Readers who've enjoyed the fantasy work of Tim Powers and William Browning Spencer won't want to miss this one. And, yes, Virginia, there really are alligators in those sewers--and Gaiman makes you believe it.
adicionada por Shortride | editarKirkus Reviews
 
The millions who know The Sandman, the spectacularly successful graphic novel series Gaiman writes, will have a jump start over other fantasy fans at conjuring the ambience of his London Below, but by no means should those others fail to make the setting's acquaintance. It is an Oz overrun by maniacs and monsters, and it becomes a Shangri-La for Richard. Excellent escapist fare.

I have never been to St. John's Wood. I dare not. I should be afraid of the innumerable night of fir trees, afraid to come upon a blood red cup and the beating of the wings of the Eagle.
– The Napoleon of Notting Hill, G. K. Chesterton
If ever though gavest hosen or shoon
Then every night and all
Sit thou down and put them on
And Christ receive thy soul

This aye night, this aye night
Every night and all
Fire and fleet and candlelight
And Christ receive thy soul

If ever thou gavest meat or drink
Then every night and all
The fire shall never make thee shrink
And Christ receive thy soul

There are four simple ways for the observant to tell Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemar apart: first, Mr. Vandemar is two and a half heads taller than Mr. Croup; secnod, Mr. Croup has eyes of a faded china blue, while Mr. Vandemar's eyes are brown; third, while Mr. Vandemar fashioned the rings he wears on his right hand out of the skulls of four ravens, Mr. Croup has no obvious jewelry; fourth, Mr. Croup likes words, while Mr. Vandemar is always hungry. Also, they look nothing at all alike.
