read: Neverwhere

NeverwhereNeverwhere by Neil Gaiman

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book kept me quite entertained over the course of a week and a couple of airplane rides. It is filled with interesting characters on a mad quest through a magical London that exists in parallel with the real London. The concept is not entirely original, but Neil's interpretation of Alice in Wonderland / Wizard of Oz is. The situations and motivations are darker and more sinister. The writing is, on the whole, rich, amusing, and inventive. I would not recommend this as a starting point for Mr. Gaiman's work. But it is a required stop on the journey. [More]
