Об этой аудиокниге

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.”

    Richard Mayhew is drawn into the world of London Below when he helps a young girl who is lying bleeding on a London street and finds that once you leave London Above, there is no going back.This is one of the best books that I read in 2004

    An unassuming young financier helps an injured girl, is made nearly invisible, and travels to the Underside, a bizarre world underneath / entangled with the London Underground. It's an enjoyable read, but a lot of it seems recycled from every mythic journey ever. There were times when I thought the characters were meant to be references, but then I couldn't identify the reference.

    Oh Neil, what happened here? I never expected to read anything by you that didn't absolutely blow me away, but this book, while being a page-turner, and having a fantastic end and a great villain, felt sterile and soulless in comparison to all of your other work. I think a lot of that can be attributed to the shallow world-building that's at play. London-below and the characters that inhabit it were given neither enough time nor enough explanation to resonate with me, and the two lackeys of the main villain, Mr. Coop and Mr. Vandemar, just seemed so...random, and out of place. In fact, that's a perfect way to describe a lot of the stuff in this book: random and out of place. Definitely still worth a read, just don't expect it to stick with you after the fact.

    Clever and charming. Having read only a few other Gaiman offerings (Sandman, Coraline, Stardust, Good Omens), I found this story filled with unexpected moments. The audiobook was suspenseful and funny, and makes me want to go pick up another Gaiman book right away.

    I loved this book. It's a fairy story for adults, full of magic and cruelty. The characters were wonderfully fleshed out. But it had a touch of reality when it talked of the people who slipped through the cracks. It's one to read again.

    One of my favorite Neil Gaiman books! Also a graphic novel and a TV miniseries; I believe that this is a novel where he wrote the screenplay first. The TV series is a little out there, and may not be everyone's cup of tea (wait, that's Hitchhiker's Guide ...), but it worth watching if you enjoy things like the old-school Doctor Who and Black Adder and maybe even Stranger Things. It's a little offbeat, that's all I'm saying. The book and graphic novel are too.

    Neverwhere is a clear example of the range and depth in which Gaiman creates his worlds. An adult Harry Potter of sorts, if I am to use a tired comparison. Exciting from start to finish.

    One of my favorite Gaiman novels. Urban / fantasy / horror featuring a London Above and a London Below. Creepy and atmospheric rather than traditional horror although there are a few graphic bits. An Everyman accidentally opens a door into a parallel Lo Don pursued by two nasty assassins. Misters Croup and Vandemar are two of my favorite fictional baddies. Good late night / rainy day reading...the below London market is an amazing creation.

    This was a fantasy book about a man named Richard who "falls through the cracks" into an alternate, Underground world below London. Although gruesome in parts, the story was interesting enough to keep me hooked. And I liked all the characters. It was a little slow in the middle, but not for long. I really liked the ending, an important part of any story.

    Richard Mayhew seems to be someone who is pushed and pulled by everyone in his life. His decision to help a wounded girl on the streets, instead of trying to impress his fiance (Jessica), proves to be the start of a fantastic journey in a place called London Below. Unbeknownst to him and all occupiers of London Above, a world with rules, dangers, magic, and its own unique economy exists in the cracks of society. Neil Gaiman does wonderful work layering and tucking a world of magic in the mundane city of London. Rather than fairies and dragons, humanoid creatures survive in the depths of sewers; as someone who has read very little urban fantasy, it was refreshing and fun to read something that departs from original tropes.
