Neverwhere – Neil Gaiman

I felt like I’d been on an extreme rollercoaster ride after reading this book.  We follow Richard Mayhew, a very ordinary Englishman, until he suddenly falls through a crack  into the alternate universe of London Below.  He wanders the subterranean world of the London Underground where he meets up with some very frightening beings, but there is enough humour in this book to make even the darkest moments entertaining.  I never knew what to expect or whether Mayhew would prevail against the dark forces right up until  the end.  The book is based on a six-part BBC TV series. 

 Gaiman is a witty and creative writer and I’ve enjoyed all of his books so far.  However,  Neverwhere is still my favourite.
