Recommendation: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Under the streets of London there's a world most people could never even dream of. A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and pale girls in black velvet. Richard Mayhew is a young businessman who is about to find out more than he bargained for about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his safe and predictable life and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and yet utterly bizarre. There's a girl named Door, an Angel called Islington, and Earl who holds Court on the carriage of a Tube train, a Beast in a labyrinth, and dangers and delights beyond imagining ... and Richard, who only wants to go home, is to find a strange destiny waiting for him below the streets of his native city.

What I have to say: This book is sorta like a modern day Alice in Wonderland. It has twists and turns, fantasy and charm, adventure and the things nightmares are made of. All the things that make a good story!
Neil Gaiman is becoming one of my favorite authors and I have another one of his books on my list to read!!

This was originally a TV series made for the BBC and this particular publication is the Authors Preferred text as it's been rewritten a couple of times.
