Overview

Neverwhere Illustrated Edition by Neil Gaiman

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 dark classic of modern fantasy, beautifully illustrated for the first time by award-winning artist Chris Riddell, and featuring the author’s preferred text and his Neverwhere tale, “How the Marquis Got His Coat Back.”

Published in 1997, Neil Gaiman’s first novel, Neverwhere, heralded the arrival of a major talent. Over the years, various versions have been produced around the world. In 2016, this gorgeously illustrated edition of the novel was released in the UK. It is now available here, and features strikingly atmospheric, painstakingly detailed black-and-white line art by Chris Riddell, one of Gaiman’s favorite artistic interpreters of his work.

Richard Mayhew is a young London businessman with a good heart whose life is changed forever when he stops to help a bleeding girl—an act of kindness that plunges him into a world he never dreamed existed. Slipping through the cracks of reality, Richard lands in Neverwhere—a London of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth. Neverwhere is home to Door, the mysterious girl Richard helped in the London Above. Here in Neverwhere, Door is a powerful noblewoman who has vowed to find the evil agent of her family’s slaughter and thwart the destruction of this strange underworld kingdom. If Richard is ever to return to his former life and home, he must join Lady Door’s quest to save her world—and may well die trying.

A fun fast read. I primarly enjoy horror/suspense, king and the such but deciced to give gaiman a look after reading a few of b.n reviews, I really enjoyed his style. Was able to connect with his characters actually caring if they survived through to the next chapter. I've since read other gaiman novels and am now pretty much hooked, he mixes fantasy with great chatacters like few can, love this guy, recommend- recommend!

Yet another winning novel from the prolific imagination of the phenomenally talented Neil Gaiman, a true master of the art of storytellng in whatever medium he chooses to express himself. Well worth reading: the BBC's filmed adaptation is equally wothwhile.

Perhaps I am not used to this type of literature (about the "underworld") - wanted to stop reading it because of the peculiar story line, yet finished it after all. ODD story, peculiar writing style ....

Loved the ending.

I initially had to read the book because I lost a bet with my boyfriend. It was hard to get into as it is not a genre tht I normally read. But it was worth finishing. Defintely worth picking up.

Great book I couldn't put it down

I found myself getting lost in this book and being absorbed into its story. The characters are complex and real yet still magical. It's a new favorite book of mine. It's a book that feels as though the story is complete yet the world will never go. There's enough descrption to be in the world, be with the characters, and see through their eyes, but not so much that it feels tedious or forced. I highly recommend it for any fantasy reader.
