I blog about my upcoming releases, all sorts of other books, and other bits of fluff from my mind. I also have a passion for wildlife and the environment. Every now and then I also share poems and stories.

Neverwhere is Amazing!

Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman

’ve been wanting to read something by Neil Gaiman for a long time but never got round to it.

I decided to start with Neverwhere and was not disappointed.

I think I’ve found a new favourite author. It was the right mixture of compelling, exciting and graphic.

Neil very cleverly takes the well known London above and warps it into something dark and intriguing.

I don’t think there was a character or chapter that wasn’t compelling, gripping, and terrifyingly real.

As a result I’m going to keep this review short or it could end up being very long and gushing.

Suffice it to say you’ll never look at London the same way again, or any city for that matter, for who knows what lurks beneath?
