Under the streets of London there’s a place most people could never even dream of. A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, knights in armour and pale girls in black velvet. This is the city of the people who have fallen between the cracks.
Richard Mayhew, a young businessman, is going to find out more than enough about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his workday existence and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and utterly bizarre. And a strange destiny awaits him down here, beneath his native city: Neverwhere.
I found this book enchanting.
Even though I loved it all, the MC was my favorite. Richard’s this regular guy shoved into a world he does not understand, forced to survive horrific obstacles and prove to himself what he’s capable of. I was so sad when this book ended because it meant I couldn’t follow him anymore…good thing with books it is never truly farewell.
The setting was captivating. Ordinary things were made poignant and engrossing; it is so different, no wonder poor Richard became overwhelmed!
Since finishing it, I’m holding other MCs to a pretty high standard. Do try this book–you’ll find yourself engrossed, too!
