On his way to dinner with his fiance, Richard Mayhew sees a wounded girl on the sidewalk, and his efforts to help her will end the life he knows. The next morning he is a cipher, erased from existence and consigned to a subterranean world of danger and shadows. One of the most acclaimed fantasy novels in recent years, Neverwhere was originally a six-part BBC television series. Rarely seen since its initial broadcast, this visionary tale was the first story written directly for the screen by Neil Gaiman, the prolific genius behind DC Comics' The Sandman series and the best-selling novel American Gods.

A real gem. I read the book and then saw the movie. Actually the movie came first. This is a story set in London beneath London, where you find people who literally "fell through the cracks". The protagonist falls into that world, and soon is swept into the quest for The Angel Islington, in the company of Door --- a girl who can open any door anywhere. It's Hero's Journey --- in the Jospeh Campbell sense. They have to endure the perils of the KnightsBridge, visit the Earl's Court, and the greatest trial of the Black Friars (as opposed to Caucasian Friars). Above all, they have to "mind the gap.".

A unique and highly imaginative work. An alternative world co-existing with the familiar London Underground, dangerous and confusing. Dangerous enemies and some surprises about who is or is not trustworthy. The initial blandness of the main character is exactly right for the adventures he gets drawn into.

Might be just baffling to someone who's not familiar with the London Underground, puns on which are the main theme.
