Clever play on words in so many ways but a weak storyline. If you like fantasy then read this. Not my favourite Neil Gaiman

I chose this book for my 'bookclub' because of Stardust, Ocean at the end of the lane, Coraline, even Wolves in the Wall. This story is clever and the characters are well drawn. Set in London 'underground', a world with occasional magic, a bit of sorcery and some things going on that are unexplained and left to your own interpretation. If you know London Underground Stations you will enjoy this even more. There are all manner of weird and wonderful persons. All in all I did want to know what will happen to 'Richard Mayhew' so I read the book in 2 days. If you like fantasy, then read this.
