I have just finished Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman today. I’ve had it on my shelf for awhile now, and read it as a prompt for a twitter readathon that I’m partaking in for the month of December. It’s the 3rd book by him that I’ve read (I’m a new fan of his), it wasn’t my favourite.
This particular edition also included the original prologue that was cut from the story, as well as a short story about one of the characters, the Marquis de Carabas.
I found the book a bit hard to get into in the beginning. And at times I found I would lose my focus with it, and so reading it probably took me a bit longer because of this.
However, I did enjoy the characters, and the story itself was interesting. It’s definitely not my favourite book of 2019 (that’s still The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon), but it was a good enough read. If I had to rate it I would give it a high 3.5 stars to a low 4 stars.
That being said, if you’re looking for a short read about what happens to people who fall between the cracks, this is a good one ☺ I would hate to make up someone else’s mind for them, and caution you to read the books I review for yourself and judge them to your tastes. This blog is just my humble opinion.
