Review of Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Neverwhere is a Neil Gaiman novel, so it has all the Gaimanisms you’d expect: clever story, amusing turns of phrase, fantasy settings mixed into the mundane of everyday life. What’s lacking are main characters whom you care about: Both Richard and Door left me cold. However, the side characters: Hunter, The Marquis de Carabas, Croup and Vandemar, would all be impressive stories on their own. I’d love to read a Croup and Vandemar series! Speaking of which (spoiler ahead) Croup and Vandemar deserved a better ending.
