Professional reviews

"NEVERWHERE is the novelization of a BBC television series of the same name, also written by Neil Gaiman and originally aired in 1996. The story is an urban fantasy set in London--and in London Below, where an entire society exists, unnoticed by the people at ground level. An ordinary fellow named Richard Mayhew helps a girl who crosses his path one day, and his life takes a magical and dangerous turn. One certainly gets the sense that Gaiman enjoys narration, a quality that makes all of his audiobooks enjoyable listening. A highlight in this one is his performance of the villains Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemar--both deliciously diabolical. S.D.D. 2008 Audies Finalist (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
