Neverwhere – Neil Gaiman

When Richard Mayhew helps a stranger on the street, little does he know that this act of kindness will change his life forever and introduce him to the hidden parallel world of London Below, where there is an Angel called Islington and Black Friars living at Blackfriars.

This is the first novel I’ve read by Neil Gaiman and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s funny, original, exciting and it has fantastic characters. Richard is very likeable, but I particularly liked Mr Croup and Mr Vandemar as the baddies. I’ll definitely be reading more by Neil Gaiman in the future.
