Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman

This was a reread for me, and it didn't disappoint. I had initially read it years ago as a teenager, so although I remembered roughly what happened, it was a whole new experience. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what to say about it other than it's pretty awesome in a slightly creepy, slightly unsettling way. I just love the way Richard Mayhew falls through the cracks into London Below and the people he encounters there. Marquis de Carabas is the true hero of the story, of course, because he's such an awesome character.

 

I'm counting 215 pages of this book for square #29 for booklikes-opoly, The Monorail, since London definitely has a subway and its subway even features in the book (I rolled this square when I was 36% into the book). This gives me another $3 for my bank, bringing me up to $51. Now onto my next square!
