Review: Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman
Summary: Richard Mayhew is an average everyday guy who (after helping an injured girl) just happens to get thrown into the world of "London Below," a world hidden from normal humans and society. He discovers the magic and danger of this secret world as he travels through this adventure with some rather interesting characters.
Review: Love love love Neil Gaiman, and this is my favorite of all his books. I guess its classified as YA, but very much straddles the line of being too mature for teenagers. This books has fantastic characters that you can see and hear in your head as if they really existed (or do they!?) The plot and conflict is in perfect proportion to length of the book which makes it one of those books you end up staying up late to finish. A little bit of love, a lot of action, some great witty humor, and just enough drama to suck you in. If you like fantastical fiction, there's no way you can pass this book up.
