Richard Mayhew is a young man with a good heart and an ordinary life, which is changed forever when he stops to help a girl he finds bleeding on a London sidewalk. His small act of kindness propels him into a world he never dreamed existed. There are people who fall through the cracks, and Richard has become one of them. He must learn to survive in this city of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels, if he is ever to return to the London that he knew.

“A fantastic story that is both the stuff of dreams and nightmares” (San Diego Union-Tribune), Neil Gaiman’s first solo novel has become a touchstone of urban fantasy and a perennial favorite of readers everywhere.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ashley | 5/22/2011

    " Such an inventive story based in the London Underground. Gaiman's characters are truly unique. The story is quite dark and at times truly horrific yet Gaiman has a way of keeping you turning pages. Definitely worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lilly | 5/21/2011

    " I'm going to give this book five starts before I back out. This book was awesome- I loved the cocept of London Above and London Below. The characters were pretty engaging, also. I have got to read more of Neil Gaiman's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Dan | 5/18/2011

    " Easy read. I finished during jury duty. Semi-satirical look at homeless through the looking glass of parralel realities. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Lindsay | 5/18/2011

    " Starts out in an attention-grabbing, albeit disjointed way, and has some odd twists and turns, but it really picks up about halfway through. And the world created is imaginative and entertaining. "
