Neverwhere: A Novel

Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman Richard Mayhew is an average man who follows Life's rules. He has a secure job in finance, he is engaged to the beautiful Jessica, and he is well on track to live out the boring life prescribed for him. All this changes when one evening he stops to help a bleeding woman on the London sidewalk. This act of kindness opens up the mysterious and magical world of London underground and Richard must step out of his comfort zone and go beyond ordinary and become heroic.I loved this book! It had the perfect combination of fairytale fantasy with Neil Gaiman's trademark witty, tongue-in-cheek humor. This is the perfect escape from reality book - fast paced, romantic, and funny. Neil Gaiman's narration, is perfect!
