Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere by Mike Carey

Rating: **** (4 out of 5)

Review: Richard Mayhew is just your average person with an average job, who allows himself to be gently (and not so gently) pushed around by pretty much everyone and everything in his life. When he stops to help an injured young lady named Door, who comes from London Below, a sort of parallel city that exists beneath and connected to London, his life changes.

This is the graphic adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel. I admit, after reading this I wish I had read the original novel first. I loved the story, and the settings were beautifully depicted, but I was left feeling like something was missing, and the story could have benefited from a slower pace.

Still, this is a lovely book and I recommend it, specially if you’re read the original novel before.

  1. I’ll certainly read this one after the original novel, Neil Gaiman and then Mike Carey? I must like it.

    I’ve been a Gaiman fan for a long time, Neverwhere was the first book of his that I read. A graphic version sounds cool, but I’ve had my version of what Door and Richard and everyone else in my mind for so long, someone else’s version could be weird!
