Review: Neverwhere


Neverwhere
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Well, I enjoyed this one. It wasn’t spectacular. It wasn’t bad. In places it was pretty interesting, but overall I found Richard Mayhew to be too whiny for far too long, and then there was nothing unexpected about the ending.

That said, I’d love to teach this book in class, having students write about the stages of The Hero’s Journey.

It’s a good story. I didn’t like it as much as, say, American Gods or The Graveyard Book, but it held my interest and brought me back to the end.
