The #1 New York Times bestselling author’s ultimate edition of his wildly successful first novel featuring his “preferred text”—and including the special “Neverwhere” tale “How the Marquis Got His Coat Back.”

Published in 1997, Neil Gaiman’s darkly hypnotic first novel, Neverwhere, heralded the arrival of this major talent and became a touchstone of urban fantasy. Over the years, a number of versions were produced both in the U.S. and the U.K. Now, this author’s preferred edition of his classic novel reconciles these versions and reinstates a number of scenes cut from the original published books.

Neverwhere is the story of Richard Mayhew, a young London businessman with a good heart and an ordinary life, which is changed forever when he is plunged through the cracks of reality into a world of shadows and darkness—the Neverwhere. If he is ever to return to the London Above, Richard must join the battle to save this strange underworld kingdom from the malevolence that means to destroy it.

Neil Gaiman is the #1New York Timesbestselling author of more than twenty books, and is the recipient of numerous literary honors. Originally from England, he now lives in America.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nevermore Could never really get into this book. Although it did help me get to sleep several nights. We read as park of a fantasy bookclub and no one loved it. Just OK. Not one of Gaiman's better works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED it!! This was a great story, nice pace, easy to read and enjoyable. I'm sorry the story ended because I'd really like to know more about Richard, Door, Old Bailey and, of course, the Marquis. Neil Gaiman is a great Author :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Little ride away Imaginative and creative. Story takes you on an enticing adventure. Would rate it 3.5 as I would have liked to have seen more connection in the relationships. But I did enjoy the ride!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neverwhere Excellent story, just the kind I was hoping it would be. The world so often glimpsed out of the corner of your eye, when you're not looking for it. Well done Mr. Gaiman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit lovely A bit gruesome, a tad dark, a smidge odd, and totally enthralling. As if waking the streets of Lindon, and seeing odd names long forgotten for their origins sparked a world that just might already exist.
