NEW [Neverwhere]

NeverwhereOkay so people have been telling me to read Neil Gaiman or ages They assume I ve read American Gods because the premise is similar to the Percy Jackson series Well I still haven t read American Gods but I did pick up Neverwhere in the Heathrow airport and read it on the way back home I enjoyed it a lot Great antasy wonderful sense of humor I can understand why Gaiman is so popular I ll have to look up his other books Richard Mayhew had a perfectly ordinary life thank you very muchHe had a job that he didn t uite hate a Samantha Spinner and the Super Secret Plans fairly decent apartment and a lovelyiancee despite what his Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda friends thought One night he and hisiance stumble upon a broken bleeding girl The strangest thing His iance couldn t Uite See The Girl Or Like Once see the girl or like once noticed the bleeding girl his iance would just as uickly un notice herShrugging that off Richard takes the girl back to his apartment at her insistence and tends to her wounds She leaves in the company of a maruis Infestation for the Under London Aew short days later much to his horror people start to react to Richard the same way Their glances slide off him they cannot hold conversations it s like he has disappeared When his landlord shows Richard s apartment to a prospective buyer with Richard still in there Richard knows that he has to go to the Under London as well Door the injured girl If My Love Were a Fire Truck: A Daddy's Love Song from before takes pity on Richard and allows him to join her crew though much to his dismay this new world isilled with sewer people terrifying women and the worst possible creatures and things I want to go home Then he mentally underlined the last sentence three times rewrote it in huge letters in red ink and circled it before putting a number of exclamation marks next to it in his mental margin I really enjoyed how much of a reluctant adventurer our main character is Finally a character who reacts the way I would on a uest That being said there were so many intriguing side characters that it s almost disappointing to Write It When I'm Gone: Remarkable Off-The-Record Conversations with Gerald R. Ford follow the only normal human I would have loved to hear this storyrom the perspective of Door or the maruis Gaiman does a Ready for Summer fantastic job of weaving inantasy elements into his novel eual amounts of horror and delight I was absolutely Cyberselfish A Critical Romp Through The Terribly Libertarian Culture Of High Tech fascinated How does he even come up with such ideas I mean maybe I am crazy I mean maybe But if this is all there is then I don t want to be sane Audiobook CommentsRead by the author which is always a plus especially when done by Neil Gaiman He always reads so well I swear this man could read anything and I d give it a listen The 2018 PopSugar Reading Challenge A book that is also a stage play or musical Aside Door s wholeamily has the special ability to open doors at any time anywhereand what does her dad name her Door Are you seriousYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading NeverwhereUpon beginning a review of Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman my irst thoughts were to write that even a bad Gaiman novel was better than most other authors best work But this is unfair Neverwhere is not a bad novel at all Compared to Stardust *Or Anansi Boys Or Especially *Anansi Boys or especially masterpiece American Gods it lacks the epic presence and may even be categorized as one of Gaiman s lesser works What is present though is Gaiman s phenomenal writing his brilliant and original imagination and his ability to simply tell a good story This was entertaining and the A 80% Very Good Notes Wherein the hero twice and villain share the same desire view spoilerdeliverance rom exile to a world they long to return to hide spoiler Neverwhere was my Write Your Novel!: Tips from a Bestseller first real introduction to the world of urbanantasy a clever take on Alice in Wonderland one can say set in the semi magical unsubtly dangerous and uite Dogs Behaving Badly fantastically warped world of London Below Young man he said understand this there are two Londons There s London Above that s where you lived and then there s London Below the Underside inhabited by the people whoell through the cracks in the world Now you re one of them Good night Neverwhere is one of my all time First Year Teacher: Wit and Wisdom from Teachers Who'€ve Been There favorite books It has just the right amount of wild imagination inexplicably somehow still grounded inirm reality a healthy dose of absurdity and strangeness remarkably colorful larger than life characters unforgettable setting that is of a character than a simple backdrop and of course sufficient amount of lovely dry humor Besides there is that certain something in There are two Londons There s London above and then there s London belowThis book was recommended to me by genial Goodreads Revenge of the Land: A Century of Greed, Tragedy, and Murder on a Saskatchewan Farm friend Matthew uann whose effusive review sealed the dealI was initially reticent Having read Gaiman s The Ocean at the End of the Lane Ielt that his writing was a bit young April 16th: Virginia Tech Remembers for my own personal taste and decided that though delightful his books weren tor this beyond middle aged sourpussDespite my misgivings I dived in and was immediate I didn t enjoy this book as much as I should have I kept distracting myself with the thought Why the hell haven t I read of Neil Gaiman s books Then I would have to tell myself to shut up because I m reading one right now and I can return to berating myself laterNeil Gaiman really understands Under the streets of London there's a place most people could never even dream of A city of monsters and saints murderers and angels knights in armour and pale girls in black velvet Th. Tterly manages to be magical and creative and un It ails however to be clever There are so many lines in this book intending to be dry wit and just come off dry stupid Allow an example There are Mindful Living with Aspergers Syndrome four simple waysor the observant to tell Mr Coup and Mr Vandemar apart irst Mr Vandemar is two and a half heads taller than Mr Croup second Mr Croup has eyes of a aded china blue while Mr Vandemar s eyes are brown third while Mr Vandemar The Habitat Guide to Birding fashioned the rings he wears on his right hand out of the skulls ofour ravens Mr Croup has no obvious jewellery Space Kid fourth Mr Croup likes words while Mr Vandemar is always hungry Also they look nothing at all alike Oh I see what you did there Kat laughs slapping her knee with her hand in amusement No not really If he d left out these lame little lines I think I probably would have enjoyed this novel a whole lot Just about every other character in this story is awesome exceptor the protagonist Give me a story about Maruis de Carabas and I will read it in a second Honestly Circumstantial Evidence: Death, Life, and Justice in a Southern Town fantastic character right there Tell me I have to read another whiny missive about Richard Mayhew and I will likely stick hot pokers into my eyesirstI get it I really do It s a journey He has to LEARN and GROW and CHANGE But he takes a REALLY long time to do it and he only ever grows to be slightly less pansy soft and annoying The total character growth comes to eual someone who doesn t just sit idly by and let people take stuff rom himLet me give you an example He met a girl who was unconscious in the streets and bleeding to death He takes her home This causes his iancee to break up with him He then goes through a lengthy process to get the girl back where she came Every Drop for Sale: Our Desperate Battle Over Water from Once he does this he then loses his job his apartment and all his money He then goes toind the girl Down We Go: Living Into the Wild Ways of Jesus for a an explanation and b help Without her help he will probably die as another side effect of having met her is that he has two psychopathic killers on his tail She simply apologizes and walks away abandoning him So what does he do Does he chase her down and gently remind her that she owes him aavor Does he barter and trade what he can whilst trying to lure the killers into a trap so that he can some how defend himself No I will now transcribe Reach for the Rainbow: Advanced Healing for Survivors of Sexual Abuse from the book EXACTLY what he does Richard leaned against a wall and listened to theirootsteps echoing away and to the rush of the water running past on its way to the pumping station of East London and the sewage works Shit he said And then to his surprise Troubled Waters for theirst time since his The Allergy-Fighting Garden: Stop Asthma and Allergies with Smart Landscaping father died alone in the dark Richard Mayhew began to cry He decides to stay there and die That s rightolks He just stays there waiting to die Boo ucking hooYa know I don t accept this crap rom a emale character nor do I accept it rom a man How the HELL AM I SUPPOSE TO SYMPATHIZE am I suppose to sympathize someone who so blithely lets everything he has slip through his ingers because he can t speak up and demand explanations or some kind of help This level of pitiful doesn t help the audience empathize it makes them think your protagonist is an idiot The plot is pretty good despite everything Being Painfully Obvious And painfully obvious and at the end The world building is Owls: Birds of the Night fantastic It s probably the best thing about this book It s really creative andascinating and interestingOver all it was an alright read It wasn t great I labored through until the last half where it began to pick up and markedly improve Thus only three stars Had the Bon Bon Voyage (A Carolyn Blue Culinary Mystery, first half been like the last half then it would have earnedour this Bon Bon Voyage full review is now POSTED on my blog what better time to pretend there s a magical other world beneath ours than
