Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman


Richard is living a mundane, average life until he does a good deed.  The good deed lands him in a place that stretches and then shatters his imagination.  Richard ends up in an unlikely adventure under London.

Apparently this is a reprint with changes by the author of an older book.  Gaiman states that this is the book as he originally planned it.   The book clearly showcases the limitless imagination of a very popular author. 

The underground is a distorted reflection of the ills of society.  Richard faces those ills, grows to be a different person and suddenly finds himself home.  

The cast of characters is broad with the Marquis as one of my favorites.  The book has a short story at the end featuring the Marquis that I really enjoyed.

Gaiman writes an interesting and frequently strange book and yet it is captivating.   There aren’t car chases and explosions.  It is a more thoughtful book. 

I enjoyed it.

I recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
