 Amazing, and a recommended read!

Unlike other reviews, which mention that " this was written primarily as a script for the visual medium and only later adapted into a novel " (untrue by the way) - this reviewer can only say that this was the most amazing book I have ever read. Spend an afternoon delving into the delights of London Below courtesy of Door, The Angel Islington and the unforgettable Marquis de Carabas, and forget about the TV show - the mind creates far more interesting characters than the BBC ever could!

This is, hands down, the best book that I have ever read, a hark back to the days of childhood imaginings and fantasy. Brilliant!

 Best book I've read in ages

Amazing book, buy it and see for yourself. I will now be reading all of Gaiman's books, one after the other.

 A Tolkien-like adventure, but much funnier!

If you descend into London Below, nothing is what it seems and not at all as you know it in London Above. This book has a pageturner plot which makes you think a little of a Tolkien adventure, but the antihero is much funnier than Frodo! Absurd humour as I like it, and in the bottom a tale about a boy who prefers to not grow up.

 Beneath the streets of London...

This book might have been partly spoiled for me by the fact that I read it shortly after watching the TV series, so I was sometimes distracted by the differences in the two; I did however love that it had the chance to flesh out some characters a bit more, in particular Old Bailey. A wonderful novel and a delightful spin on names and locations from the 'real' London, but it shows somehow that this was written primarily as a script for the visual medium and only later adapted into a novel.

Every now and then you read a book that you never want to end and would like it to go on forever. This is one of them. It's a fantastic story full of interesting characters. Marvellous!
