Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
A story about London – not the London you know, but the London Below, the metropolis unseen by the majority but no less real. Inhabited by the overlooked, lost, and forgotten. It’s a world into which Richard Mayhew, a Scottish expatriate living in the Big Smoke, is drawn when he assists Door, a young lady fleeing ruthless assassins who have murdered her entire family. Gaiman’s urban fantasy reimagines London as a unique realm of mythology, one that will have you wondering what’s actually going on, a half-glance out of sight the next time you’re out and about in the city. Gaiman reads the audiobook, while a full-cast audio drama takes listeners on a more immersive tour through London Below.
