Under the streets of London there's a world most people could never even dream of. A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and pale girls in black velvet. Richard Mayhew is a young businessman who is about to find out more than he ...
bargained for about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his safe and predictable life and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and yet utterly bizarre. There's a girl named Door, an Angel called Islington, an Earl who holds Court on the carriage of a Tube train, a Beast in a labyrinth, and dangers and delights beyond imagining ...And Richard, who only wants to go home, is to find a strange destiny waiting for him below the streets of his native city.

Gaiman è davvero un abile narratore, niente da dire. Bella storia, simpatica e divertente, scorrevole. La trama è piuttosto lineare, ma il libro acquista carattere per le ambientazioni interessanti e i personaggi bizzarri. Una menzione particolare
..." alla coppia di assassini, due villain di eccezione, impossibili da dimenticare. Consigliato a chi ama le favole urbane dalle tinte cupe e realistiche, sconsigliato a chi non ama le storie leggere.Continua...Nascondi
Watched the TV series, read the book and the graphic novel, now I listened to the audiobook. Is there any other way to enjoy this masterpiece? Because I'm ready to explore it. Outstanding cast of voice actors for this amazing experience.
Non ci sono altre parole per descrivere questo capolavoro di Neil Gaiman. Neverwhere è più che un semplice libro, è un Viaggio in una Londra sconosciuta ai più. E ad ogni pagina ti viene voglia di perderti nel Mondo nascosto sotto terra, tra le
..." varie stazioni dell'Underground londinese. Vuoi viaggiare con il Marchese di Carabas, darti alla caccia alla Bestia di Londra con Haunter o semplicemente conoscere tutti i personaggi che fanno parte di questo mondo fantastico. Alcune note sul linguaggio. Va ammesso che il linguaggio usato nel libro (mi riferisco alla versione in lingua originale) sia di immediata comprensione. Tuttavia, nonostante la difficoltà, vale la pena leggerlo in lingua originale, anche solo per non perdersi tutte quelle sfumature che permettono di definire meglio determinati personaggi e che vengono inevitabilmente persi nella traduzione.

The abbot had known that this day would bring pilgrims. The knowledge was a part of his dreams; it surrounded him, like the darkness. So the day became one of waiting, which was, he knew, a sin: moments were to be experienced; waiting was a sin
... against both the time that was still to come and the moments one was currently disregarding.Continua...Nascondi
Hunter brushed Richard's shoulder with her fingers. "Remember what I told you about the sheperds of Sheperd's Bush?""You said I didn't want to meet them, and there were some things I was probably better off not knowing.""Good," she said. "So now

"I am called Hunter," said Hunter to the jester.The courtiers were silent then. The jester opened his mouth, as if he were going to say something, and then he looked at her, and he closed his mouth again. A hint of a smile played at the corner of
