Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Neverwhere


My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Everytime i read Neil's book it feels like travelling through magic land .Neverwhere is about a man named Richard Mayhew who fell into London Below .It all starts with saving a bleeding girl with dirty clothes and face in a sidewalk .Her name was Door (liked it much :) sounds so nice and plain ) .Want to indicate that wasn't children's book ,he may have written it for movie cuz it was more likely watching a film than just reading . Though didn't enjoy as much as previous two (Coraline, The Graveyard book ) , couldn't put it down during last 3 days .
One more thing i liked much was the way they traded, a big FAVOR's the highest cost , people in Underside never forget others' help ,always fulfilling debts .

I'm a believer like him ^^ , believe in magic ,mysterious things happen without being noticed to us, second world exists quietly around here etc

highlighted parts:

- "Mister Time is not our friend "

-" There is London Above -that's where you lived-and there's London Below -The Underside -inhabited by the people who fell through the cracks in the world . Now you're one of them . "

-" A child, a bravo , a fool . May they get each get what they deserve
<Which one am I?> whispered Richard 
<The fool ,of course > "
-"But there could be a way that we can learn , a key to all our problems "

-" In my London ....well , the most dangerous thing you ever have to watch out for is a taxi in a bit of a hurry . I like you ,too. I like you an awfully lot. But i have to go home "

P.S that was the first ever book i read on my Kindle :D
