Publisher's Summary

Beneath the streets of London there is another London. A subterranean labyrinth of sewers and abandoned tube stations. A somewhere that is Neverwhere.... An act of kindness sees Richard Mayhew catapulted from his ordinary life into the strange world of London Below. There he meets the Earl of Earl's Court, faces a life-threatening ordeal at the hands of the Black Friars, comes face to face with the Great Beast of London, and encounters an Angel. Called Islington. Accompanied by the mysterious Door and her companions, the Marquis de Carabas and the bodyguard Hunter, Richard embarks on an extraordinary quest to escape from the fiendish assassins Croup and Vandemar and to discover who ordered them to murder her family - all the while trying to get back to his old life in London Above. Adapted for radio by the award-winning Dirk Maggs, this captivating dramatisation features a stellar cast including David Harewood, Sophie Okonedo, Benedict Cumberbatch, Christopher Lee, Anthony Head and David Schofield. Contains over 25 minutes of additional unbroadcast material, including extended scenes, bloopers and outtakes.

Amazing cast.

I was a fan of the book and the show so it's no surprise I loved the audio version with such an exceptional cast of voice actors.

Highly recommended.

Fabulous

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a brilliant audio production. So many great voices in the cast. Go check the names and listen. (The first couple of minutes plunge you right into the adventure. Be patient. It'll all become clear.)

Fantastic show! highly recommended

I absolutely adored it! the beautifully recognizable voices from some of the greatest actors from the UK were stunning and very well presented. A simple storyline but enthusiastically performed made it consistantly engaging.

Creative Masterpiece

I am a huge fan of Neil Gaiman and Neverwhere does not disappoint. His imagination is well supported by the superb cast of narrators. I hope this saga will continue. This style of storytelling stimulates the mind like an illicit drug & I am graving more.

Short, sharp and intriguing

Polished performance by a high-powered cast of a dark, creative urban fantasy which delights in turning your everyday understanding of modern London on its head. Chapter 7 is the out-takes - if this isn't your thing, skip through to the last couple of minutes as the last out-take and the final piece of music are worthwhile.

Superb....thoroughly recommended.

Listen to this one frequently, can't fault it. Excellent performances, story moves along at pace. Even after repeat listens there's always something new. Glad it's not on tape as it would have worn out by now. Recommended.

I might like it more if I knew the story.

The actors were really good and I think this would be a great accompaniment to someone who was familiar with the story, characters and location. Which I wasn't and didn't get from this.

A fun listen!

A really great listen, the voice acting is stellar and the story good too! Definitely worth your time to give it a listen! Natalie Dormer and James McAviy are amazing.
