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.

Lacks Narration. Finding it difficult to understand what is happening.

I know this book is good and one of the most known from Galman’s best works but this radio drama is so difficult to understand what is happening. I listened Sandman for hours and its great as it had narration. This one seems to be audio extracted for a movie and very difficult to keep up and understand what is going on. I had to listen again and again just to understand what just happened, and with the actors and their voice seems so stupid as they come from audible without any explanations. Why would anyone spend any more time listening?

The immaculate Performance

The story was quirky and gripping. But the dramatization and the performance was really outstanding.

Some things are missing...

As I already knew, the story was delightful. Though some parts went missing in this iteration. "Do you ever wonder if this is all there is?.. Life, is that all there is?" They skipped this whole life altering sequence and went straight for the ending.. There were other scenes that were skipped as well.. Oh well.. Its still worth a listen...

Neverwhere is a masterpiece.

The story, the cast ... James McAvoy, Bernard Gribbins, Benedict Cumberbatch, Natalie Dormer, with Neil Gaiman and Dirk Maggs binding it all together to create a spellbinding experience. A must listen and a must have!

A good book

I liked it. The story was okay. The dramatisation, short runtime and cast made it interesting for me.

Enjoyable dramatisation

Really loved this dramatised version by audible. Nice little story by the exceptional Neil Gaiman and what a cast they have used. Mind blown by the performances. I am looking forward to more of Gaiman's work dramatised and other. In awe of his writing really.
4.5 stars for the audible experience.

5 Stars, no less. No less!!

There can't be a better story to this plot, no better cast, no better twist and the climax...it is a complete surprise, but then that's a normal for Sir, Neil Gaiman's work.
