Read Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere

I bought it last year actually , but never got the chance to read in until two days ago.
I am not allowed to drive due to my condition, so i read.
And i love it alot! is such an adrenalin rush!...A bit of Harry Potter[ instead of train stations they had tubes], Inkheart[ so magical with weird creatures], Eragon [ mystical]..yada yada...

Alot of humour, you will be reading about something being killed and then you will laugh at how witty the characters are, even when they knew that they were about to die.
I like the part where they had a market in HARRODS!..

"Neverwhere is the story of Richard Mayhew and his adventures through London. At the start of the story, he is a young businessman, with a normal life. All this changes, however, when he stops to help a mysterious young girl who appears before him, bleeding and weakened, as he walks with his fiancée to dinner to meet her influential boss.
The morning after Richard rescued the girl, Door, from the streets, she is greatly recovered, and sends him to find the Marquis de Carabas, a man who will be able to help Door escape two infamous and seemingly inhuman assassins, the Messrs; Croup and Vandemar. Richard brings the Marquis back to his apartment to meet Door, only to see both of them vanish immediately. Soon after, Richard begins to realize the consequences of his actions. He appears to have become invisible; he loses his job, where no one seems to recognize him, and his apartment is rented out to other people."

But then when i Googled it..then only i realised that :-

"Neverwhere is an urban fantasy television series by Neil Gaiman that first aired in 1996 on BBC Two. The series is set in "London Below", a magical realm coexisting with the more familiar London, referred to as "London Above". It was devised by Neil Gaiman and Lenny Henry, and directed by Dewi Humphreys. Gaiman later adapted the series into book form."

p/s Highly recommended!!- by the way Neil Gaiman wrote STARDUST.
