Neverwhere – by Neil Gaiman

Writing a brief review for a fiction book is pretty easy for me – either I liked it or I didn’t. I’m not much into deconstructing fiction and obviously there is no point in trying to evaluate fiction in the same way that I do non-fiction.

That said, this was an enjoyable book to read, and was rather quick reading because it was enjoyable. It is (and this is not to besmirch the book) typical fantasy fiction, wherein the writer has the freedom to create his own world. I could see where this book could easily translate into a movie. The door is even left wide open for sequels.

I enjoyed this more than the only other Neil Gaiman book that I have read up to this point (American Gods, which let me down in the end). I have another Gaiman book waiting to be read and this book has persuaded me that I should give it a try the next time I get an urge to read fiction.
