Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman

In case you didnt know it, there are two london's one above one below. And once you know london below you can never go back to london above. Another very nice gaiman novel , this time dealing with london the city, with events written around its places (some of which i can even identify) and with interesting characters like the marquis de carabas who deals in favors (puss in boots ,i knew it!). The villanous duo was particularly cool and i wouldve thought would have been perfect had this been a comic. Which is why i cant wait to buy carey's adaption of the novel.
The story is sort of been there , beautiful princess ,a quest , villains and a mystery and an unlikely hero . But what sets this book apart is the way London has been used.
