Neverwhere: London’s Alternate Reality

November 26, 2008 // Filed under Uncategorized

Saturday Samplers, one of Bernardsville Public Library’s book discussion groups, is now reading Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere for its next meeting on Saturday, December 6th, at 3:30 p.m. in the library. This urban fantasy takes place in “London Below” where the city’s noted underground stations comprise part of Gaiman’s alternate universe. Memorable, original characters inhabit this dark and menacing setting in which an everday Everyman from “London Above” suddenly finds himself. Forced by situations out of his control, this “normal” main character must undergo a quest of mythological proportions in order to save not only the damsel in distress, but ever so much more. This is an exciting, imaginative book which nicely balances darkness and light, good and evil. Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk.
