Coming soon - A Neverwhere read-along
Yesterday, Neil Gaiman posted the image of a new "author's preferred text" version of Neverwhere that will be released soon and that prompted me to ask (on Facebook) who has read the book. I haven't yet gotten around to reading Neverwhere and was thinking the new release serves as an excellent reminder that Neverwhere has been on my radar (and my shelf) for years, unread.
It turns out I'm far from alone, so I suggested a read-along (or is it "readalong" - one word?) and we settled on October. Although it will be an informal affair, I'll update as we get closer to the event and I'll register a hashtag, later (but I'm thinking "NeverAlong" or "NeverwhereRAL" -- probably the former). If you're interested in joining in, mark it down for October! Unless a magic fairy shows up on my doorstep, I'll be reading the original version. If you're an audio person, I've heard the audio read by Gaiman is excellent.

Gaiman and I do not always get along. However, this book was excellent. I hope you enjoy it!ReplyDelete
I'm the same way. Either I love a Gaiman book or it falls flat. I'm glad to know you enjoyed Neverwhere! I'll probably like it for the London setting alone. Thanks!Delete
