I first started reading this book and honestly wanted to just chuck it in the bin I said very mean things about the protagonist under my breathSurely I said a Protagonist means that they are pro and totally into furthering the story Surely Protagonist is the similar to Proactive and ProductiveI was wrong The word Protagonist in its basic form is not similar to proactive It simply from the Greek plays means the principle character or the first speaking characterHowever I maintain that the kind of protagonist that most people want to read about is one that actually bloody does somethingHistoryLanguage lesson overNeverwhere is a book that TRIES to be clever and magical In many senses it utterly manages to be magical and creative and fun It fails however to be clever There are so many lines in this book intending to be dry wit and just come off dry stupid Allow an example There are four simple ways for the observant to tell Mr Coup and Mr Vandemar apart first Mr Vandemar is two and a half heads taller than Mr Croup second Mr Croup has eyes of a faded china blue while Mr Vandemar s eyes are brown third while Mr Vandemar fashioned the rings he wears on his right hand out of the skulls of four ravens Mr Croup has no obvious jewellery fourth Mr Croup likes words while Mr Vandemar is always hungry Also they look nothing at all alike Oh I see what you did there Kat laughs slapping her knee with her hand in amusement No not really If he d left out these lame little lines I think I probably would have enjoyed this novel a whole lot Just about every other character in this story is awesome except for the protagonist Give me a story about Maruis de Carabas and I will read it in a second Honestly fantastic character right there Tell me I have to read another whiny missive about Richard Mayhew and I will likely stick hot pokers into my eyes firstI get it I really do It s a journey He has to LEARN and GROW and CHANGE But he takes a REALLY long time to do it and he only ever grows to be slightly less pansy soft and annoying The total character growth comes to eual someone who doesn t just sit idly by and let people take stuff from himLet me give you an example He met a girl who was unconscious in the streets and bleeding to death He takes her home This causes his fiancee to break up with him He then goes through a lengthy process to get the girl back where she came from Once he does this he then loses his job his apartment and all his money He then goes to find the girl for a an explanation and b help Without her help he will probably die as another side effect of having met her is that he has two psychopathic killers on his tail She simply apologizes and walks away abandoning him So what does he do Does he chase her down and gently remind her that she owes him a favor Does he barter and trade what he can whilst trying to lure the killers into a trap so that he can some how defend himself No I will now transcribe from the book EXACTLY what he does Richard leaned against a wall and listened to their footsteps echoing away and to the rush of the water running past on its way to the pumping station of East London and the sewage works Shit he said And then to his surprise for the first time since his father died alone in the dark Richard Mayhew began to cry He decides to stay there and die That s right folks He just stays there waiting to die Boo fucking hooYa know I don t accept this crap from a female character nor do I accept it from a man How the hell am I suppose to sympathize with someone who so blithely lets everything he has slip through his fingers because he can t speak up and demand explanations or some kind of help This level of pitiful doesn t help the audience empathize it makes them think your protagonist is an idiot The plot is pretty good despite everything being painfully obvious and predictable at the end The world building is fantastic It s probably the best thing about this book It s really creative and fascinating and interestingOver all it was an alright read It wasn t great I labored through until the last half where it began to pick up and markedly improve Thus only three stars Had the first half been like the last half then it would have earned four

Richard Mayhew had a perfectly ordinary life thank you very muchHe had a job that he didn t uite hate a fairly decent apartment and a lovely fiancee despite what his friends thought One night he and his fiance stumble upon a broken bleeding girl The strangest thing His fiance couldn t uite see the girl or like once she noticed the bleeding girl his fiance would just as uickly un notice herShrugging that off Richard takes the girl back to his apartment at her insistence and tends to her wounds She leaves in the company of a maruis for the Under London A few short days later much to his horror people start to react to Richard the same way Their glances slide off him they cannot hold conversations it s like he has disappeared When his landlord shows Richard s apartment to a prospective buyer with Richard still in there Richard knows that he has to go to the Under London as well Door the injured girl from before takes pity on Richard and allows him to join her crew though much to his dismay this new world is filled with sewer people terrifying women and the worst possible creatures and things I want to go home Then he mentally underlined the last sentence three times rewrote it in huge letters in red ink and circled it before putting a number of exclamation marks next to it in his mental margin I really enjoyed how much of a reluctant adventurer our main character is Finally a character who reacts the way I would on a uest That being said there were so many intriguing side characters that it s almost disappointing to follow the only normal human I would have loved to hear this story from the perspective of Door or the maruis Gaiman does a fantastic job of weaving in fantasy elements into his novel eual amounts of horror and delight I was absolutely fascinated How does he even come up with such ideas I mean maybe I am crazy I mean maybe But if this is all there is then I don t want to be sane Audiobook CommentsRead by the author which is always a plus especially when done by Neil Gaiman He always reads so well I swear this man could read anything and I d give it a listen The 2018 PopSugar Reading Challenge A book that is also a stage play or musical Aside Door s whole family has the special ability to open doors at any time anywhereand what does her dad name her Door Are you seriousYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading
