My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Gaiman is a master at creating kingdoms. This is the third of his books I have read and each has a different setting which starts out being something we are familiar with and turns out to be a world within a world.
Inadequate Richard sees a girl named Door beaten and bleeding whose eyes plea for him to help her. When he responds the only way he thinks a human being ought to, he catapults himself into the world of Under London. Nothing is normal and what is worse, he can't get back into his world. He doesn't exist. The underworld though has plenty enough to keep him occupied. There are ratspeakers, an angel, a floating market, and a myriad of other creatures. As he goes on this journey with Door, be becomes a new person.
This is a great fantasy and hopefully there will be more in this setting.
