Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman, Benedict Cumberbatch

Notes:

 

- I remember almost nothing about this story. Which is great, because it's almost like experiencing it for the first time.

 

- I had completely forgotten how soon in the story Door and Richard managed to find the angel Islington. Now there's a character I remember. Oh yes.

 

- Drunken Door and Richard are fun.

 

- I hate to say this, but fight scenes are a little weird in this. In one instance, the sound effects were kind of goofy. In another, I was distracted by how easily a character was able to talk to another character while participating in a potentially deadly battle.
