number 18

Book 18 was Neil Gaiman: Neverwhere (Author’s preferred text).

 

I’ve never warmed to discworld or anything like that, despite trying for 3 books for an ex boyfriend, so I was worried about it.  A knitter from Saturday group recommended it and I thought, well she’s lending it to me and she’s a knitter – trust her, like you would a pattern.

Well I am glad I did.  It was a plot that was rich in twists and turns executed brilliantly.  The language was fabulous and Gaiman effortlessly encompasses you into an alternate reality that you long to be real.

I’ve just put all his other books on my Amazon wish list because I fell under his spell.  All I can say is:

Read it.

  1. Thanks for the recommendation! I’ve never read any of his books, but I loved the film, Stardust, that was based on one of his books. Might give this a go!
