I nominated this book in the first place because I have wanted to read it for a long time, just to see what all the fuss was about. I did enjoy it, despite some of the inconsistencies already mentioned by Hamlet53, but would categorise it as a light read, not too involving, and not something that would make me rush out to buy another Gaiman novel ( I have read Good Omens, his collaboration with Terry Pratchett which was good).

The London Below was the best aspect of the book, in my opinion, and for some reason I particularly enjoyed the London Underground scenes - I think I like the idea of abandoned and non-existent stations lurking down there somewhere. Quite easy to relate to when you are standing on an Underground platform alone at night...

To sum up, not a book I regret reading, as it was fun, but not one I will ever reread. If a sequel does turn up, I might just be tempted to give it a go, though.
