Neverwhere
Neverwhere: Author's Preferred Text - Neil Gaiman

I enjoyed this after a bit. The first 30 to 40 percent I found slow. But the book picks up momentum and I liked how we get to see more of the London Below via other characters when we're not following the main characters of Richard and Door.

 

Richard Mayhew finds himself helping a young woman one night and it changes his life forever. Without realizing it, helping the woman named Door will cost Richard his life as he knows it when he finds himself pushed out of his reality. Being lost about what to do, Richard goes looking for Door and finds out about London Below.

 

I liked Richard though I found him to be a little slow on the uptake sometimes. But I think that Gaiman did a good job of having a readers see things through Richard's eyes.

 

This book is told in the third person, and we get to follow a number of characters around. We have the Lady Door, the Marquis, and a woman called Hunter who's the best hunter in London Below. When Door goes on a quest to figure out who killed her family and why these four characters end up going on a series of mini-quests.

 

I kind of like how Gaiman mixes history in this book along with some cultural significance to people who are from Britain.

 

The writing was good, but as I said above, the flow was off for me for a good portion of the book.

 

The setting was awesome and I found myself interested in finding out more about those who live in London Below.

 

The ending felt a bit anti-climatic to me. But all in all, this was a pretty good story.

Reading progress update: I've read 23%.
Neverwhere: Author's Preferred Text - Neil Gaiman

Trying to enjoy this, but honestly this is not grabbing me like most of Gaiman's books. So far there is too much unknown. I don't need things spelled out right away, but I am not even drawn to Richard, Door, or anyone else in this book at this point.

Great for the visual learner!
Text, Don't Call: An Illustrated Guide t... Text, Don't Call: An Illustrated Guide to the Introverted Life - INFJoe

You may have seen comics by Aaron Caycedo-Kimura (aka INFJoe) portraying the life of an introvert: avoiding crowds, dealing with people who don't understand introversion, how introverts recharge or find happiness, etc. It was great to see he had come out with a book and I was happy to pick this up.

 

If you're new to introversion or want to learn more about it AND you're a visual learner I'd say this is a great pick. Interspersed with text and comics, INFJoe talks about what introversion is, what introverts do, and so on and so forth. If you're already familiar with the comics you might be disappointed since you've probably seen most of these online. But if you're looking for a guide or a short explainer for someone this might make a pretty good gift.

 

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I bought this but I was happy to support a fellow introvert. There's not much more to say about this book since it's just a bunch of comics with a little text. It's somewhat similar to 'Introvert Doodles: An Illustrated Look at Introvert Life in an Extrovert World' by Maureen "Marzi" Wilson which I felt was more about introverts and introverted life in general. 

 

I'd say if I had a criticism of it I suppose I was a bit disappointed by seeing so many of the same comics I've seen online and that I wish it were longer.

 

But if you know someone who wants to learn more about introverts and introversion as a topic and is a visual learner/like graphic novels this could be a great introduction. There's no plot like a GN, but if someone is not inclined to read a more text-heavy book (like Susan Cain's 'Quiet' for example) then this could be a great alternative. I bought this and was a bit disappointed because it's a bit pricey (I guess for the art and quality of the book itself) but it's not at my library and again I was happy to support the author.

First Book Read for Halloween Bingo 2017
Neverwhere: Author's Preferred Text - Neil Gaiman

For my first read I choose the book NeverWhere by Neil Gaiman, as I mentioned before. And I really enjoyed the book even though it was a very strange and confusing book. I really thought the main character of Richard was pretty strange and I liked him well enough, but the character of Door was my favorite between the two. The most interesting character by far and the one that really kept my interest, was the character of Marquis de Carabas. With him I was never sure if he was a good guy, bad guy, or just looking out for himself. So I would have to say he was definitely the character that kept me wondering what he would do next, whenever he was on the pages. 

I really still have something's that confused me about the story but it didn't stop me from giving the book 4 out of 5 stars. The part that made me give the book 4 stars, was I just don't care for the ending at all. I probably would have only given the book 3 stars but I really loved the characters and the storyline. The book was creepy with some stuff that people would eat in the book and some of the individuals were really creepy and scary as well. Especially the characters of Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemar. 

I am so glad I read this book and choose it as my first read for the Halloween bingo for 2017.
