    Default Neverwhere-Neil Gaiman

    whose read this? I am right now and I love it, I know I'll be sad when I finish, so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of what to read next, that will make me the least bit sad that I've finished the book.

    read Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett next, that'll open up the category of Pratchett books pretty well as well

    or you could read one of his collections of short stories... or do like I did and read American Gods next!

    I actually liked the book Neverwhere better than I liked the movie- it's a good book to imagine, not as good to view

    American Gods was good. Something along a similar vein that I really enjoyed, possibly a bit more, was The Holy by Daniel Quinn.

    American Gods or Anansi Boys. This is assuming you have read his Sandman series. If you haven't, drop everything and pick them up.

    I've read Anansi Boys, American Gods, Neverwhere, and Smoke and Mirrors (short stories collection). American Gods was my favorite, by far, so you could read that next. Smoke and Mirrors is quite excellent as well. His short stories have this really great mystical undertone to them, and they leave you feeling like life is inherently mysterious.

    FYI, if you're going to read Amerian Gods and Anansi Boys, read American Gods first. It provides some useful background for an important character in Anansi Boys.

    I'll probably read all of them at some point, but of course I have a reading list as long as my arm and leg combined. Oh school.....I swear I'd read more often if I didn't have so much bullshit to read for school, but I'm on spring break so I figured I can get through a book I want to read in 2-5 days average I'm gonna be done with Neverwhere tonight or tommorow morning more then likely.

    If I didn't do other things I'd get it done in 3-5 hours but of course I have a hard time just sitting and doing one thing.

    Yes yes.

    Good omens, then american gods, then anansi boys.

    it'll balance well with the humour and story.

    I decided to re-read the third harry potter book since i'd have to get off my ass to go buy those books, and I'm lazy but I will read them probably order them online.
