Explanation of the Book:

“Neil Gaiman is undoubtedly one of the modern masters of fantasy writing....For those who have not read Neverwhere, the new edition is the one to read, and is a fitting introduction to Gaiman’s adult fiction....American readers can experience this spellbinding, magical world the way that Neil Gaiman wanted us to all along.” —Huffington Post The #1 New York Times bestselling author’s ultimate edition of his wildly successful first novel featuring his “preferred text”—and including his special Neverwhere tale, “How the Marquis Got His Coat Back”. Published in 1997, Neil Gaiman’s darkly hypnotic first novel, Neverwhere, heralded the arrival of a major talent and became a touchstone of urban fantasy. It is the story of Richard Mayhew, a young London businessman with a good heart and an ordinary life, which is changed forever when he discovers a girl bleeding on the sidewalk. He stops to help her—an act of kindness that plunges him into a world he never dreamed existed. Slipping through the cracks of reality, Richard lands in Neverwhere—a London of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth. Neverwhere is home to Door, the mysterious girl Richard helped in the London Above. Here in Neverwhere, Door is a powerful noblewoman who has vowed to find the evil agent of her family’s slaughter and thwart the destruction of this strange underworld kingdom. If Richard is ever to return to his former life and home, he must join Lady Door’s quest to save her world—and may well die trying.

Explanation of the Book:

A idéia que deu origem a este romance é basicamente simples, como todas as idéias geniais. Gaiman representa Londres não como uma cidade mas como duas, a Londres-de-Cima e a Londres-de-Baixo. O protagonista, Richard Mayhew é um rapaz cândido que vem da província para trabalhar em Londres. Quando cruzar com Door, uma fugitiva que acolherá em sua casa, por humana compaixão, quebra o compromisso com a noiva Jessica. Desde então descobre que ninguém o vê - como se nunca tivesse existido. Resta-lhe acompanhar Door na descida para as profundezas da cidade subterrânea, o mundo da escuridão, dos túneis, dos esgotos, dos edifícios abandonados.

Explanation of the Book:

A beautifully illustrated edition of the thrilling, wintry Nordic tale by Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell, who together weave a truly magical story of legend and adventure that will grip and enchant readers from beginning to end. Odd, a young Viking boy, is left fatherless following a raid. In his icy, ancient world there is no mercy for an unlucky soul with a crushed foot and no one to protect him. Fleeing to the woods, Odd stumbles upon and releases a trapped bear…and then Odd's destiny begins to change. The eagle, bear, and fox Odd encounters are Norse gods, trapped in animal form by the evil frost giant who has conquered Asgard, the city of the gods. Now our hero must reclaim Thor's hammer, outwit the frost giants and release the gods… First published in 2009, Odd and the Frost Giants has been reimagined by acclaimed artist Chris Riddell in the style of his epic artwork from the New York Times bestselling The Sleeper and the Spindle.

Explanation of the Book:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Komparatistik, Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft, Note: 2,0, Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germanistisches Institut - Lehrstuhl für Komparatistik), Veranstaltung: Erfahrung und Imagination, Lewis Carrolls Alice-Romane – Alice revisited, 9 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Über Neil Gaimans Roman „Neverwhere“ liest man häufig Aussagen wie „[a] dark contemporary ‘Alice in Wonderland‘“ oder „Neverwhere is an eye-popping Alice in Wonderland [...]“. Allerdings beschränken sich alle diese Vergleiche nur darauf, dass gesagt wird, dass sich „Neverwhere“ und Lewis Carrolls Alice-Romane gleichen. In welchen Punkten sie sich gleichen oder auch unterscheiden wurde bisher an keiner Stelle erwähnt. In dieser Arbeit soll nun herausgefunden werden, ob sich die Romane überhaupt gleichen und wenn ja, in welchen Punkten. Hierzu wird zuerst der Charakter des Portagonisten Richard Mayhew mit dem von Alice verglichen, im zweiten Schritt wird das U-Bahnnetz mit dem Schachspiel aus „Through the Looking Glass“ verglichen - wobei allerdings auch das Kartenspiel aus „Alice‘s Adventures in Wonderland“ angesprochen wird - und im letzten Schritt wird die Welt London Below mit ihren Entsprechungen Wunderland und Spiegelland betrachtet.
