    A great review of a great book! Well done!

    I must confess, I also love this book for another quite obscure reason. The first time Neverwhere was published, when Neil Gaiman was a new young author starting out, he wasn’t happy with the end result i.e. the edited version the publishers produced. So he then had a later ‘Author preferred’ text done. This simple act gives hope to all us indie authors, that if our cherished work is not produced to the standards we expect, we can take control and do it again ourselves! 😀

      That’s really interesting, thanks Sophie. I remember Dean Koontz (who had 500+ rejections before his first published novel) said that one of his books had seven sentences that he’d written. I’m sure that’s not the case now… We should have more control – they’re our books and they represent us.
