A post modern fairy tale in which fate pulls Richard (something of a Bilbo Baggins) down into a fictional city beneath London. Initially the book is about Richard trying to get home, but he makes friends and falls in over his head in some other business. It combines the old fell down the rabbit hole I’m not in kansas anymore am i toto idea with Neil Gaiman’s tradition of creating a dreamworld/storyland/mythcluster with references to mythical and fictional characters. Decent light read, don’t expect it to change your life. Overall a good story, likeable characters, nothing too heavy hitting, but it was enjoyable.
