The Bookbag | Neverwhere & H. P. Lovecraft Compendium

Hi everyone, Trynda here.

Today, I’m bring you a BookBag video where I’ll be talking about Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, I started this book a few months back and I just haven’t had that much time to read over the summer but I finally got around finishing it and now, I’m gonna talk about it.

If you’re not too sure what Neverwhere is, it’s basically an urban fantasy set in London where Richard Mathew, a regular everyday man is kind of pulled into this underground London society that is based around magic and the feudal system.

I couldn’t really connect with Richard very much, I didn’t understand why he didn’t want to go back to a fiancée that didn’t treat him very well, and I could understand why he wanted to go home but it just felt like a lot of time he was blundering through when he was smarter than how he was acting. I really liked Door, I really wish that we could have seen more from her perspective and just see how she felt about the London Underground and i just wanted to learn more about her and her past and more about what she thought about the everyday life that she knew opposed to Richard who was thrown into something unusual.

All in all, I really like the book and I’m glad to have read it, I just wish that there was less of head hopping and the main character of Richard was a little bit more relatable in the sense that he was actually working to go home towards something that actually mattered and it would have made Richard seem a little more believable to me because it just didn’t make sense that he was going to return to someone who just didn’t deserve him in the first place.

Next on my to be read list is the H.P. Lovecraft compendium and I’m really looking forward to reading this because I’ve never actually read any of H.P. Lovecraft’s work so, I’m really excited to get into all the stories that people always talk about. I think that’s it for this week’s video so, I will talk to you guys next week.

The Bookbag | Gone Girl & Neverwhere

Hey everyone.

Trynda here, Bringing you a Book bag video about Fahrenheit 451, Gone Girl And Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.

I really enjoyed Fahrenheit 451 and I thought that it had a lot of interesting parallels to our modern day society even though it was written back in the 50s.

And if you’re interested in how technology impacts the way we’re in trap with the world, I would definitely recommend it for you.

The first book I’m going to talk about is Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

I’m having a hard time getting through it because I don’t like Amy’s character, I didn’t like her in the movie and I don’t like her in the book because she’s just an untrustworthy person and untrustworthy people just don’t sit well with me.

And that just makes me drag through the scenes that they’re in.

I’m really enjoying Nick’s perspectives and seeing Nick and Amy’s perspective side by side are really interesting and I’m looking forward to seeing how Gillian pulled off the ending.

So, I am looking forward to finishing it, I just have to push through the scenes that I find that I don’t like very much.

And next on my reading list is Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.

I’ve heard a lot about Neverwhere and I’ve never had a chance to read any of Neil’s work so, I though that this will be a good chance to familiarize myself with the urban fantasy with only a little bit more outside of the paranormal fantasy with vampires that I’m usually reading.

So, that’s it for now guys.
