In the tradition of Neil Gaiman's NEVERWHERE, Charlie Fletcher spins a tale about the unseen half of London. When George stumbles upon this world, he must defend himself against the living statues attacking him and get answers from dubious and shady characters that also inhabit this realm. With sole partner Edie, a magnet for trouble, his chances of surviving the night are slim. It's all compelling, to say the least. Jim Dale pulls listeners in from the beginning and keeps their attention throughout with his dynamic and energetic voice. However, his performance is not entirely flawless; his voices for female characters do not maintain the same consistency he manages with his male characters.
