Seven books for fans of Haruki Murakami

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Monique Alice tagged seven books for readers who love Haruki Murakami, including:
Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman

There’s already something magical about London, but the London we know is nothing compared to the dual metropolis of Gaiman’s creation. In Neverwhere we learn there is a London Above and a London Below, the latter being the home of the poor souls who “fell through the cracks in the world.” Murakami lovers will recognize the theme of turning a city over to visit its secret and spellbound underbelly. Gaiman is a fantasy writer through and through, but his genius shines as much for the realism of his characters as for his whimsicality.
