Self decided Neville Chamberlain is a very, very limp reading subject. She’s sure he was a very upstanding gentleman, but please. In hindsight, he just looks really, really . . .
She’s passing over Britain’s War in favor of a Neil Gaiman. The last Neil Gaiman she read was American Gods. Which means, it’s been a while between Neil Gaimans. And she decided to go with an early one.
Just look at the cover of this book! WOWEE! She heard it’s about a “secret London” that exists underground.
The first few pages are giving her a Philip Pullman/ Will Parry vibe.
