    Description

    Taylor is the name. John Taylor...My card says I'm a detective, but what I really am is an expert on finding things. It's part of the Gift I was born with as a child of the Nightside - the hidden heart of London where it's always three a.m., where inhuman creatures and otherworldly gods walk side-by-side in the endless darkness of the soul.

    Assignment: Joanna Barrett hires me to track down her teenage daughter, who decided to forgo the circus and run away to the Nightside. The kid has no idea what she's getting herself into...You can find anything in the Nightside-if it doesn't find you first.

    John Taylor is not a private detective per se, but he has a knack for finding lost things. That's why he's been hired to descend into the Nightside, an otherworldly realm in the center of London where fantasy and reality share renting space and the sun never shines.

    The Nightside

    The first installment is pretty good. It is true that the author says "The Nightside" at least once every 30 seconds but the story was entertaining enough that it did not bother me. My review though, is not so much for the book but of the narration. The one thing I absolutely loved about this audiobook is the use of narrator Marc Vietor. I loved his deadpan delivery for the books. For me, his voice is the embodiment of John Taylor. He has made the series and as an avid reader I refuse to purchase the novels but will instead listen to the audio. It's worth checking out especially if you are looking to be entertained during a car trip or even a daily commute.

    Dresden in Neverwhere

    This was a fun listen. Sure, it parallels some other fiction I have listened to before, and some of it comes off a little cheesy (reference Shotgun Suzie and Razor Eddy), but it still manages to bring a fun adventure for the casual listener which has a little twist to enjoy in the end. There is magic and mystery to be found in this tale with a man named John Taylor who has the ability to find things in an underworld where nothing is as it seems.

    Escapism - Fun and Furious!

    I really enjoyed the first book of this series and was certainly not disappointed with the story and the narrator. The time passed really fast and I couldn't stop listening to what was happening to John Taylor in the "Nightside". I've already downloaded Book 2 and can't wait!!!

    Awesome drinking game

    Okay, first the Story is actually entertaining and light, a fun and mildly creepy read, here in the nightside. The characters are enigmatic and entertaining here in the nightside. The only problem with the book is the CONSTANT repeating of "in the Nightside." to the point that I started laughing at particularly dramatic points in the book because they kept saying, "here in the Nightside."
    So I propose that you get the book and invite over some friends and do a group listen (probibly in violation of the copywrite) Take a drink whenever they say "here in the Nightside." You will be unconscious before the book ends.

    Not Disappointed!

    This was my first Simon Green listen and I just got the second book! Great, fast moving story. The narrator was outstanding. Recommended for anyone who loves a good mystery with spin to it.

    Hooray for the Nightside!

    The Simon R. Green "Nightside" books are some of my favorites, so I was extremely excited to see that audiobooks were made of them. Marc Vietor is delicious as the uber cool John Taylor. A little Sam Spade, a little Harry Dresden: John Taylor is London's most magical detective. This first book is a great intoduction into the Nightside and the subsequent books delve deeper into the mystery that is John's past. I highly recommend all of these books as they are fun and exciting. Who wouldn't want to take a walk in the "Nightside"?

    Urban fantasy a la film noir

    Wild characters, wild premise, wild ride. Philip Marlow meets Clive Barker. The first person storytelling and vivid characters keep the story racing along. Tongue in cheek references from Tolkien to Asimov. Good beginning.

    "Just the facts, ma'am..."

    I think some reviewers have missed the point. The deadpan, cheerless narration, the melodramatic writing - it's all part of the package. The tone is set at the very beginning, when the new client mentions the bullet hole in the door, and John says dryly, "Moths." It's tongue-in-cheek and atmospheric. I enjoyed it.

    Best Series Ever

    Book 1 may not be my favorite book in the series but I love all of them and the narrator deserves multiple awards. I am a fan of The Dresden Files but the Nightside series I play over and over.

    John Taylor rules!

    Loved this from the moment I started listening to this weird macabre Twilight Zone/Dean Koontz style story. The narrator is amazing. He really brings the main character John Taylor to life and is able to create an amazing number of other distinct characters. Wasn't sure what to expect but I was entertained the whole time. Two bloody thumbs up.

    Düsterer Detektiv

    Ich hoffte auf etwas Ähnliches wie die Dresden Files, eine Detektivgeschichte mit Magie und wurde nicht enttäuscht. Die düstere Gegenwelt erinnert ein wenig an Blade Runner. Der Held erscheint authentisch, nicht heroisch sondern eben wie ein gebeutelter Privatermittler, der für das Gute kämpft und sich immer wieder konsequent dafür entscheidet.
    Die Stimme des Lesers ist sehr angenehm.
    Viel Spaß beim Eintauchen in das etwas andere London.
