    One thought on “How the Marquis Got His Coat Back”

    1. The Marquis de Carabas is recovering rather nicely from a terminally bad case of death and the one thing he really, really wants Is his beautiful coat back.And it was truly beautiful, remarkable and completely unique, unusual pockets, some of which even he couldn t find every time he looked, magnificent sleeves, an imposing collar and made of leather the colour of a wet street at midnight More importantly than all that, it had style and it made him the man he was, the Marquis de Carabas The Marq [...]

    2. He was never sure, not then and not later, how you pronounced Marquis de Carabas Some days he said it one way, some days the other Most people know that Neverwhere is one of my favourite novels and universes I m quite obsessed with Neil Gaiman in general, so I know that he hates writing sequels or series Consequently, I had given up hope of any other Neverwhere stories being published long ago Oh, the joy I was so happy to be given the chance to meet Marquis de Carabas again The story is just as [...]

    3. It was by coincidence thank you, Social Media that I found out about this short story about the Marquis de Carabas, one of the best characters Neil Gaiman has invented in his novel Neverwhere.For anyone wondering yes, you need to read the novel before you read this.I won t say any about the content of the story because if I do, there will be major spoilers In fact, the very fact that this story exists is probably a major spoiler to anyone reading the novel but that is not my fault I m just glad [...]

    4. 5 Stars Beg for mercy, said the Elephant That one was easy Mercy said the Marquis I beg I plead Show me mercy the finest of all gifts It befits you, mighty Elephant, as lord of your own demesne, to be merciful to one who is not even fit to wipe the dust from your excellent toes Did you know, said the Elephant, that everything you say sounds sarcastic How the Marquis Got His Coat Back was included in the Audible edition of Neverwhere that I recently listened to When Richard s story finished and I [...]

    5. I loved the original Neverwhere partly because I saw to the TV series as cheesy as it was and loved it, partly because it is set in around London and that is always a good start and obviously it was Neil Gaiman Now over the years there have been several versions of the book from the definitive version to the graphic novel yes I have them all but never really has there been a return to the world of Richard, Richard Mayhew, Dick.Until now this was a one off story set a short time after the book de [...]

    6. The Marquis de Carabas has mislaid his coat Or it may have been stolen It was unique, with imposing collars, numerous hidden pockets and was the colour of a wet street at midnight Whatever has happened to it, he wants it back Rumour has it that it is in being held by the shepherds in Shepherds Bush and having just got over a nasty incident of dying, he needs to be very careful how he goes Very careful indeed In this all too brief novella, we are deeply immersed once again in the surreal world of [...]

    7. Really enjoyed this definitely recommended if you liked Neverwhere.Especially amusing to see the Marquis reacting to his brother too.

    8. Now I want to re read Neverwhere I m hugely in favour, by the way, of all short stories being released in this way, it feels very productive to complete a small booklet in one day One thing I love about Neil Gaiman is that no matter how long or short the story, the scale of his world is never diminished, he s a fabulous storyteller, giving you such a clear view of the universe his characters inhabit How The Marquis Got His Coat Back fills in a gap but is just as dark, twisting, turning and magic [...]

    9. De Carabas is one of my favourite Neil Gaiman characters and this short story brought back memories of Neverwhere and the Marquis It was funny, it had twists, it was amazingly written and sprinkled with awesome And yes, I am a fangirl.

    10. The Marquis de Carabas liked being who he was, and when he took risks he liked them to be calculated risks, and he was someone who double and triple checked his calculations How the Marquis Got His Coat Back is a wonderful short story, where, in his search for his beautiful coat, de Carabas encounters old foes and new perils, and much to his chagrin, his older brother We see the Marquis being uncertain and in need of rescue something that would never have happened if he still had his coat And al [...]

    11. I ve read it for the first time in an Anthology and I found it amazing then Now, after reading the book the opinion remained the same, but I had informations at hand and I ve enjoyed .I hope to see in the future of this universe depicted in further adventures.

    12. If you have read Neverwhere, you will probably remember how all the Marquis wanted after recovering from death, that is was to get his coat back Well, guess it was finally time for him to get a move on The coat It was elegant It was beautiful It was so close that he could have reached out and touched it And it was unquestionably his This was a lovely short story, but I suppose its greatest excitement lies in the fact that it allowed readers to re visit London Below, a place they had come to love [...]

    13. Neverwhere is one of my favourite books and the Marquis is one of my favourite characters, so when I saw this short story at the bookstore I just had to pick it up and read it instantly And I loved it I felt a sort of comforting nostalgia in being back in the world of London below I first read this book in my teens, and it was my introduction to urban fantasy I also instantly recognized the way the Marquis spoke, and just fell into that familiar rhythm I was into this than I was in the Sandman [...]

    14. This is a little spin off short story from the book Neverwhere A book focussed on the secret underground civilisation below London, largely arranged based on tube stations, in an archaic fashion a book I love.So does it work Yes, I think it does.It s fairly quick, so there s not a massive amount of content in it, but it evokes the feel of the society and world built in Neverwhere and is a fairly engaging story in itself, with various clever ideas The main character is the only truly primary char [...]

    15. A really fun little short story which can easily be read as a standalone but which I assume would work well if you have also read Neverwhere I haven t yet read Neverwhere but I did really like this and so I now do want to read it a lot than I did previously and as this was such a short little novella I am happy to see that it made me want to pick up .This is exactly what the title says, it s the story of how the Marquis got his coat back and the various places and people that he visited and met [...]

    16. This was wonderful And whimsical And completely magical, as any encounter with Neil Gaiman is.I absolutely adored Neverwhere, so of course yet another visit to the magic London Below of sewers and rats, goblin markets and self assuring coats was welcome How the Marquis Got His Coat Back was a lovely, quick read a little reminder of a world that I once visited and have missed ever since.Oh, and I want a magic, wonderful, beautiful coat with four nearly impossible pockets too

    17. The Marquis and his coat are my first taste of Neil Gaiman and I have but one thing to say absolutely fucking awesome

    18. A joyous little tale fleshing out one of the most interesting characters and that s saying something in Neverwhere I confess I ve been a huge fan since watching the original BBC TV series back in the 90s, and could just picture the superb Paterson Joseph again as the Marquis, arrogance and charm covering a deep, childlike vulnerability.

    19. Short, light and entertaining I kinda had this deja vu feeling while reading the book remember baron Munchausen I bet the Marquis is inspired by him.

    20. Neverwhere es uno de mis libros favoritos y, aunque est bien como stand alone, me quedaban las ganas de leer aunque sea una secuela How the Marquis Got His Coat Back logr cumplirme el sue o por un rato Es una secuela muy corta sobre qu pas con el abrigo del Marquis de Carabas Marqu s de Carab s, en la versi n en espa ol, pero prefiero el nombre ingl s , despu s de la primera novela, y c mo l hace todo lo posible por recuperarlo Ac , s lo aparecen el Marquis y su bonito, excepcional y nico abrigo [...]

    21. 3 StarsIt was nice, after years, to be in London Below again with a new story.The Marquis de Carabas is looking for his coat, after the unpleasant events that occurred to him in Neverwhere Oh Marquis, whoever you are, I did miss you.The story expands the world and we get to be in the head of this unique character I wish the story could have been longer There were glimpses here and there of the world I fell in love with, but it wasn t the fantastic story I was expecting And although the Marquis [...]

    22. This was a fun little story that displayed the Marquis de Carabas in a different light human, less indestructible Neil Gaiman s narrating ws, as always, a delight to listen to I was sorry to see the story end.

    23. I had forgotten how much fun is London Below and the Marquis It was wonderful to see London come to life quite literally again It even made me want to re read Neverwhere again It s so wonderfully chaotic and confusing.

    24. It relates to Neil Gaiman s amazing Neverwhere novel A side story quest of one of the characters, the Marquis de Carabas Really nice Recommend reading Neverwhere first, tho It will make sense like this.
