“Neverwhere” by Neil Gaiman

This book was a loan from a friend (and former HRSFA member) upon finding out that I was going to England for the first time.  I would call it a pretty standard genre novel: easy to read, basically enjoyable, but not very substantive (particularly with regards to character development).  The fantasy aspects struck me as reasonably inventive, but the thing that made the strongest impression on me was the terrible gender politics: essentially every female character is one-dimensional and horrible.  This left a bad taste in my mouth.
