Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
"Islington was looking down on everything from far above, hovering in the air, as one hovers in dreams, as it had hovered in those long- ago times. There were buildings in that city that were many hundreds of feet high, but they were dwarfed by the gray-green Atlantic waves. And then it heard the people scream. There were four million people in Atlantis, and, in its dream, Islington heard each and every one of their voices, clearly and distinctly, as, one by one, they screamed, and choked, and burned, and drowned, and died.”
