  1. B 76% GoodNotes A clever concept done too cookie cutter to be anything special, with a hero too vanilla and ill defined to be relatable.


  2. In an infinity of worlds, anything is not only possible, it s mandatory.Enter Joey Walker armed with his extraordinarily bad sense of direction and a burning desire to pass his final exam he manages to actually get lost on our planet and walk to another one Joey discovers that he s a Walker and that he s not the only one Throughout all the multidimensional universe every conceivable possible version of Joey Walker has this potential but only a small fraction discover their abilities After the ac [...]


  3. I didn t know what to expect Once I knew, I expected I got less.Interworld is the coming of age story of a boy finding himself, quite literally Joey Harker is your typical kid, whose main concern is a certain girl and popularity at school He comes off fairly average, but the way he s written, you re never sure if he s smart or stupid Whatever the case, he sure did know a lot of pop culture references through out the ages, regardless of his own age and point of reference, so I would have to gues [...]


  4. I must be a real geek I laughed my butt off at the phrase opposition is unproductive Only a real Star Trek geek would have been able to translate that to resistance is futile I m in no way sure what InterWorld is It s part science fiction, part fantasy, part allusion to all things in geekdom Take some of Ender s Game and mix it up with Neverwhere Toss in some Star Trek, some Twilight Zone, and some Wizard of Oz for fun I started this book at dinnertime last night and it s almost lunch time now I [...]


  5. I m always a bit shocked when a Neil Gaiman book manages to make a public release without me knowing about it I wonder if I m paying close enough attention to the blogs and journals that let me know about new releases I mean, it s Gaiman, and I didn t know about it What network did I miss InterWorld is a juvenile novel, not even a YA novel, though, and that might be how I missed it I almost missed out on M Is for Magic, and I remember the first time I saw Coraline was long after it had been orig [...]


  6. Opposition is unproductive This phrase appeared in the book and cracked me up All I could think of was Resistance is futile Trekkies out there will know what I m talking about I didn t realize that this was a Young Adult title when I requested it from the library Since I had already downloaded it, I figured I would give it a listen anyway, and I m glad I did.This wasn t the usual Gaiman fare, it s a sci fi tale about a young man named Joey Harker who discovers he s a walker I m not going to get [...]


  7. With open heart and open mind, I set out to love this book.I read everything Gaiman at some point.I own every copy of Sandman and have several signed I waited on line, yes I did.I own all his books.I even own some rarities such as, Being an Account Of The Life And Death Of The Emperor Heliogabolus 1927 our of 2000 signed and his Three Penny Opera Yeahfanboy.This book was recommended to me as I must have missed its release somehow.I rushed to read it andt so much.Perhaps it was the fact that this [...]


  8. It pains me to give this book three stars Physical pain I love Neil Gaiman and almost everything he touches His children s books are generally just as enjoyable for me as his adult fiction This was clearly YA I read a lot of YA, so the three stars aren t because of that The byline for this particular novel includes Michael Reeves Perhaps this is the real problem Reeves may be an excellent writer, but Gaiman he is not.There is an explanation, framed as an author s note, explaining how this book c [...]


  9. The premise of this book was very inventive, but I never really felt like I was reading a Neil Gaiman book True, it was co authored with Michael Reeves, so perhaps his was the overriding influence of the novel There are some Gaiman hallmarks wonderfully strange ideas about alternate universes that are created each time a monumental decision must be made thus creating a separate universe for the possible outcome of each alternative offered by that decision as well as fantastic creatures inhabitin [...]


  10. See Ceridwen s review, but additionally Why all the nonsensical quantum mechanical mumbo jumbo when there s magic in the book If there s magic it s a fantasy and trying to justify it in an SF way only makes you look apologetic Skip all that and go the Moorcock route he had a fantasy multiverse before everybody else I think and he doesn t justify it at all, because none is required.


  11. No lo puedo continuar Parece escrito por un joven de 15 a os al que todavia no le llego el cambio hormonal ni le pego la adolescencia.No puedo creer que Gaiman publicara esto con su nombre El otro no tengo idea quien es y espero no volverlo a leer.Literalmente hablando, cualquier persona del mundo puede hacer un mejor trabajo que esto Si lo ven de esa manera, es un mensaje esperanzador en realidad Todos tenemos la capacidad de escribir mejor que este libro de Gaiman y el otro comosellame.



  12. The concept is brilliant Joey Harker finds that he s capable of walking between worlds, alternate realities of every variety, from the fully magical to the fully technological to everything in between And every alternate version of Joey Harker is capable of doing the same They ve gathered together as a sort of paramilitary force to keep the forces of pure magic Hex and pure technology the Binary at bay And there s the best part of the whole book the concept.The story itself is a bit paint by num [...]


  13. INTERWORLD BY NEIL GAIMAN AND MICHAEL REAVES Most people are familiar with Neil Gaiman, who has written such great novels as Neverwhere, American Gods, and Coraline for younger readers, but not so many know Michael Reaves Reaves has written for Star Trek The Next Generation, The Twilight Zone, and Batman The Animated Series, as well as the New York Times bestseller Star Wars Darth Maul Shadow Hunter Gaiman and Reaves began working on the idea for Interworld in 1995 wishing to make it a televisio [...]


  14. Quite an enjoyable work by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves Again while I wonder just how youthful the young readers this book is meant for ought to be as it s quite dark in a few places is well plotted, written, and characterized.This an adventure with many familiar points placed in a science fiction world that most YA readers will like There is adventure, daring do, misunderstood youth, homesickness, even a slight twist on the boy and his dog I enjoyed it and think, being sure that the reader is [...]


  15. Questo libro stato una bellissima scoperta Avevo sempre sentito parlare della bravura di Neil Gaiman e finalmente ho avuto la possibilit di leggere questo capolavoro della fantascienza che realizz insieme a Michael Reaves Leggendo, mi capit svariate volte di rimanere sbalordita dall immensa fantasia racchiusa in questo libro, mi chiedevo come avesse fatto la loro mente a dare origine a un intero universo formato da una miriade di mondi paralleli, all idea che a salvare questi mondi non sarebbe s [...]


  16. 2.5 starsIt s children s book than YA and it s probably weakest Gaiman s book I read.It s ok, rather amusing book but not outstanding in any way, it doesn t feel like something written by extraordinary writer like Gaiman.


  17. Joey Harker has no sense of direction He has even managed to get lost in his own house.But one day, on a social studies assignment, he outdoes himself He wanders out of his own world into a neighboring dimension where he doesn t exist.Beings from assorted other neighboring worlds and dimensions are now after him for his worldwalking ability There are the people from Hex, who want to boil him down to his essence, and use him to power their ships There s also another empire among these alternate w [...]


  18. InterworldThree months ago I saw that a new book by Neil Gaiman titled The Silver Dream was out and being the fangirl that I am, I ordered it without a second glance When I held my copy in my hands a few days later, a closer look at the cover revealed that it was A sequel to A sequel A sequel to what Interworld Hang on, that sounded familiar And I realised that I ve been given this for a birthday or Christmas a couple of years ago and it had been sitting on my shelves unread since, because I had [...]


  19. Este, sin lugar a dudas, es uno de los libros m s raros que he le do No s lo por la trama, que por s sola ya es bastante loca, sino tambi n por los escenarios y las descripciones que te dejan la cabeza a un paso del cortocircuito porque es dificil simo imagin rselos Pero, a pesar de todo eso, InterWorld es una historia nica al menos para m , pues no hab a le do nada parecido y bastante entretenida Aunque, claro, nada de todo eso le quita lo liosa y confusa que es por partes Vamos a ver, InterWor [...]


  20. Science fiction is not usually Neil Gaiman s forte, but I doubt many would suspect that after reading Interworld Granted, he doesn t quite abandon his use of mysticism and, in my opinion, it s one thread adding to a rich tapestry of story weaving.Like with Coraline, Gaiman is appealing to a younger audience than the one he usually writes for Unlike Caroline, I don t think he quite hit the mark The general plot and some of the vocabulary might prove frustrating to someone younger than high schoo [...]


  21. It seems a shame that just after reading the just now Newbery Medal winning The Graveyard Book I would pick up the all together pedestrian and disappointing Interworld by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves An afterword reveals that the pair wrote the book as an extended pitch for a TV show concept they had created years ago and that when it failed in its purported purpose, it lay in the proverbial desk drawer for years Perhaps it should have stayed there Alright, for certain values of pedestrian Sur [...]




  22. Not so good, not bad But expected a lot from Neil Gaiman Although from what I read, this one was not written entirely by him So


  23. Neil Gaiman s name, along with the superhero looking cover, brought me to InterWorld I didn t know much about it, and I don t think I d even heard of it the first time I checked it out of the library, though I didn t actually get around to reading it that time, since I m pretty notorious for checking out an impossible pile of books As has been the case with my prior experiences with Gaiman, InterWorld proved an imperfect read for me, being primarily focused on world building rather than characte [...]


  24. I enjoyed this book probably than I ought to have I found it in the discount bin of my college bookstore with a Kids label on it for 5.99 In hardcover But it said Neil Gaiman on the cover, so I swallowed my questions and bought it.And honestly, I m really glad I did It s patently a book with a four star ceiling, as the characters aren t quite developed to the point that I would have liked the afterword reveals that the original idea was for the whole thing to be a children s cartoon, which woul [...]


  25. Worlds are cheap Kata kata itu yang menyelamatkan saya dari menutup buku ini dan membiarkannya tak selesai Gara garanya, saya membaca buku ini di Minggu siang yang malas dan sepantasnya diisi oleh buku buku ringan yang mudah dibaca Tapi yang saya temui malah, di antaranya Multiverse, Altiverse, quantum differentation, Heisenberg s uncertainty principle, multiple world lines mau nyerah rasanya Secara saya nggak pernah pintar fisika dari dulu PTapi dengan mengabaikan segala macam teori itu, yang s [...]


  26. The story is about a boy Joey Harker who can walk between alternate Earths, a skill shared by all the other Joeys in quotations because they have different names and genders and forms These Joeys form an army in order to keep the balance between science and magic used in the Altiverse This book focuses on the villains who wish to use magic to dominate the Altiverse.It is a quick read, and there are some questions that could have been delved into It made me wonder about what makes a person a per [...]
