May 20, Jayson rated it liked it Shelves: A clever concept done too cookie-cutter to be anything special, with a hero too vanilla and ill-defined to be relatable.

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. Aft In an infinity of worlds, anything is not gakman possible, it’s mandatory. After the accidental death of Jay an older version of Joeyour Joey feels compelled to take up Jay’s post to defend the universe during the great war. The multidimensional universe contains some worlds of magic, some of technology and some with both – all of which are at war.
While this concept is great, it fell a bit yaiman. We just zip from one event to another – he’s lost in an alternate reality, makes friend with a bubble creature, joins the Walker-Academy, learns theoretical physics, etc. And that’s just the first third of the book. We dash between huge story arcs that I barely have time to adjust to the new scene and set of rules before we are off to the next – everything feels so rushed and nothing is fleshed out.
We are introduced to a myriad of alternate-universe Joeys – from the wolf-girl to bionic-boy. And every one of these inerworld were dull. Joey was more reaction-driven than a personality-driven – he was as interesting as a block of wood.
The other Joeys were only interesting due to their multidimensional differences – there’s the chick with wings or the Indian-floating-one – but other than that, they had absolutely nothing under their skin. Despite that, I did enjoy reading this novel. Neil Gaiman always has such wonderful and stunning ideas.
This is a work of fiction. Still, given an infinite number of possible worlds, it must be true on one of them.
And knterworld a story set in an infinite number of possible worlds is true in one of them, then it must be true in all of them. So maybe, it’s intedworld as fictional as we think.

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 guess baiman he spends all of his time gathering useless knowledge that a kid his age normally wouldn’t know. That phenomenon isn’t really touched on in the book. Countless possibilities exist on an infinite number of planes, yet the survival of everyone and everything falls into the hands of one boy and his misfit band of buddies.
Makes you wonder what everyone else is up to. Why not lend a hand? I mean, there is quite a lot at stake here, their own existence for one.
Interworld by Neil Gaiman- review | Children’s books | The Guardian
Not my favorite Gaiman book by a long shot. View all 3 comments. I must be a real geek. I laughed my butt off at the phrase “opposition is unproductive. It’s part science fiction, part fantasy, part allusion interwodld all things in geekdom. Take some of “Ender’s Game” and mix it up with “Neverwhere.

InterWorld (InterWorld, #1) by Neil Gaiman
I stayed up too late; I overslept; and I missed church interorld of this book. Agiman this book is, it’s terrific.
It’s really hard finding books that appeal to young teen boys who are no longer into fantasy that includes dragons and wizards. I think this book fills a niche that really needs to be filled. Apr 09, Thomas rated it it was ok Shelves: 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 originally released.
InterWorld tells the story of Joey Harker, a young boy who discovers his ability to walk between similar worlds. Both worlds exist independently of each other, and each is equally valid and true.
Joey is a Walker, and can move between all those worlds. This is not a Neil Gaiman book. A footnote at the end of the book details that the story is over 10 years old, and was put together as a novel over a long weekend after existing first as a television proposal.
Look, remember Lady Justice? Hero the Newmatic Man? They all served to prove that a Neil Gaiman idea could not turn into a Neil Gaiman story unless Gaiman himself wrote the words. Unfortunately, InterWorld proves the same point. View all 9 comments. All I could think of was: I didn’t realize that this was a Young Adult title when I requested it from the library.
Lnterworld wasn’t the usual Gaiman fare, it’s a sci-fi tale about interworl young man named Joey Harker who discovers he’s a “walker. This narrator, Christopher Evan Welch, he’s fantastic! Especially the voicing for Lady Indigo-he seriously rocked her voice and tone. If you enjoy YA sci-fi, which-honestly- I did NOT, before listening to this tale, you will most likely enjoy this imaginative story.
I highly recommend the audio version because this narrator is fantastic! I’m off to reserve the second book now. Apr 25, Calista rated it really liked it Shelves:
