When Newbery Medal winner Neil Gaiman and Emmy Award winner Michael Reaves teamed up, they created the bestselling YA novel InterWorld. InterWorld. Editorial Reviews. From Booklist. A lad discovers that he can walk between alternate Interworld (Interworld, Book 1) – Kindle edition by Neil Gaiman, Reaves. Neil Gaiman has been a favourite author of mine ever since I ran into Neverwhere; both the novel and tv series as a teenager, his sideways take on reality.
Hope the sequels are better. It follows the story of Joey Harker who, together with a group of other Joeys from different Earths in other bu universestry to stop the two forces of magic and science from taking over all of the Earths in different universes.
They talk of a gate in the Nowhere-At-All from which they can escape, but it was closing quickly. Perhaps that it was billed to be YA and follows that rote, simple formula?
Interworld by Neil Gaiman- review
He continually sets himself above those other Joseph Harker versions. There’s also another empire among these alterna Joey Harker has no sense of direction. Imagine how much a 9 to 12 year old would enjoy it? I am reading another book currently where the vehicle of “Time” also plays in and is overused. I started this book at dinnertime last night and it’s almost I must be a real geek.
True, it was co-authored with Michael Reeves, so perhaps his was the overriding influence of the novel. Vamos a ver, InterWorld sigue la historia de un chico bastante despistado y desubicado en la vida que se llama Joey Harker.

If I were again, I would have loved it. The concept is great. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. One of the first niel which struck me about Interworld, is that it begins with a very familiar and recognizable structure, and yet I didn’t care at all because the concept behind that structure and the world we find out about is just so wonderfully bizarre.
Not only can many do this traveling, but there is an organization that trains these “Walkers” and takes it upon themselves to protect each of gziman varying levels and locations of worlds. Even for a young adult novel, at gwiman over five hours Interworld is fairly short, thus the too rapid characterization is something for which there is no excuse.
In his final adventure, Joey Harker is forced to be a leader as he had to step up to face the ultimate enemy who was the mastermind behind HEX and Binary if he has any hope of saving InterWorld, the multiverse, and everything in between. The group soon set out on another mission.
Retrieved May 24, Sabriel is sent as a child across the Wall to the safety of a school in Ancelstierre. The premise of this book was very inventive, but I never really felt like I was reading a Neil Gaiman book. Together, the army of Joeys must battle evil magicians Lord Dogknife and Lady Indigo to keep the balance of power between all the earths stable. It was a long sigh, weary and worldly-wise.
After re-entering the “in-between”, they met a mudluff which looked like a bubble and communicated using colours. He’s believed to be the most gifted new Walker in many years, and Hex wants to, as noted above, cook him down to his essence and use that to help power their fleet of conquest.

However, he was captured as well and taken to meet Lord Dogknife, a large hideous goblin who led the people who captured his teammates. This book is about Joey Harker who is able to travel between these different worlds. There Jay explained to Joey how he was a part of an organization called InterWorld and their job was to keep the altiverse balanced by stopping the scientific force Binary from making worlds too scientific, while also stopping the magical force HEX from making worlds too magical.
Traveling from world to world takes weeks or days, except through the In-Between.
Gaiman’s magic is not only his ideas, which are truly magical all on vy own, but very words he uses as his paintbrush and paints to show us these worlds. They know immediately that it is special.
This was clearly YA. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. What network did I miss? This is why though the authors attempt to introduce some conflicts and relations between characters they are no sooner stated as solved, for example only after a time lapse description of Joey being treated as an outcast by his fellow Interworld members is the conflict immediately resolved by a less than thirty second conversation, making the whole idea of the conflict feel rather hollow. Gaiman and Reeves had an idea they had tossed back and forth for years.
Nov 10, Rezza Dwi rated it really inteeworld it Shelves: Finally there is the Interworld, where a seemingly endless number of Joey Harkers from different worlds, with different but similar names, all looking very different, of various ages, working together to stop the HEX and the Binary.
