InterWorld

by Neil Gaiman

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | April 22, 2008 | Trade Paperback

InterWorld is rated 4 out of 5 by 4.

An astounding tale of adventure, danger, magic, science, friendship, spaceships, and, oh yeah, the battle to save all the people in all the worlds in all possible dimensions.

Joey Harker isn't a hero.

In fact, he's the kind of guy who gets lost in his own house.

But one day, Joey gets really lost. He walks straight out of his world and into another dimension.

Joey's walk between worlds makes him prey to armies of magic and science, both determined to harness Joey's power to travel between the dimensions. The only thing standing in their way is Joey-or, more precisely, an army of Joeys, all from different dimensions and all determined to save the worlds.

Now Joey must make a choice: return to the life he knows or join the battle to the end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilarious, Hyperdimensional Read Ready for a mind-trip? You’ll get one if you read this book. It’s quirky, funny, and features an oddball main character and his team of multidimensional clones. Joey is so directionally challenged he can rarely tell right from left, which is what made me fall in love with this book when I first started reading it. I’m probably one of the most directionally challenged people out there. And then suddenly he can walk through dimensions. Cool! I wish that was why I always get lost. I love it when books do that; take something that seems like a disability and give it a twist. (Rick Riordan does this especially well in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, whose main characters suffer from dyslexia and ADHD because their brains are hardwired to read Ancient Greek and their hyperactivity is due to their battle reflexes.) While Joey is potrayed as the outcast for most of the book, he demonstrates his intelligence, quick thinking, and heart, which his teammates begin to admire him for. Although sometimes a tough read (Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves use words like “hyperdimensional geometry” and Joey has to answer test questions like “Is the improbability factor of a time-reversed world solipsistic or phenomenological?”), the long-winded words are all part of the book’s charm. Most of the time they just go in one ear and out the other. Don’t bother trying to sort out the meanings of these words or phrases in your head; it’s not worth the headache. Top off this book with kung-fu skills, magical wolf-human hybrids, and saucer-surfing cyborgs, this hilarious and unique MG/YA novel promises a new take on . . . whatever a multidimensional Altiverse is! Plus, there’s not many times you can say you’ve read a Science-Fiction-Fantasy novel!

Then, when walking downtown he realizes he has walked into another dimension. He learns there are many dimensions, even more planets, and a war for control. Joey and his new team are training to keep the peace, and make sure no one side is winning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great teen sci-fi! Awesome novel about a 15 year old boy with special powers to walk between dimensions. Both a morality tale about right and wrong, and the balance between science and magic. Stayed up half the night just to find out how it ended. Looks like it might be the beginning of a new series, as well, with just enough loose ends to leave it open for more, or for the imagination to run wild

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun, Light Read One day Joey Harker walks right out his own reality on Earth into an alternate reality. He finds out he is one of the Walkers, a group of people comprised of alternate Joeys from many alternate worlds who try to save the many worlds from destruction by the bad guys. This story really reminded me of StarGate SG 1 but instead of traveling to other planets they traveled to alternate realities. An interesting premise and a cute story complete with the requisite cute character, a mudluff who resembled a bubble. A fun, light read but nothing overly special. My copy states the intended age as 10+, though I would narrow that down further to the 10-12 age group.
