Description

Clive Barker has made his mark on modern fiction by exposing all that is surreal and magical in the ordinary world - and exploring the profound and overwhelming terror that results. With its volatile mix of the fantastical and the contemporary, the everyday and the otherworldly, Weaveworld is an epic work of dark fantasy and horror - a tour de force from one of today's most forceful and imaginative artists.

Enchanting

Would you listen to Weaveworld again? Why?

Yes
This read has a lot of story and sometimes I felt as if I missed something.
Definitely have it on the list to read again.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Weaveworld?

In the end when there was a unexpected twist I was hoping to see

What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

The steady ness of his voice. When he is speaking as a woman you dont think about the person trying to be a woman. Just the person in the story.
His voice has tempo and seems to sing at just the right time. Its as if he wrote the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I very rarely stop and think about a book long after I have read it and its been months and I'm still thinking about this one

Ah, but what price Wonderland?

One of my favorites! Raw and dark fantasy from Clive Barker. A great story and wonderful narration by Mr. Simon Vance. Maybe not as polished as some of Barker's other works, but a grand modern fairytale nonetheless. Epic in scale and weight.

Finally, the audio!

My breath caught when I saw this was released. I read it years and years ago! And I already know Simon Vance is a good narrator. Hey audible, I'm also waiting for Imajica, and the Books of The Art! Please.....

ho hum.

it just keeps going and going and going...
I was excited about this book due to other reviews.. what can I say? I don't get it. I restarted the book 3 times trying to get a hold on it.
fairly predictable and boring. long winded and made up words.
Simon Vince as always is great.

Great story perfectly narrated

Unique and imaginative story, a true work of art. The narrator was wonderful, great characterizations and even did women's voices believably.

Worth it, but not amazing.

The story meandered and that might seem good because the book is called Weaveworld, but it wasn't in a meta way. It was more the kind of meandering like when you take a winding path through not so impressive scenery that seems like it will blow your mind around the next corner and never does. Ecerything about this bookmwas almost there. The characters were fleshed out just enough so that you almost cared about them, but not quite. Barker doesn't succeed in connecting the rrader to the fugue to make it a place worth saving, which is the entire goal of the book, so everything on the way to that goal falls flat. It is very imaginative and there are patches where Barker writes this beautiful, poetic prose, the kind of which everlasting platitudes are born because they feel so true to deeper truths of existence. For that reason, I think the novel is worth the read, but don't go into thinking it's going to be as good as Imajica.

Review of Weaveworld

“This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review"
Definitely a five star book by Clive Barker and a five star performance by Simon Vance.
Not only is there a weaved world within this story, but Clive Barker weaves the story as a master.
I enjoyed the complexity of each character without getting lost in the details, it seemed natural to recognize everyone in the story. He brings the unimaginable into vivid view.
I have failed to speak of Simon Vance except to say it was s five star performance. Let me clarify that he gave that warm feeling of sitting in a comfortable chair, curled up by the fire enjoying a good book, while delivering the characters' emotions and bringing them to life. This will be a book you enjoy.

Perfekte Geschichte, hervorragende Umsetzung!

Es gibt kaum ein besseres Buch! Der Sprecher verleiht den Figuren, insbesondere Shadwell, Uriel und Cal das gewisse Etwas!

Guter Ansatz läuft ins Leere

Weaveworld war für mich leider eine Enttäuschung. Die vielversprechende Story schafft es nie einen soliden Handlungs- und Spannungsbogen aufzubauen, die Protagonisten bleiben in ihrer Charakterzeichnung flach und in ihrer Entwicklung kaum nachvollziehbar, ein Mitfiebern stellt sich nicht ein. Die Abläufe erscheinen teils wirr und willkürlich, auch genretechnisch kaum zu greifen, irgendwo im Niemandsland zwischen Naked Lunch und Narnia. Der Sprecher macht einen soliden Job, ist aber zB bei der Nutzung von Dialekten inkonsequent. Von meiner Seite keine Kaufempfehlung.

An original concept vividly brought to life

A thoroughly engaging tale of magic and mystery, as always well read by Simon Vance. The four star rating is due to occasional slips in the Scottish accent which briefly interrupts immersion, but the wonderful story and his otherwise stellar performance drew me back in just as quickly.
