Publisher's Summary

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.

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.....

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.
