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.

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

More please!

Superb story read by excellent narrator. Weaveworld has always been a favourite story of mine, I got my hardback signed by Clive Barker at the Forbidden Planet bookshop in London years ago, The audio version is amazing and highly recommended.

Now Audible, can we please have The Damnation Game, The Great and Secret show, Everville, and Imajica as soon as possible please!

Fresh and vibrant after all this time

25 years. Or more, and after all that time I still had vivid memories of it such is the impact it had on me then.
I was slightly scared going back in after all this time, I've ruined some of my fondest old memories by re-watching old tv shows but in the end I could not resist one more look at the old carpet and I was not disappointed.
Some of the accents were mildly annoying when I first started but I soon settled in and actually enjoyed the characterisation by the time I got to the end. Anyway, decent though the performance was it is irrelevant really, this is all about the story. A beautifull woven fairytale with allegory both subtle and bold and wonderfully written snippets describing a wondrousl world.
I have almost literally been somewhere else for the last 20 or so hours, laughing inside at the other commuters who have no idea I have another world in my headphones.
Bravo.

Nostalgia for a world as familiar as it is foreign

Super enjoyable. Got through it much faster than I expected because once it got going I was listening to it any free moment I had. Already I wish it wasn't over.
Barker writes fantasy with equal finesse to his horror works. Only once did it give me pause to remember his horror writing.
The voice actor was successfully dynamic and enjoyable to listen to.

Amazing Again! :D

This was the first Clive Barker novel I ever read but it wasn't the last.

Rereading this tale as an audible book has not lost it's splender, it's only added to it. Now being able to sit back , listen and enjoy rather than read is akin to being a passenger. Thereby, watching world's between world's and in world's unfold before you. Able to devour every bit of Clive Barker's imagination and description without losing a heart beat. Amazing!

As usual Simon Vance is terrific. He has a real mastery of characters and narration. His ability to narrate tales ranging from Sci Fi, fantasy, mystery, crime, as well as Dickens, Stoker and of course Clive Barker (and more!) is truly remarkable.

If this is your first Clive Barker book, I can assure you, it won't be your last! ;)
