A good listen

I enjoyed this story. The plot and characters were interesting, and it shows a very interesting new take on the idea of multiple universes.

In some places the writing was a little bit awkward, not as polished as I've come to expect from Neil Gaiman. I don't know anything about the writing style of Michael Reaves, but I don't think he deserves the blame.

I think what's likely is that it's a result of this story not being intended to be distributed as a book. It was originally a pitch for a television show, I'm guessing they had to make a lot of hurried modifications when there was a demand for it in book form.

There's not much character development. I think that's also a result of the story being written for television where the development happens over multiple episodes.

One thing I wonder: If every important decision splits off a new universe, what happens when you make an important decision when you're outside of them?

Interworld is a nice, light read. I recommend it.

A pleasant kid's book

We are being set up here for a sequel, I can feel it in my multidimensional bones. Well written, well read, there is a clean line between good and evil that makes this pleasant fiction, but not up to Gaiman's usual level of ingenuity. It would make a great animated movie. Would I listen to the sequel? Probably not. But keeping the attention of a 52 year old woman with this type of story is worth some kind of kudos.
Kudos to youdos Mr. Gaiman, Mr. Reaves
