For me, Interworld is to Neil Gaiman's body of work what Cars is to Pixar's body of work. Perhaps it's a pretty decent book, but I have such high hopes for anything Gaiman that I read, that this was a huge disappointment.

While the idea for Interworld is interesting, I think it suffers because it was written for younger readers and so Gaiman's writing is stifled. This world (or worlds, I suppose) could have been really deeply explored and the story expanded. As it is now, Interworld feels rushed and unfinished.

And the way it's told is a letdown. I felt like Joey was telling me the story after the fact. I didn't ever feel like I was being swept up in the storytelling.
