it was ok
bookshelves: young-adult, science-fiction, 2007
Recommended for: devoted fans of Neil Gaiman, young scifi nerds
Read in October, 2007

In "Good Omens" it was clear that this chapter was Neil Gaiman and that chapter was Terry Brooks. With "InterWorld" there was no such clear distinction. Lacking obvious Gaiman-ness in the prose was a disappointment to me. However, his influence showed through clearly in the ideas and plot devices. Also, I didn't realize when I picked up "InterWorld" that it's more of a young adult novel. That's not always a setback, but here it was. The story didn't grab me so that I had to devour the book. It was interesting enough to keep reading, but not driving. When I read in the Afterword that it was originally meant as a description of a TV Series I had a better idea of where these two authors were coming from. I guess my main problem was that the descriptions and action did not seem very well fleshed out.

Catherine If you are definitely a Gaiman fan I would reccommend it. However, don't put down anything really riveting to start it.
