Reissue of the highly acclaimed thriller by the world's most outstanding dark fantasist. WEAVEWORLD is an epic adventure of the imagination. It begins with a carpet in which a world of rapture and enchantment is hiding; a world which comes to life, alerting the dark forces and beginning a desperate battle to preserve the last vestiges of magic which Humankind still has access to. WEAVEWORLD is a book of visions and horrors, a story of quest, titanic struggles, of love and of hope. It is a triumph of imagination and storytelling, an adventure, a nightmare, a promise... 'Barker's fecundity of invention is beyond praise. In a world of hard-bitten horror and originality, Clive Barker dislocates your mind.' THE MAIL ON SUNDAY.… (más)

I've expected to see more out of the actual Weaveworld in the carpet. It was awesome otherwise. 8,5/10 ( )

When people told me I'd probably like Terry Pratchett, this is more like what I had in mind.

People were wrong but Scott was right. I would tag him to say so but I don't know how. ( )

There is such a sweet power to this story and the world created here. Barker's storytelling creates such a compelling cast of characters, weaving together the real with what can barely be imagined and yet is brought to life here so beautifully, that this becomes a book to sink into and live with. I read it first in high school, and it stuck with me all these years, but journeying into the experience again over the last few weeks was still so refreshing. Barker manages to bring together elements of horror and fantasy in an epic unweaving and reweaving of another world, and his gorgeous prose is immersive.

I'd recommend this book to readers of any genre who want to be immersed in a world of the fantastic. ( )

An early Barker Novel, Weave-World stands out for many reasons. Barker seems to be writing for a larger audience. The sex, gore, and language are slightly tame compared to much of his other works. The writing in Weave-World is just as effective as what he puts out in later novels. This Novel and Imagica could almost be the same story. Where WW does not have the scope of Imagica its grip is just as tight. WW brings together a non-binary form of imagination that few writers seem to able to grasp. Barker is a master of forming worlds and he always links those worlds together using outside influences. This novel in particular is broken up with MANY chapters and sub chapters: A very ambitious venture for a writer so early in their career. The story is good. Good VS Evil. Love VS Hate and of course an element no Barker novel is without. Desire VS Consequence. Weave-World does not feel as if it has to gross you out in order to get your attention. But nonetheless it does so in several places. The novel will make you feel small but integral to your living world and ultimately Barker will remind you that while you (the reader) may be insignificant you are not so in the way you may think you are…..and that makes you integral. This book will bruise your intellect, smash your nose and allow you to walk down a path you might not be able to return on. Returning will be up to you. Barker will give you the tools to do so……but he will make you search for them. Where you find them will depend on what you find in those closed off and locked niches in your heart. Like many Barker stories this novel is a treasure chest. Open it and jump in feet first…….or head first. It matters not. What does matter is how often he will allow you to come up for air and if you are a fan of his then you know you might want to prepare yourself for something unexpected. ( )
