    One thought on “The Silver Dream”

    1. (B) 74% | More than SatisfactoryNotes: Small-scale and milquetoast, despite its epic ambition. Lacks the detailed mundanities that enliven imagined worlds.

    2. Allow me to introduce you to Joe, Joey, Josephina, Jaytimes a hundredEvery universe has a "Joey" and only a few of them manage to discover their true potential. They are Walkers (no, not that kind of Walker). They alone can travel between worlds and stop the "Big Bads" (rival powers of Magic and Science) from completely destroying the multi-dimensional universe. And they all have J-names - so freaking difficult to remember which one is the wolf-girl, cat-girl and winged-girl.My griping aside, th [...]

    3. I'm not ok with the false advertising of this book. I put this on my Kindle wishlist because I own the first Interworld novel and had felt it was a reasonably good book, and because I tend to enjoy Neil Gaiman's work. On the listing is "The Silver Dream by Neil Gaiman, Michael Reaves and Mallory Reaves". The cover art of this book has 3 different font sizes. The largest font, right up near the top, perfectly centered, in bright white, says "NEIL GAIMAN MICHAEL REAVES". Beneath the giant white l [...]

    4. So, after reading "Interworld" and being such a huge Gaiman fan I was honor-bound to read this.This time I entered eyes wide open.Neil Gaiman did not write this book.Neil Gaiman came up with the concept.Michael and Mallory Reaves wrote this book.Ok, now I won't scale my expectations.It was still "blah."Not saying "bad."It was nowhere near "bad," but it was "blah."I felt like Reaves spent an awful lot of time reacquainting the reader with the worlds created, the powers used, the past trials and t [...]

    5. Teetering between a 3.5 and 3.75 stars. This was a good little YA book; fast and interesting! It may not have been as good as book #1, but this is a trilogy, so this one just ends, without a conclusionjust stops. So I am looking forward to the conclusion in the last book, Eternity's Wheel.Note: book 1 was written by Neil Gaiman and he came up with the story line for the entire trilogy, but books 2 and 3 were written by Michael and Mallory Reaves. Don't let this fact put you off. Reaves are award [...]

    6. 3.5⭐Yang aku suka dari buku ini yaitu science-nya kental banget. Multidimensi, antivers, teori-teori ini itu. Seru bacanya berasa pinter, padahal sih aku terima-terima aja LOL.Dan aku juga suka POV Joey. Dia thinker banget ya anaknya. Like me. Apa-apa dipikirin. Tapi aku seneng bacanya. Otak dia jalan, memproses, produktif. Terus suka lucu pikirannya aneh-aneh.Aku pribadi lebih suka buku pertamanya. Di sini, tokohnya makin banyak dan hampir semua namanya berawalan huruf J. Bisa sih membedakan, [...]

    7. The iPad ate my review.The short version: Good. Middle of trilogy but won't stand on its own -- read InterWorld first first first! Neil Gaiman was joint creator of "story" but not a writer (whatever that means) and I think it shows. I liked the heck out of it, so probably rated it higher than it should get on technical merit alone.

    8. Este libro me gustó mucho y es, quizá, porque llegamos a conocer más a este montón de Joey Harkers que aparecen por ahí, a las organizaciones de Maldecimal, Lo Binario, InterMundo e incluso de los Agentes del Tiempo. Vamos, que el mundo loco que van creando Gaiman y Reaves se va haciendo más complejo y más difícil de imaginar con cada página que pasa, pero es genial y muy original. En El Sueño de Plata vemos que Joey ya es un activo regular de InterMundo, participa en misiones y tiene [...]

    9. Was this really written by Neil Gaiman? There are three names on the cover, and there's been very little fuss about this, so I'm going to guess the answer is "no" - he may have had input but this wasn't a real Gaiman effort. It definitely read as though the author(s) weren't really thinking this through as much as they could have.This is a sequel to InterWorld, and Joey is slowly - maybe - getting accepted by the others. He and his team are on a mission that goes badly, and somewhere along the w [...]

    10. When an author's name is at the TOP of a book cover in HUGE block letters, you sort of expect that author to have written the book. Unfortunately, this book was not written by Neil Gaiman, but by his partner in the Interworld novel Michael Reeves, and Michael's daughter. This book falls victim to middle-of-a-trilogy syndrome. There is very little action in this book. We spend a lot of time re-hashing everything that happened in Book 1, and then segue immediately into setting up the conflict for [...]

    11. Me encanta. De la forma más sencilla en que pueda expresarlo, me encanta. El mundo creado, la amabilidad en la escritura, la versatilidad de sus secuencias. De manera simple, me encanta y espero con alegría el tercero.

    12. Awalnya agak ga yakin dengan buku ini karena alasanku membaca buku pertama, yaitu penulisnya, tidak ikut berkontribusi di sini. Ternyata saya sudah terlanjur hanyut di dalam kisah dan konfliknya, yang kali ini begitu kental sainsnya, dan kehilangan sentuhan ajaib khas Gaiman.Karakter Joe Harker di sini cukup manusiawi, menjawab tanda tanyaku, bagaimana setiap hero dalam fiksi tahu ke mana mereka harus melangkah saat memasuki dunia yang sama sekali baru. Joe tidak tahu, dia penuh keraguan, dia be [...]

    13. So I wonder if this is kind of how scientists felt when they felt that the universe was much bigger than they had thought and it was expanding. Like oh that's really cool, but it hurts my brain to keep up.

    14. За пръв път ми се случва да прочета книга, да проверя дали има втора част и да установя, че всъщност има първа :DРейтинг и коментари като прочета всичко за МеждуСвят в правилния ред, но доста интересно засега!

    15. I agree that it's obvious Neil Gaiman did not write this book. It lacks the depth he has, even in his works for younger audiences. However, and it is a big however, Michael and Mallory Reaves did a very good job of continuing the series. Acacia is an intriguing new character and the book was action packed. I especially liked the fact that they managed to give each para-incarnation their own voice and characteristics. This was no easy feat. I'm really curious to see how they handled the third boo [...]

    16. Full review here.Bottom Line: Fast paced, action filled book that will be enjoyed by readers of the first Interworld novel but probably not independently. Recommended for libraries who own the first book.This is a case of a sequel absolutely not standing on its own. If you haven't read Interworld, go read it, it's fantastic. Then come back and read The Silver Dream. The story began in the first novel of a teen who gets lost on a class field trip and in his confusion "walks" between worlds contin [...]

    17. The Silver Dream picks up two years after InterWorld left off, and Joey Harker is, if not well-liked, at least a substantial member of the group. His team is out on a mission when things go wrong and they’re saved by a strange female named Acacia, who turns out to be more important than she’s letting on. In addition, the evil forces of HEX and Binary are coming together and not everyone at InterWorld can be trusted.Whereas InterWorld was filled with heavy scientific jargon, The Silver Dream [...]

    18. A lot of reviews seem to be confused, and, frankly, hurt, by the credits for this book - even though it is clearly (albeit not obviously) stated on the front cover what the arrangement is. But, for those who are wondering about the process - story by? written by? what? - this video and interview might be of interest to you:youtube/watch?v=JOVSmAn interview with Mallory Reaves (who, I feel, really deserves the primary writing credit for this, and the next, book): enchantedinkpotAs for my feelings [...]

    19. Поредната книжка на Нийл Геймън! Това е продължението на МеждуСвят, романчето, писано в съавторство с Майкъл Рийвс. Доколкото подразбрах, в това продължение не участва Геймън, язък. Дописано е от другия автор, Майкъл и щерката му Малъри. Аман от шуробажданащина, да ви кажа, с [...]

    20. Tres son multitud. Y más cuando por decisiones de marketing aparece el nombre bien en grande de Neil Gaiman cuando él solamente ideó el mundo en el que está basada la historia. Este libro está escrito por Michael y Mallory Reaves (sí, ese nombre en pequeñito que apenas se lee). Empieza a haber demasiados nombres para un solo libro.El mundo y la idea son interesantes. Realidades paralelas, multiversos, una misma persona con diferentes apariencias según el universo del que provenga gusta. [...]

    21. Interworld seems to have been one of Neil Gaiman's least noticed books. Yes, it's a collaboration with Michael Reaves, but I'd read and enjoyed his Shattered World years back, so it still seemed worth a look. And it wasn't great. I'd always thought a story with multiple parallel world versions of the same character as all the leads might be brilliant, but it sits badly with a young adult school-style setting - how can you have the protagonist be the requisite special-but-ostracised kid when they [...]

    22. Lol. Pasti saya korban kesekian yang ketipu sama buku ini. :vHarusnya saya sudah curiga dengan tulisan Neil Gaiman yang gede-gede dan luar biasa mencolok di depan itu. Lagi pula, seingat saya Gaiman cuma ngeluarin dua buku sepanjang tahun 2013 kemarin: The Ocean At The End Of The Lane sama Fortunately The Milk. Sekuel Interworld ini kayaknya agak cukup mengejutkan.Pantesan aja. Soalnya bukan doi yang nulis :v Strategi pemasaran yang bagus menurut saya dengan menuliskan penulis sebenarnya kecil-k [...]

    23. highly recommend reading the original interworld to get a better grasp of what is going on, but overall this is an easy read, fast paced, fluid, filled with cute references and accessible character descriptions. a lot shorter and faster to read then it might look at first glanceever, it felt like they could have done much more with the characters before pushing the storyline forward so fast. and the ending was pretty bad imho. i hated the cliffhanger sales idiocy for example, and i have no clue [...]

    24. Let me start out by saying that this isn't the worst book I've ever read. So that's why I decided to give it at least two stars. My biggest issue with this book is that it was soooooooooo BORING! When I start reading a book I almost always finish it, but because I was so bored with the story I stopped reading more than halfway in. I usually give the writer some time to draw me in, I understand that the beginning of books can be slow. But I was almost finished with it and still NOTHING WAS HAPPEN [...]

    25. It is a perfectly readable book. But as a follow on to Interworld I was hoping for more. The 'subtle hints' lacked in subtlety. The romantic subplot seemed a bit forced and unnecessary.I may just be judging it too harshly, having loved the first book (which I may also be remembering in an overly good light, I've not read since it was practically new out), but it just didn't live up to my expectations.

    26. 3.85 stars -- Most of this book I enjoyed. At first, the plethora of characters who are almost Joey Harker drove me crazy, but (somehow, magically), Reaves managed to make each one an individual person. I liked the story, only partially saw the twists coming, and loved the ending! And while not his book, there is a certain Gaiman-esque feeling to the whole thing (which is good, as Gaiman tends to be careful about what he signs his name/brand to).

    27. Juvenile, shallow and confusing. Even though Gaiman's name is on the cover, this is not a Gaiman novel. It lacks his insight, thoughtfulness, depth and grit. There is none of his patented darkness, and the writing is mediocre at best. The plot is confused and unwinds slowly and without subtlety. Not recommended.

    28. Pero, ¿Qué clase de idiota lee el segundo libro antes que el primero? Yo, obviamente. Como siempre, Neil Gaiman no me ha decepcionado, a pesar de que no había leído el primero, fue capaz de engancharme en la historia desde el primer momento, los personajes son maravillosos y a mayoría del tiempo logró mantenerme en suspenso. Al menos para mi, no fue un libro que pudiera predecir fácilmente.

    29. Petty good book 2 that retains the fast pace and episodic nature of the first book. Unfortunately it is one of those series books where it lands on a cliffhanger and is really just setting up the next book in the series, but because it is only 250 pages long I don't mind that so much. I guess it means I need to get to book 3 in order to complete the storyline ;)
