This was the first Clive Barker novel I ever read but it wasn't the last.
Rereading this tale as an audible book has not lost it's splender, it's only added to it. Now being able to sit back , listen and enjoy rather than read is akin to being a passenger. Thereby, watching world's between world's and in world's unfold before you. Able to devour every bit of Clive Barker's imagination and description without losing a heart beat. Amazing!
As usual Simon Vance is terrific. He has a real mastery of characters and narration. His ability to narrate tales ranging from Sci Fi, fantasy, mystery, crime, as well as Dickens, Stoker and of course Clive Barker (and more!) is truly remarkable.
If this is your first Clive Barker book, I can assure you, it won't be your last! ;)
My breath caught when I saw this was released. I read it years and years ago! And I already know Simon Vance is a good narrator. Hey audible, I'm also waiting for Imajica, and the Books of The Art! Please.....

it just keeps going and going and going...
I was excited about this book due to other reviews.. what can I say? I don't get it. I restarted the book 3 times trying to get a hold on it.
fairly predictable and boring. long winded and made up words.
Simon Vince as always is great.

Superb story read by excellent narrator. Weaveworld has always been a favourite story of mine, I got my hardback signed by Clive Barker at the Forbidden Planet bookshop in London years ago, The audio version is amazing and highly recommended.
Now Audible, can we please have The Damnation Game, The Great and Secret show, Everville, and Imajica as soon as possible please!

25 years. Or more, and after all that time I still had vivid memories of it such is the impact it had on me then.
I was slightly scared going back in after all this time, I've ruined some of my fondest old memories by re-watching old tv shows but in the end I could not resist one more look at the old carpet and I was not disappointed.
Some of the accents were mildly annoying when I first started but I soon settled in and actually enjoyed the characterisation by the time I got to the end. Anyway, decent though the performance was it is irrelevant really, this is all about the story. A beautifull woven fairytale with allegory both subtle and bold and wonderfully written snippets describing a wondrousl world.
I have almost literally been somewhere else for the last 20 or so hours, laughing inside at the other commuters who have no idea I have another world in my headphones.
