Simone Michael and Mallory Reeves wrote this book. As far as I can tell, Neil Gaiman had nothing to do with it.

Notes: I'd like to think it's ironic: a story with a fourth-dimensional plot where virtually every character is two-dimensional.

A small part of me wondered exactly what psychological implications it had that I never seemed to particularly like myself.
I can emphasize. I did not particularly like him either.

Joey Harker is one of the Walkers (each walker is an alternate dimension version of himself). Joey Harker is out to save the world (again). Like the previous two books, there feels like Gaiman and Reaves have to fit X amount of plot under Y amount of words. Everything is rushed and nothing is explained.

The final installment of the InterWorld trilogy sees the dreaded FrostNight wiping out all the universes and Joe(y) Harker doing his best to try and stop it.

The end of the second book left the reader on a cliffhanger, with Joe captured by HEX and Binary, the two evil groups working together to ensure the success of FrostNight. Eternity’s Wheel picks up with Joe deposited on his home planet, where he was abandoned to die as it was erased.

With the Harkers split up and the former InterWorld on the

Nope. Nope. Nope.

Heads up: Michael and Mallory Reeves wrote this book. I have no idea why Gaiman's name is on the cover apart from the additional generation of sales.

The InterWorld saga has closed out with a sad finale. [Think that slowly deflating balloon from your kids birthday party three weeks ago.]

The writing is tedious, and the story-line borders on the ridiculously juvenile. Granted the genre is for tweens, but there's been some serious dumbing down here into tiring cliches.

Joey Harker has seen the end of the Altiverse. FrostNight is coming. He---inadvertently---helped get it started. But he refuses to give up. Armed with a tenuous plan that's more luck and hope than a real chance, he starts to gather Walkers to himself. Because what else can they do but fight, even against an unstoppable wave that's rewriting reality?

I liked this book immensely, and I also had some pretty big problems with it. The first InterWorld book took a bunch of awesomely bizarre concepts an

Note- this is not a book by Neil Gaiman, it's a Neil Gaiman BRAND book written by 2 other authors. It's a pretty typical YA novel, following some of the rhythms and conventions of series like Riordan's books. That being said it's a decent entry in YA scifi/fantasy.

Not really for adults in the way Coraline or the Graveyard Book were serious literary efforts with YA leading characters.

I read all by Neil Gaiman. This is not written by him and is less creative. Furthermore, this appears to be written for teens. 2 of 10 stars

This is a good wrap-up to this series. I don't think Gaiman contributed much to the book, though. It is not up to his brilliance. His co-writers probably wrote this book.

Egy picit elmaradt az előző két kötettől, ugyanakkor nagyon kalandos ez is, egyik kutyaszorítóból a másikba kerülünk a csapattal. A Dereséj fenyegetése, a megoldás elég érdekes volt, és örültem, hogy Színesnek is volt/van szerepe. Akár nyitottnak is tekinthető azért, talán le akarnak még húzni róla pár kötetnyit később?

Joey Harker, interdimensional adventurer and regular good guy, returns in the final book in the Interworld series. Started by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves in 2007, the series was originally imagined as a screenplay or television series, and that concept is reflected in the story. The entire series reads like a movie; it's very visual and will appeal to fans of science fiction and action movies.

ETERNITY'S WHEEL chronicles Joey Harker's attempts to save not only his world, but every world, the

This may just be my age/current interest in YA and nothing to do with the book, so keep that in mind for this review.

The pacing of the story was frantic, the conclusion was anti-climactic and everything just seemed to sort of plop itself in front of the main character. It wasn't so much a separate story, but a continuation on the second, The Matrix: Revolutions of books.

Also, having exposition explaining the story 80% of the way through the book means that the book should probably take more tim

I am literally copying my review from the second in the series because it fits for this one too.

I don't care that is not actually written by Gaiman. I do care that it frequently is poorly plotted and things are introduced or happen solely because of external plot needs and not the actual progression of the story.

basically. it's not great. but it's also not terrible. there are some good bits. may be better for younger readers and boys.

Just OK. Series gets weaker as it progresses. A little tedious.

This was a pretty good, and action packed, conclusion to the InterWorld trilogy, though the first in this series is by far the best (I suspect because Mr. Gaiman had more of a hand in writing that one). Joey is back on Earth, our Earth that is (as opposed to the infinite number of other Earths throughout the multiverse), and he goes to his old teacher Mr. Dimas for help after the cliff-hanger battle at the end of book two. Joey "walks" to another Earth and recruits Josephine to his cause and wit ...more

Montana Library 2 Go | Okay but not great, though I admit that may be partially due to the serious delay in reading this series entry. | The cover is less misleading than the second book, in that Mallory Reaves gets the same billing as the top name, though the phrases "story by" and "written by" certainly weren't designed to jump out at you. It's been 5 years since I read the first book in the trilogy, and I think 3 years since reading the second, so I had to let a lot of detail come back to me ...more

As Joey faces Frostnight, he quickly begins to recruit previously unrecruited Walkers. While trying to find others after he discovers there are other Walkers scattered around and he suddenly finds himself with a team and ship - even if the ship is in another timeline. Will Joey and his ragtag team be able to beat Frostnight and save the Altiverse from total destruction?

I really enjoyed the wrap-up of this series, it was a lot of fun! This book, however, took a while to get going, which was disappointing given the cliffhanger of the second. They pretty much rehashed the entire two previous books in a conversation... it was annoying and interfered with the flow of the story. I read the previous two books.. a quick summation I can get, but it was REALLY long... Outside of that, I liked where it went and really enjoyed all the hints at who was what and how the tim ...more

This book was the conclusion of the first series of books written by this author that I have read. This was a trilogy that was co-authored. The character of Joey disappointed me in this book because he was a reactive hero instead of an organized, have a plan hero. The story ended in a happily ever after manner. The book had some entertainment value, but I did not enjoy it as much as I did books one and two. I will seek these authors out again in the coming year, I am just going to take a break f ...more

This is the last in the Interworld series, with no input from Neil Gaiman,which is probably why it's disappointingly flat and confused. The plot involves a lot of time travel as well as altiverse travel, but it doesn't hang together very well. The ending seemed to suggest that Joey was actually the Old Man in some sort of time loop - rather like Heinlein's short story All you zombies, without the humour and sureness of touch. Still should appeal to teenagers, who are it's intended audience. (I w ...more

Ook hier mis ik de magische stijl en typische creativiteit van Neil Gaiman.
Reaves & Reaves doen hun best, maar komen wat mij betreft niet verder dan een chaotische opeenstapeling van evenementen die een echt samenhangend plot missen. Het verhaal is niet echt een verhaal meer...
Een dergelijke aaneenschakeling van strijd en rust op de schaal van LOTR, vraagt ook om een aantal werelden en volkeren die dusdanig goed uitgewerkt zijn dat de lezer zelf er deel van gaat uitmaken. En dat mist Interwo

A great conclusion to the InterWorld Trilogy! This was a terrific YA read. My son recommended the first one to me, not knowing that it was a trilogy. His ten year old daughter had read, and loved it, as well. She was very excited, when I gave her a copy of the second volume, and I'll pass this one along, too. We encourage all the kids to read, and she's really caught up in this one. This series is highly recommended to anyone, of any age, who enjoys stories of parallel earths, and time travel.

Good read :)

Good trilogy without all the constant "rehashing" that seems to be required for those readers who don't start the series with book 1 or don't remember? I understand it but it still and me and the sequels in this set keep it to a nice minimum... Anyway, good YA trilogy with action, adventure and interesting time traveling twists as well as lessons in fighting for what you believe in and you only fail when you stop trying.

Great series. I'm glad this one recapped the prior book as the plot can get confusing with all of the time travel, multiple dimensions, and numerous early identical characters. I have a theory about the ending but I'm both frustrated and impressed that they left it up to the reader to make the final conclusion without any verification.
