Enter Joey Walker - armed with his extraordinarily bad sense of direction and a burning desire to pass his final exam - he manages to actually get lost on our planet and walk to another one. Throughout all the multidimensional universe every conceivable possible version of Joey Walker has this potential but only a small fraction discover their abilities.
The multidimensional universe contains some worlds of magic, some of technology and some with both - all of which are at war. While this concept is great, it fell a bit short. We dash between huge story arcs that I barely have time to adjust to the new scene and set of rules before we are off to the next - everything feels so rushed and nothing is fleshed out.
We are introduced to a myriad of alternate-universe Joeys - from the wolf-girl to bionic-boy. And every one of these characters were dull. Joey was more reaction-driven than a personality-driven - he was as interesting as a block of wood. Despite that, I did enjoy reading this novel. Neil Gaiman always has such wonderful and stunning ideas. This is a work of fiction. Still, given an infinite number of possible worlds, it must be true on one of them.
And if a story set in an infinite number of possible worlds is true in one of them, then it must be true in all of them. Popsugar Reading Challenge - A book by a local author.
