5.0 out of 5 stars A lyrical doorway to the imagintaion., 17 Mar. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Weaveworld (Voyager Classics) (Paperback)
When we first open the pages of weaveworld we are greeted with an obsorbing opening "nothing ever begins" and from then on we are brought with Cal Mooney on a quest that we all share in our hearts. We find the character so close to our own hearts that we often feel like it is us there on the printed page and not a fictitious character. Suzanna is the typical modern woman, whom we all know in a part of our lives, but the most beautiful thing about this book is the discription of the characters, whether it is Cal, Mimi or Immacolata and her sisters. We can taste the dread of these characters and rejoice in their triumphs. We fall in love with the likes of Jericho and hate Shadwell because not only of the responses of the characters to them, but the lyrics used in this magnificent piece of prose let us not only make our own assumptions of their characters and their flaws, we also see true sufferring and the range and depth of the human spirit,through the mediums of love, hate and religion and belief. this is an incredible book, that deserves countless re-readings, purely because in every re-reading (that I have done, and there has been plenty)we find an new layer of fabric, a new thread of light and a new decoration of emotion that we missed previously. Rich and diverse with plot and imagination, Weaveworld is a masterpiece of the English language, of the triumph of a daring novelist who pushes us to the edge of our imaginations and forces us to watch. Utterly brilliant and beautiful,Weaveworld should be compulsory reading for all those who love the language of the mind.
