by Craig Etchison (Author). I enjoyed this book a lot because it was suspenseful, exciting, and flat out neat. This book showed me that I have to push myself to achieve my goals. I don't like to read, but there was something here that kept me reading. I either love a book or hate it.

Looking for a high-interest novel for general eleventh grade classes, I chose The World Weaver for its themes of empathy, self-sacrifice, collaboration, and the triumph of good over evil. My students remained enthralled throughout the reading of the novel. Listening guides were provided as well as a detailed graphic organizer for the four barriers and the four visions. Each of the four characters provide for in-depth character analysis essays which students had no difficulty creating. I highly recommend this as a whole-class reading assignments; however, I had to read to my students since new copies were only available at outrageously high prices.
Received a signed copy !!
I am honestly surprised that this book hasn't gotten a review as of yet. It's an enjoyable fantasy with touches of SF and a bit of teen novel as well (though a good amount, not the unbearable levels of Amelia Atwater-Rhodes or anything). He also comes up with the concept of a World Weaver, which I found very original.
A new kid at school is always treated weirdly, but in this case there is a reason. Larkin, the new boy at tenth-grader Peggy's school, is undeniably weird. But weird in a way that neither Peggy nor her friends can possibly guess. After a highly embarrassing incident when Larkin and his mom are invited over, Larkin admits that he is a World Weaver--by imagining something, he can bring it into existance. (And he has more self control than I EVER could)
Larkin is there to bring others to help him defeat the evil Gurnacht, another World Weaver who is trying to destroy Earth via the creation of another world. Unsurprisingly, Peggy agrees to join in, and two others team up as well: Regina, an unpopular and challenged girl, and a Donnie the popular jock. They set off through time and space to save Earth from annihilation, and soon must learn to depend on each other and themselves...
Craig Etchison crafts a fine portrayal of the World Weavers, the incredibly powerful beings who are capable of simply thinking things into existance. Larkin's portrayal rings true both as a young boy, and as a person who has an immense responsibility to think of. Though Regina and Donnie were not as clearly defined as Peggy was, nevertheless they are intriguing and grow gradually as they are forced to depend on each other. This theme of teamwork is very well done.
I found the writing style a little bare, but overall this is a creative and engaging piece of fantasy. I hope that Mr. Etchison writes more!
The World Weaver - first book in the World Weaver Trilogy - is a wonderful, fast paced fantasy adventure involving a group of high school kids. A quick enjoyable read for anyone between the ages of 12 and 16, though a teacher I know says many of her high school seniors pick this as their favorite book.
Larkin, an apprentice world weaver with extraordinary powers, is faced with the daunting task of trying to defeat his powerful uncle, who wants to destroy all that is good in creation. Larkin takes on the challenge, knowing full well his chance of victory is small. He is accompanied by 3 friends, all essential to achieving final victory.
The plot is fast moving, but layered within the story are messages about the benefits of caring for others - and accepting differences in others, the need to sometimes make sacrifices for a greater good, the need to get beyond selfish desires, and the need to stand up for what is good. This is done without being didactic or impeding the flow of the story.
At heart, The World Weaver is a cracking good story about good versus evil.
Many of my students (high school English) have read this book. In fact, I used THE WORLD WEAVER as the summer reading selection last year. WHY would I do that when Senior English-what I mainly teach--is ENGLISH LITERATURE??? The students will read this book. When I gave previous students the opportunity to read the book as one of their yearly novels, they told me, "Mrs. Burke-Cremeans, I actually read it and liked it. It is the first book I have ever finished."
I have used this book in 9th, l0th, llth, and 12th grades--the first edition--and this new edition. The students continue to tell me how much they like it and wish there would EVENTUALLY be a movie.
When we are having problems getting students to read, this one is a great choice.
As an avid reader, I do not like Fantasy at all, however, I certainly enjoyed Larkin, his friends, and their antics. Besides being quite interesting, I enjoyed "seeing" how the group worked together COOPERATING with each other. The diversity of the students was an added touch.
Etchison's words give us the opportunity to come away having liked the book, having "pictured" the kids in our minds, and having learned what can happen when we accept one another-no matter what. I LIKE THIS BOOK.
This is one of the best books I have ever read! It is dramatic, exciting, and greatly imaginative. The personalities of the characters are so realistic, it's like they are real people. it is so good I don't know what to say.If you like science fiction type books this is definetaley an awesome read.
