    One thought on “The Woven Path

    1. X

      Do not judge this book by the cover or the dull sounding and ill-fitting synopsis! After the first few chapters which fit the synosis nicely, the book takes a much darker (and more exciting, in my opinion) turn. There's time-travel, war, a talking teddy bear and, unfortunately, not many characters left by the end of the book. Despite the very odd-sounding above combination of things, I thought the book was very good and am looking forward to starting the sequel soon.

    2. PaperTigerMaddy

      Another problematic novel from a wildly inconsistent author. (Spoilers)Firstly, the 'romance' was an offensive literary poster child for 'No means yes'. Twenty chapters can be condensed into 'If I harass this unwilling woman for long enough, she'll fall in love with me out of sheer exhaustion, and then all the kiddie readers will cry because they're being brainwashed that this is real romance.' Are you kidding me? SO MUCH NO.Secondly, the novel couldn't decide what its actual focus or genre was. [...]

      Wow - if this is fantasy aimed at children, then I want to go back to primary school!It's the story of Neil, whose father becomes a caretaker at a strange old museum, where three old ladies live amongst some very odd exhibits. He meets a talking bear, gets sucked back in time and ends up fighting the Prince of Demons during the blitz. I don't remember the stories I read as a child having plots like this!I loved it. It's powerfully written and doesn't pull any punches. It's very dark in places an [...]

      I hated this book. I'd give it a lower rating if it wasn't so excellently written. Some of the imagery and events cross from dark into outright horrifying. My problem is that I read The Woven Path at a very young age, so the multiple murder scenes and awful dog stoning seemed extremely inappropriate for a "children's book" (but I guess it's more of a young adult/teenager novel). I had nightmares for days after reading this; The Woven Path is one of the only books I actually regret reading. That [...]

      I was spell-bound by this book when I was younger, especially because at the time I was very much interested in World War II and the Blitz. Some of the imagery is still fascinating, such as Ted, who is a teddy bear containing the soul of a dead US Airman, and an escaped demon envisioning itself as the Nazi bug on World War II propaganda.

    6. Donna

      I loved this book when I firt read it at the age of 14. It's refreshing when a kids book deals with slightly darker subject matter, as this one does.I really liked the story and character development - Ted was great. I think I even shed a few tears at one point.

    7. Lazellia

      I was obsessed with Robin Jarvis’ books as a child, and was really excited when this one was released, but I remember getting about a quarter of the way through and giving up. I didn’t like the time travel element and it seemed to be moving too slowly. In the last couple of years, I rediscovered his books with the Dancing Jax and Legacy of Witches series, and I decided it was time to give the Wyrd Museum series another go.I loved the start of the book, but once Neil and Ted went back in time [...]

    8. Matthew Hodge

      An outstanding start to a new Jarvis trilogy. A strange but hugely compelling combo of Norse mythology, time travel and East End London during the Bltiz.It's fantastical, it's scary, and ultimately heart-wrenching. What more could you want?

    9. Sandra Visser

      In a grimy alley in the East End of London stands the Wyrd Museum, cared for by the strange Webster sisters – and scene of even stranger events.Wandering through the museum, Neil Chapman, son of the new caretaker, discovers it is a sinister place crammed with secrets both dark and deadly. Forced to journey back to the past, he finds himself pitted against an ancient and terrifying evil, something which is growing stronger as it feeds on the destruction around it…Dare to enter the chilling an [...]

      My first overwhelming impression is that this book is too violent for children. Thankfully it does not seem to have been misrepresented in the market (I saw a quote somewhere stating it wavers between a teen and adult audience, and I agree with that). Nonetheless, the opening chapters were very deceptive: child protagonist upset with his dad for moving, exploring his new home the Wyrd Museum and finding it spookyis in no way prepared me for an adult book that included brutal murders and dog muti [...]

      I will admit, I did not finish this book. The story's premise is that a boy goes back in time to WWII London trying to get his younger sibling back. A demon also goes back and is released. The demon increases the level of evil in people. So, when one jealous woman suggests to some young boys to harm a dog of a neighbor, the boys stone the dog nearly to death. The description of the dog at the point he is found still haunts me - he licks his toothless mouth and tries to crawl to the person he kno [...]

      neil chapman comes to the wyrd museum because his fathher has become the caretaker. The sisters of the museum are quite weird. when he is walking round the museum he discovers a talking teddy. His younger brother also finds the teddy and disappears through a time window and Neil is frightened for him and he jumps through the time window but because of the delay he arrives in wwii. Belial is a monster who they are trying to capture for the museum sisters. Neil has some frightening experiences dur [...]

      The 3 rating is meant to be "neutral" as I did not finish this book.When I picked up the book, I was thinking of a fantasy YA book. In reality, this is a much darker story which is a genre that I never liked. It definitely is YA (but not for the youngest audiences) and it reads well. It kept me reading well past the point I would have normally put down the book, but in the end, my indifference for horror / dark stories made me abandon it in favour of some lighter reading.If you like dark, haunti [...]

      really engrossing actually================Re-read 18 July to 22 July 2013You know, it's interesting that on re-reading this book I've kind of changed my mind about liking it as much as I did back then. I found Neil to be a bit obnoxious and wanted him to get on with things. Other than that, the story was pretty interesting and surprisingly dark. I think that's why I loved it the first time I read it: it was dark for a young adult's book and I found it to be unpredictable.

    15. Lauren

      This is definatly not one of the best books that I have ever read, but it was not entirely bad. So I can say that I liked it and not be lying. I am not going to tell you that you have to read this book because I believe that I should only say that to the best books that I have ever read. And this was not one of them.

    16. Fiona Lane

      This is a young adult book which is harmlessly dark, based on a museum that a family move to as their father got the job of curator their. There are all sorts of strange goings on in the museum which transport the curators children back in time to the blitz and the dangerous happenings of the time.

    17. John

      Another confused book. Not confusing; confused. Is the audience adults? Because the language makes it VERY clear that's the case. Is the audience books? The themes and childish level of emotions makes it VERY clear that's the case. Extremely difficult words and extremely simplistic emotions and characterizations make this book just a complete jumble, with no clear audience.

    18. krin

      This was an engaging fantasy mixing mythology (Norse and Greek) with time travel. The story started a bit slowly, but then picked up when Neal and "Ted" end up in London during the Blitz in 1941. There are spies, demons, and ghosts as well as a spooky museum, home to the Webster sisters (aka, the Fates). I look forward to reading the next book in the series, The Raven's Knot.

      The Woven Path by Robin JarvisI read this book a while ago and although it took me a while to get into it, once it got going I loved it! The idea is fantastic, and I have the other two books on my shelf waiting to be read.

    20. Edward Davies

      I adored this book when I read it in my late teens, especially the possessed teddy bear and the whole time travel scenario. Having now read the works of Connie Willis, it's possible to see the connections between the two, though this is much more child friendly.

    21. Tanya

      Read it many years ago, and I can remember enjoying it at the time. Think I'll place that on the list to re-read.

    22. Virginia

      Interesting read - part one of a 3 part series - I'm looking forward to seeing where this one goes - mixture of sci fi and mythology.

    23. A

      I remember reading this book as a young girl and I absolutely loved it. I want to read it again to see if it has the same appeal.

    24. Petra Be

      The story is fantastic, but it is definitely not for children. Some of the details could have been omitted, e.g. the poor dog scene.
