About the Author

Critics of the horror story have frequently called Clive Barker the "British Stephen King". Born in Liverpool in 1952, Barker attended the University of Liverpool but moved to London in 1977, where he worked as a commercial artist and became involved with the avant-garde theatrical community. mostrar mais Primarily a playwright during this period, he also produced short fiction that he would eventually publish as part of his six-volume collection titled Books of Blood (1984-85). More than any other author of contemporary horror fiction, Barker has had a major impact on the direction of the genre. He has introduced strong elements of sex and graphic violence into his fiction, but these elements are employed with an artistic objective. Barker underscores his work with complex subtextual metaphors and artistic allusions. Preoccupied with the craft of writing and with its effect on the reader, Barker is an innovator of formula and genre, often parodying the former in order to change the philosophical contour of the latter. Barker has achieved commercial success not only with his short fiction but also with his novels, which tend to be epic in scope and to blend elements of horror with those of high fantasy. Barker is one of the more influential voices in horror cinema, having written and directed a number of films. His printed works include The Candle in the Cloud, Absolute Midnight, The Scarlet Gospels, and Black is the Devil's Rainbow: Tales of a Journeyman. His films include Dread, Tortured Souls: Animae Damanatae, and Hellraiser. (Bowker Author Biography) Clive Barker was born in October, 1952, in Liverpool, England, and graduated from Liverpool University. While a student, the resourceful Barker formed a theater company as an outlet for his career as a budding playwright. After minor success with several plays such as "Frankenstein in Love," Barker vaulted onto the horror fiction scene with the publication of his short stories, "The Books of Blood." Later books such as "The Damnation Game," "Imajica," and "Everville" have further established his reputation as a Master of Horror. Barker gained further popularity with several motion picture projects. Unhappy with previous film versions of his works, he chose to direct the successful movie "Hellraiser," which generated a string of sequels. In addition to writing and directing, Barker has produced several of the movies in both the "Hellraiser" and "Candyman" series. Besides his writing and film activities, the multitalented Barker is an actor and illustrator, with several published volumes of his artwork. Barker is a recipient of British Fantasy awards and a World Fantasy award, and resides in Los Angeles. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Kniha rozehrává příběh dívky jménem Candy, která putuje fantastickou zemí jménem Abarat, skládající se z pětadvaceti ostrovů. Každý z ostrovů představuje jinou hodinu dne a na každém z nich najdete všechny věci, které si vaše srdce, duše i mysl s tou hodinou spojuje. Dvacátý pátý ostrov je místo snů a záhad, který leží vprostřed toho všeho, a kde dostanete odpovědi na otázky všech časů.
Candy Quackenbushová se do tohoto světa dostane úplnou náhodou - svůj nudný život žije totiž v obyčejném, nudném městě ve státě Minnesota, jehož jedinou produkcí jsou kuřata. Spousty nudných a smrdících kuřat. A přiznejme si - kdo z nás by chtěl strávit celý život s kuřaty a hledat v tom nějaký smysl?… (mais)

Phantasmagorical, as a confused dream plays out; that's what this is. Barker's "Imajica" takes a meandering and recursive trip through linked realities similar to Zelazny's Amber-Chaos multiverse with all the opium-powered hallucinations of Coleridge's Xanadu, yet still manages to pull off a mature if self-indulgent morality play. The density of the imagery, the overly fraught relationships between main characters, and sometimes-heavy-handed intimacies slow the reading pace down; this book took a great deal longer for me to read than I'd anticipated.

Altogether pretty satisfying, at the end of the day, but by its very nature this is not likely to appeal equally to all readers.

Not quite sure what to think, because it's hard to judge without reading the other 4 Abarat books out there / planned.
