Sacrament (Audiobook) by Clive Barker |

A weirdly absorbing and entertaining tale that offers more disturbing delights from one of our most inventive and risk-taking writers.

Reading such a richly textured but never excessive book kicks my author’s ass. I think readers are the last reasonably secure pool of intelligent individuals in this country, and I think if you start to condescend to that pool of individuals then the culture is lost.

He makes a very strong connection with the I keep circling typing in comments here because this book so totally blew my mind that I can’t even begin to get my thoughts together.


At times the female voices all sounded the same. He went in cautious pursuit of it, like a spawning fish climbing waters that would have dashed him to death without the Nilotic ahead of him to breast the flow.

But with that love comes a grim education. It was a standard read, but I would really hope for more from this author. It’s also about what’s happening to our planet. When Will awakens, he sets clivr on a journey of self-discovery – one where he will penetrate the ultimate mystery and finally unlock the secret of his destiny.

Like many of my generation, I went through a Clive Barker sacramet when I was a teenager. As so often with Clive Barker it’s difficult to place his work in specific genres, but I’d say it’s a dark fantasy. He was the moon that cast the shadow of a cloud.
