Imajica Clive Barker Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

"Rich in plot twists, byzantine intrigues and hidden secrets, Imajica is a Chinese puzzle box constructed on a universal scale...Barker has an unparalleled talent for envisioning other worlds."  — Washington Post Book World

From master storyteller Clive Barker comes an epic tale of myth, magic, and forbidden passion

Imajica is an epic beyond compare: vast in conception, obsessively detailed in execution, and apocalyptic in its resolution. At its heart lies the sensualist and master art forger, Gentle, whose life unravels when he encounters Judith Odell, whose power to influence the destinies of men is vaster than she knows, and Pie 'oh' pah, an alien assassin who comes from a hidden dimension.

That dimension is one of five in the great system called Imajica. They are worlds that are utterly unlike our own, but are ruled, peopled, and haunted by species whose lives are intricately connected with ours. As Gentle, Judith, and Pie 'oh' pah travel the Imajica, they uncover a trail of crimes and intimate betrayals, leading them to a revelation so startling that it changes reality forever.

User reviews about this book

  • Imajica

    By Ryandhenderson
    I grew up on Stephen King and Clive Barker. Out of all the books I have read over the years this is still by far and away my favorite. I recently gave a rare copy to my son after he graduated college and he has said that now it is his favorite story. As a deeply religious, yet open minded person, I appreciate the writing and never crossing the line of that which cannot happen, yet it challenges all I believe. Without challenges why is there faith. Truly a well thought out story and anything that makes you think that what you read is possible is brilliance. Definitely a masterpiece.

    I have read this book three times now and am tempted for a 4th. I will always come back to this book to relive the journey. Thank you, Mr. Barker.

    Barker is a master, his written descriptions are simply stunning. I read this book when it came out and still think it is my all time favorite read. A huge book, complex and wonderful. A genius mind at his peak.

  • Unreal

    By loungelizzard
    Books have the ability to take you away and almost lose yourself, but this is no ordinary book. With this story you can feel, touch, taste, and smell everything within it. It is truly beyond what any words can express. Anyone to whom I have recommended it has gotten the same jaw dropping reaction to it I did. Remarkable, fascinating, brilliant...
