imajica: less a book, but an experience
on 6 June 2001
I once read someone's 'droll' comment that this book is so bad that they, due to its admittedly intimidating physical presence, reincarnated it as a doorstop. Whoever made this comment has clearly missed the point. Imajica isn't a conventional novel, with a streamline plot. What Barker has done here is more complex than that. He has provided us with an experience, not a novel. He writes with such unalloyed enthusiasm that a few syllables bring his worlds to life. Worlds that demand coming back to again and again to look at in a different light. Do not take my word for it, though. Buy this book, a masterpiece awaits.
