Top critical review
Not for me. Feels very much like a short story thats overly long.
on 24 May 2017
I gave up on this around the half way point. I don't read much fantasy horror but I have read the majority of Stephen King's work and although fantasy isn't my favourite genre I do enjoy his books.
This book however felt very amateurish, for want of a better word. I haven't read any of Clive Barker's work before so I didn't know what to expect, but it didn't read feel it was written by someone as established as Barker is. I was disappointed, and wouldn't recommend this. To me, as I said in the title of this review, it felt like a short story that was far too long. The idea and concept sounds good, but unfortunately I didn't feel attached to anything that was happening.
I gave this a 2 star rating as I felt a 1 star review is harsh considering this isn't my first choice genre.
