This isn't Clive Barker's most original piece - I'll bestow that honor upon "The Great and Secret Show" - but it's a nice, quick, entertaining little read, and the book itself is very pretty. I would really have liked, however, to have known more about Clive's personal vision of Hell - Mister B. too quickly is removed from his home in the Ninth Circle of Hell to the World Above on Earth, and the reader doesn't get to know Hell at all.

Having read just about every single word that Clive Barker has ever committed to paper, this falls a little short of the mark, but Barker is one of those writers to whom I remain slavishly devoted, and I know of what he is capable.
