I generally don't care for Clive Barker's novels, half the time I have no idea what he's talking about, but that wasn't the case with Nightbreed, interesting creatures who are all too human in their own way. Surreal and dreamlike, typical of this author. Yet the characters became very real to me.
I rather enjoyed this foray into a Barker-world.
