Honestly, I think this book has very creative characters and concepts. Vivid imagery and well written. The artwork that goes along with it was beautiful and creepy at the same time.

Now, I'm not quite sure why I couldn't get into the story. Part of me thinks that if I was still a teenager reading this book instead of an adult, it would appeal to me more. I read other Clive Barker books when I was a teen/early 20's and thoroughly enjoyed the books. I would recommend this books to some of my young cousins, but not so much for my friends.
