Mister B. Gone Summary


Mister B. Gone - You hold in your hands not a book at all, but a terrifying embodiment of purest evil. Can you feel the electric tingle in your fingers as you are absorbed by the demon Jakabok's tale of his unintentional ascent from the depths of the Inferno? Do you sense the cold dread worming its way into your bloodstream, your sinews, the marrow of your bones as you read more deeply into his earthly education and unspeakable acts? The filth you now grasp has been waiting patiently for you for nearly six hundred years. And now, before you are completely in its thrall, you would do well to follow the foul creature's admonition and destroy this abomination of ink and paper before you turn a single leaf and are lost forever.

You have been warned.

    Not really worth the time to read. Found myself skipping over whole sections to get back to the storyline. Was disappointed at the end. If you're looking for a good Clive barker book, skip this one.

    Disappointed that iTunes doesn't have Clive Barker's best books available for download yet. The Books of Blood, In the Flesh, The Inhuman Condition, and Cabal are absolute classics. He kind of lost me as a reader when he went more towards fantasy stories. With the exception of a few like Coldheart Canyon, they just didn't do it for me. With this story, he shows he still has the ability to go to that dark place I grew to love with his early works. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I felt it was kind of short for $11.95, but a great read nonetheless.

    This is an interesting book. The narrative is well done however try as he might Clive Barker can't really get you to attach to the main character of the story. Maybe that was his plan but overall the story is such a sick and twisted menagerie of characters and events that you can't help to be curious as to what happens next. Not one of his best works but it is a somewhat entertaining read. The Hell Bound Heart is probably one of his better books.
