Transforming every expectation offantasy fiction with its heady mingling of radical sexuality and spiritual anarchy, it has carried its millions of readers into regions of passion and philosophy that few books have even attempted to map. It’s an epic in every way; vast in conception, obsessively detailed in execution, and apocalyptic in its resolution.

Imajica: The Reconciliation by Clive Barker
The first time I picked it up I only got to read the first volume, through absolutely no fault of my own. The first actual, full reading was a couple years later, and by that time, Clive Barker was my favorite author.
I was familiar with his horror stories and novels, and had read some of his more fantasy-oriented books, but “Imajica” truly stands on top of e I finished reading “Imajica” for the third time recently, and regretted that there had been so many years between this and my last reading.
I was familiar with his horror stories and novels, and had read some of his more fantasy-oriented books, but “Imajica” truly stands on top of everything else he’s done. His newest series, “Abarat,” offers a scope and story that’s perhaps as ambitious as “Imajica” it’s too early to tell; there are three out of five books remaining to be published in that series ; “Everville” and “The Great and Secret Show,” both excellent books, also concern other worlds being discovered by regular people on Earth.
But this is his best. As Barker states in the foreword, “Imajica” is an attempt at imajjca ideas of theology, psychology, geography, through storytelling–and this even is an understatement. The themes that Barker takes on in this book are each enough for their own novel, and yet, it never feels too long, never gets tedious, and is always exciting.
View all 4 comments. Dec 30, Sarah rated it it was ok Shelves: Review to come, although it will likely be something along the lines of “I survived”. Dec 17, Quill rated it really liked it Shelves: The Basics Gentle is a man who makes his living forging paintings and has his fun womanizing and generally doing whatever feels right at the reconciloacin.
He has no past and no real recknciliacin. Then he discovers his sometime lover, Jude, is being hunted by a hired killer. Oh yeah, reconciliafin there are other dimensions and magic and all sorts of things that blow his mind. I bought this as a duology in paperback form. So I read part one a while ago.
And I only recently fi The Basics Gentle is a man who makes his living forging paintings and has his fun womanizing and generally doing whatever feels right at the time. And I only recently finished part two. It is one long book. I did what I did anyway. I wanted to preface everything with that, lla this is going to try and be a review of the entire experience, but clearly mine was a little… extended. Reading this in two parts with time between gave me a unique perspective, I think, on the pacing of this story.
The first half felt overly long, and I found myself frustrated at times with the hiccups the characters faced. Barker likes to have his character face trials and obstacles, like any author, but in this case, many of them in the first half felt like they halted the progression of the story for too long. It made me feel like I was pushing through, whereas the second half covers so much ground that it feels kinetic and keeps you reading with an anxiety to know what happens next.
The world building here is immense, which is probably why that first half felt bogged down to me. Barker had his work cut out for him, because he clearly set out to make this journey ambitious as hell. Especially considering that this is a far cry from your typical fantasy. I see so many authors who just plunk elves and orcs into their version of Middle Earth, and this was so apart from that, but it takes a lot of work to get there.
For Barker and for us as readers. The character development is the sort you hope for in a book this long. To the point that I wonder why I doubted. So of course, they part ways. It sometimes feels like he has these dreams and wishes for characters that can never come true, because he has no control over their choices. Because why tell me one thing and then show me another? It has to be mentioned at the last that this book is gorgeously written.
What will always bring me around to Barker is his writing style. He can capture the beauty in absolutely anything. Una novela realmente excepcional y un final que se anhela durante toda esta segunda parte.
Jan 03, Sera Rivers rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I read the entire book. It was too large to put into one book, so Clive made it two May 23, C. Borrowed from a friend, I was game to accept his suggestion of a horror author I would not otherwise read.
The first novel contained revolting, needless violence and was lucky to receive three stars. A review reassured me that this story requires one-hundred pages to grasp a foothold. I persevered, as I in turn urge future readers to do! Its point at last captivates us and it is enthralling to watch the principal characters move towards it, now that we know who they are.
By rote, not only is the second portion clear and less despairing: No one treads there, fearing it is Heaven itself and that doing so might equate death.
Venturing to and from Earth requires transporters, with some risk. Trips pass, for a few seconds, through a perilous plane that approximates hell. The visually glorious message is that if the feminine of God and females of our world took charge: These two solely recall about fifteen years of their lives and only now question why. Who they are and what they are each meant to do, with the help of special family reclnciliacin friends, bring this juggernaut saga its sympathy.
I wish I could read of their third reconclliacin Jan 29, Karyn rated it really liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Clive Barker’s imagination is a thing of greatness. For the first time in recent memory I refonciliacin unable to predict where a narrative would take me and I refonciliacin the ride thoroughly. The only thing keeping this ending from 5 stars is the amount of unanswered questions bouncing in my skull: Why did Judith end up loving Sartori with no real motivation other than he said he loved her and knocked her up when she thought he was someone else?

She’d heard that from COUNTLESS men over the course of the entire book but one faker who’d tricked his way into sleeping with her says it and suddenly she’s ready to follow him to the ends of the earth? It seemed out of character–I found her very difficult to empathize with by the end, and her sudden highly annoying switch to “I don’t need a man, I’ll just hook up with one of the fish people to help raise God’s granddaughter.
Jude was so headstrong and determined before and the switch to cooing, bouncing-baby-on-lap mother seemed wrong for her. Why was the Tabula Rosa introduced if they were only going to be slaughtered like cattle and put up no real resistance or create any sort of true conflict? I was expecting something on the scale of mass genocide, not a handful of people dead in a small house in London.
And most of all, with all the talk of completing the circle and that Creation was both male and female, isn’t killing off the masculine God tipping the scales in the other direction?
Imajica: The Reconciliation
But despite these criticisms, this was a fantastic journey and I’m so happy to have finally read it. May 21, Maria rated it it was amazing Shelves: Also, I liked that all the loose ends were tied up at the end. Even if the book didn’t go into detail about everyone you at least knew what most of them got up to after the big event.
I wish I could say more. I loved this book.
