2002, ISBN: 0060510846

Library Binding, [EAN: 9780060510848], Joanna Cotler Books, Joanna Cotler Books, Book, [PU: Joanna Cotler Books], 2002-10-01, Joanna Cotler Books, With Abarat, Clive Barker begins an ambitious sequence of fantastic novels aimed at a young audience as well as his adult fans. There is as much sense of threat to the world here as there was in the horror novels with which he made his name. But the worst almost never happens here--and there is whimsy and charm along with a carefully judged and measured sense of the nightmarish. Young Cindy Quackenbush finds herself transported from the boredom of a Mid-Western chicken-packing town to the 25 islands of the Abarat--islands torn between the evil magician Christopher Carrion and the equally power-hungry rational capitalist Pixler. Each of the islands has a nature determined by an hour of the day--part of the pleasure of the book is seeing how Barker works this conceit out as Cindy travels from peril to peril. The book is literally a book of hours--in the Medieval sense; it's lavishly illustrated with over a hundred of Barker's striking paintings--much of its imagery was conceived of pictorially and then reinvented as story. This is a fine book--it is also a beautiful and charming object. --Roz Kaveney, 279254, Fantasy, 278471, Alternative History, 279255, Anthologies & Short Stories, 4034597031, Christian Fantasy, 4034598031, Coming of Age, 279256, Contemporary, 279257, Epic, 4034599031, Fairy Tales, 279259, Historical, 4034600031, Low Fantasy, 4034601031, Metaphysical & Visionary, 4034602031, Myths & Legends, 4034609031, Superhero, 4034610031, Sword & Sorcery, 4034612031, TV, Movie, Game Adaptations, 4034613031, Urban, 4034595031, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
