Abarat Clive Barker read online review & book description:

Clive Barker, author of The Thief of Always, delivers an epic battle filled with fantasy and adventure that readers won't want to put down!

A journey beyond imagination is about to unfold...

It begins in Chickentown, USA. There lives Candy Quackenbush, her heart bursting for some clue as to what her future might hold.

When the answer comes, it’s not one she expects.

Welcome to the Abarat, a vast archipelago where every island is a different hour of the day. Candy has a place in this extraordinary land: She is here to help save the Abarat from the dark forces that are stirring at its heart—forces older than Time itself, and more evil than anything Candy has ever encountered. She’s a strange heroine, she knows. But this is a strange world.

And in the Abarat, all things are possible.

Don't miss this first book in Clive Barker's New York Times bestselling Abarat series.

    This book is amazing, but do not buy this edition. One of the most incredible parts of this novel are its illustrations, painted by Clive Barker himself, that are completely missing from this edition. DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!

    This book inspired me to believe in magic and in myself. It made me realize that I should like my abnormality. I want to be a director, and one day I'll make a movie based on this book.

    One of my favorite books, full of the whimsical and the bizarre. Anyone who ever dreamed of 'something more' may find a kindred spirit in Candy, no matter your age. The other characters are unique to say the least but it isn't as nonsensical as some of the more abstract fantasy stories, easier to absorb casually. Enjoy, friends...
