I'm lovin' this tale. It reminds me of "A History of the Devil". Well read - but what isn't when it's Mr. Bradley - and perversely witty, it's Barker at his best. This is my first review and my first Clive Audio Book, but it's not my last...
How can a demon, no matter how minor, possibly evoke praise and admiration? Somehow Jakabok Botch manages this, in abundance. Cleverly pointing out our petty human frailties, you can't help but marvel at the insight of a demon who could fall in love within minutes or who really isn't as bad as he should be, considering his source.
Though he may tell, order or beg you several times throughout the course of the story to "burn this book", don't dare listen to him. Otherwise you'll miss out on a robust and comedic tale of ... well, I'll just let you read and find out for yourself.

It's so good it is evil.
This book pulls you in with such brillance you are not aware how deep you are, till it turns and tells you.
Only a master of story telling can do this. Only a master of the imagination who has traveled to far far worlds can come back and tell you about them so well.
Clive Barker has always been the KING of creating strange new worlds and he does it again, and better than he has for a while I think.
Mister B (Barker) is always good, but this is beyond good. It's so wonderful it's evil!
Read it! Love it! Fear it! Burn it!
(Or delete is I suppose in this digital form?)
