Publisher's Summary

Frank Cotton's insatiable appetite for the dark pleasures of pain led him to the puzzle of Lemarchand's box, and from there, to a death only a sick-minded soul could invent. But his brother's love-crazed wife, Julia, has discovered a way to bring Frank back-though the price will be bloody and terrible . . . and there will certainly be hell to pay. This book is the basis for the blockbuster movie Hellraiser.

A Must!

The Hellbound Heart is one of the best works in Barker’s Arsenal. Barker’s performance of his work only adds to the beautiful gore found within his pages. As a fan of the film, I enjoy there being so much different from the source material. Both are allowed to live and breathe inside the same universe, while being independent enough to feel fresh with each reading, or in the case of the film, viewing, of the work. 5 stars all the way!

Clive Barker is a brilliant writer and does a great job reading his book. It is always preferable to have the authors read there own stories. If you love horror, this is a must read/listen.

I loved it, listened in one sitting, a good companion to the book. With barkers telling you can hear drama of love and lies unfurl leaving all hope lost

A must read for any horror fan

The best horror story read by Clive Barker himself. It is so much better than the films. The descriptive of the Cenobites is exquisite.
