I usually go by Goodreads scores and at 4.2 seemed like worth a go. And meant reading in the previous post. Think I'll soldier on. I don't quiet get the motivations of some of the characters but the writing is good even though the flow of the story is hard to understand. Understand as in it is unclear why most of the characters do what they do.It is weird, and not that good either. I have very little recollection of it, although I know I read it 25-odd years ago.
I've since tried to read abarat without success.
I guess I'm just not a Clive Barker fan.
The description of the sex scenes in the book are rather pornographic.
