View Full Version : Books Clive Barker's children's books.

I've read 'The Theif Of Always' and Abarat by him and cannot wait for the sequel to Abarat. Has anyone else read these books, and if so, what do they think of them? I thought 'The Theif Of Always' was a little too gory and graphic as far as childrens books go (and I read a fair few...sometimes they're better than adult books) but I absolutely loved Abarat. Who else has views?

Well,i've read some of Clive Barker's books such us "The thief of Always" and the "Abarat"(the 1st book)-in the greek edition there are four books-,but although i enjoyed the former,i didn't like the Abarat at all.Of course,i can't have a complete opinion as i haven't read all the 4 books of Abarat.

Notice:i come from Greece and so if i've made some mistakes,please forgive

The rest of the abarat books haven't come out in England yet, but I can't wait for them to. It's a shame you hated Abarat, I absolutely loved it.
