Description

Despite being a member of the Tabula Rasa, Godolphin frequently travels between Earth and the reconciled dominions. A creature known as Little Ease sent by Sartori invades Gentle's mind and tells him that Sartori will use him to prevent the reconciliation from occurring by any way possible.

Gentle makes it to the top of the palace where he encounters the Autarch, who reveals that Gentle is the Maestro Sartori, who led the failed effort to reconcile the dominions 200 years before. There are words spelt in block capitals which I presume were meant to be corrected before publication in Kindle. Now all that might lead the reader to think that the story is purely spiritual and inspirational and a real departure from Clive Barker‘s early splatterpunk days, but far from it. It has a rich philosophy and has deep undertones which pokes a stick at our monotheistic belief systems and the male dominance we seek in so much of our religions.this to me I naturally said, innocently, 'That would look rather wonderful with some illustrations', or something like that. For me however, no entertainment value, the imagery does nothing for me and I don't care about the characters at all. pages is pretty hefty, but the sheer scale and amount of things that actually happen in those 800 pages consumed my entire life, and made me feel as though I'd just finished reading a trilogy. I feel like this book kind of ruined my life, in that I know that nothing I ever read from here on out will ever be as good.

More characters were introduced and as I say once they entered these other Dominions that weren't Earth, and none of the Dominions were described, and Barker kept rambling about the Dominions' lore by bashing on his keyboard to come up with the name of some lord or potion or city or other, I was like. These geometric shapes relate to the author’s vision of featuring diagrams representing the characters of the Eternal Three.

It’s not only difficult for me to sum this book up in a few words, it is a very lengthy volume at 824 pages, but it is extremely difficult to do so without giving way too much. The personality reminded me of an effeminate cat and (maybe I'm crazy for thinking this) I imagined it as a black man with dreadlocks most of the time.

Sartori meanwhile reveals to Judith (who still thinks he's Gentle) that he has impregnated her when she tries to get him to see Celestine. There is no need, for example, to include a scene where the main character watches television naked and picks the crumbs of his late-night snack out of his nether regions. I still stand that this is very well written and enjoyable, it just took me SO long to finish it (it clocks in at over 1,000 pages! Though the story does have some minor flaws, both in plot and untold back story, the pace is such that a reader is soon caught up in the wonders of it and willing to forgive it a few trespasses. This award is presented "to an openly lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender individual who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for any of those communities".We are not talking about interplanetary travel but that earth exists in the Fifth dimension and the heroes can travel back and forth between the Fifth (ours), the fourth, the third and the second dimension. Despite this warning, I feel compelled to mention the denouement, because it did satisfy me on multiple levels, yet somehow it also disappointed me. Romance, heartbreak, wild flesh-defying sex, magical showdowns, grotesque enemies, haunted limbos full of creatures both benevolent and terrifying, ruthless conquerors, and a broken God all await as you travel across the dominions of Imajica.

Weaveworld, Cabal, Great and Secret Show, all the Books of Blood, I read and loved these in my teens. And the fact that it follows such a narrow and predictable structure made me all the more lazy when I could start anticipating the beats. Gentle sends his spirit across the Imajica to meet with the other Maestros joining him in the reconciliation: Tick Raw in the fourth, Scopique in the third, Athanasius in the second (who Scopique was able to convince to help them), and Chicka Jackeen near the first (who is revealed to be Lucius). Despite my aversion to reading things that generally make me shiver, like fat people having sex, or two men having sex, I continued to read this. the book is longer than the LA Yellow Pages, and even after it meanders for the first four-hundred pages it still has another four-hundred fifty pages to make up for it.Meanwhile, the Tabula Rasa meet at Roxborough Tower to discuss the recent events regarding Pie 'Oh' Pah. If you are looking for a long read with gender-bending assassins, imprisoned goddesses, magic made out of breath and spit, brutal inter-dimensional ghouls, impossible but consensual sexual contortions, oddly named characters, the profane made sacred, high body counts, sentient lakes and cities, furries and cockney accents, then look no further! Many parts I had forgotten over the years, so I was treated to some surprises, but what I did remember detracted from the wow factor that I remembered from my youth. It was in Liverpool in 1975 that he met his first partner, John Gregson, with whom he lived until 1986. Imajica will give you the sprawl and lore of Lord of the rings, the existential dread of hellraiser, and an epic love story, all wrapped up in the sort of glorious weirdness that can only come from the mind of barker.
