Mister B. Gone | Clive Barker

A medieval devil speaks directly to the reader, his tone murderous one moment, seductive the next, in a memoir allegedly penned in the year 1438. The demon has embedded himself in the very words of this tale of terror, turning the book itself into a dange

I can't say that I'd really recommend this book but for someone who doesn't mind the narrating style it would be a fun read.

CindyMyLifeIsLit I think I‘ll pass. My Goodreads‘ friends pretty universally rated it one star. (edited) 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @CindyMyLifeIsLit yeah it was not one of his best works at all. Which is really sad because I love Clive Barker's books ☹️ 11mo
Birdsong28 Loved this!! I read it when I was at uni in my room on my own and I was constantly looking over my shoulder whilst reading it. 📚📖 11mo
BookwormAHN I didn't like this one either. I feel that it was made for more of a teen audience and I was to old for it. 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @BookwormAHN maybe that's what was wrong with it is I'm just too old for that kind of thing. 11mo

The novel tells the story of Jakabok Botch, demon spawn from the Ninth Circle of Hell, and how he came to this earth to wind up in the pages of this very book, which he urges the reader to burn. The conceit is interesting but does get redundant at times. There are some great ideas and a couple of creepy moments, but it did not quite come together.

Not one of his best for sure. The narrator of the book is also the main character and he continuously breaks the reality of the book and tries to make it seem like the book is real to the reader. It comes off as rather annoying in the manner in which he does this. Plus it breaks from the story and in my opinion takes away from the story itself. Would have been more entertaining to read if not for that.

Puredragonstar I‘m really upset with Clive Barker have you read his Aberat series? It‘s amazing but he hasn‘t finished it and I think he never is going to. 😫 2y
TheReadingMermaid @Puredragonstar no I haven't gotten to that series yet. And last I heard, he wasn't doing very well health wise. That series may never be finished 😢 2y
Puredragonstar Oh nooooooooo!!!!! Maybe it‘s a good idea then to stay clear if there won‘t be an ending. I hope he gets better! 🤧 2y

Reggie @Puredragonstar I used to listen to The Nerdist Podcast and he actual gives an interview right before he goes to the dentist and goes into what I think is toxic shock. Where a grouped piece of bacteria was loosened and it entered his bloodstream and put him into a coma. And while he was in the coma he had a couple of strokes. He‘s alive and what is sad is that he gives an interview afterward saying he had the craziest dream and he didn‘t know 👇🏼 2y
Reggie It but the dream he describes is from one of his books. 2y
Puredragonstar @Reggie I had no idea! Poor man I‘ve been so upset at him for so long, I feel bad now. I hope he has a speedy recovery. 2y

I present Clive Barkers playfully dark and demonic tale about the power of printed media, Mr B Gone. Barkers attempt at dark (very dark) humour and farce fell flat for me a lot in this book. Though I can see he was trying to break genre walls, it missed more often than it hit

A medieval demon tells you about his life, sort of, while begging you to destroy the book. If you don't mind the gimmick, gory threats and events, it's certainly an interesting read for a horror fan
