I definitely think that Barker has a tendency to over explain. There were many stories that I would have liked more if a little mystery was left for the reader to think about. Barker's need to wrap everything up nicely often pushed the story over into ridiculous territory because the explanation was absurd. Overall, I enjoyed most of these short stories (especially in volumes 2 &3), and am glad I read them. ( )

I've never experienced anything like the terror, dread, and disgust that I got from reading Cliver Barker's Books of Blood. Some of the stories horrified me in ways I never experienced from literature. Some terrified me deeply, some made laugh at its absurdities, some made me slightly uncomfortable, but all of them unsettled me in their own ways. A truly unique horror literary experience. ( )

Does the description "full of depraved violence and sex" sound appealing to you? Do you like gore?

Clive Barker writes incredibly well. His descriptive powers are phenomenal. Everything he relates is emblazoned on your brain as clearly as though you were seeing it on film or even in reality. His concepts are clever and unique. My rating has nothing to do with his prowess as an author. That readily deserves a five.

However, my answer to the above questions is no. Gore bores me. It neither titillates nor frightens. "American Psycho"? Found it dull AF. This is not only gory but strangely full of dicks. I don't mind a penis; I quite like them, in fact. However, I need there to be a reason for a boner beyond salaciousness. I'm very practical about cock.

If your answer to the above questions is yes, you should read this, because it is very well written. It is also absolutely not my cup of tea**.

**In my case, it is my cup of tea. I hate tea. Tried to develop a taste for it for decades, and it never worked out. ( )

Some of these stories were a bit difficult for me to read and it got a little taxing for me to finish the entire book. However all-in-all the stories were what I expected from Barker. Very dark, otherworldly and sexual. Very entertaining. A good read. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves Barker and/or horror. ( )
