"Rich in plot twists, byzantine intrigues and hidden secrets, Imajica is a Chinese puzzle box constructed on a universal scale...Barker has an unparalleled talent for envisioning other worlds." ?? Washington Post Book World

From master storyteller Clive Barker comes an epic tale of myth, magic, and forbidden passion

Imajica is an epic beyond compare: vast in conception, obsessively detailed in execution, and apocalyptic in its resolution. At its heart lies the sensualist and master art forger, Gentle, whose life unravels when he encounters Judith Odell, whose power to influence the destinies of men is vaster than she knows, and Pie 'oh' pah, an alien assassin who comes from a hidden dimension.

That dimension is one of five in the great system called Imajica. They are worlds that are utterly unlike our own, but are ruled, peopled, and haunted by species whose lives are intricately connected with ours. As Gentle, Judith, and Pie 'oh' pah travel the Imajica, they uncover a trail of crimes and intimate betrayals, leading them to a revelation so startling that it changes reality forever.… (mere)

Phantasmagorical, as a confused dream plays out; that's what this is. Barker's "Imajica" takes a meandering and recursive trip through linked realities similar to Zelazny's Amber-Chaos multiverse with all the opium-powered hallucinations of Coleridge's Xanadu, yet still manages to pull off a mature if self-indulgent morality play. The density of the imagery, the overly fraught relationships between main characters, and sometimes-heavy-handed intimacies slow the reading pace down; this book took a great deal longer for me to read than I'd anticipated.

Altogether pretty satisfying, at the end of the day, but by its very nature this is not likely to appeal equally to all readers. ( )

An epic adventure that lags a bit in the middle but is well worth reading. ( )

Started this several times and just could not muster the strength to continue past the first 100 pages or so. The premise is intriguing, and the multi-world universe is compelling. But the characters are utterly uninteresting, unappealing, unsympathetic, empty, and two-dimensional. It's perplexing that the author gets so much right, and yet can't complete the vision. I am dumbfounded that this novel is as popular as it is. ( )

I find this book tedious. While I think the underlying story was interesting, it had about 20% too much filler for me and I started skipping pages just to get the plot to move forward. ( )

It was the pivotal teaching of Pluthero Quexos, the most celebrated dramatist of the Second Dominion, that in any fiction, no matter how ambitious its scope or profound its theme, there was only ever room for three players.
