    Un Barker menor

    "Demonio de libreo" resulta una lectura entretenida, pero no apasionante. Válida para ir leyendo en el transporte público y que se te pase el viaje en un suspiro, pero no deja apenas huella. Lejos de lo mejor de Clive barker.

    ¿Escalofriante? Creo que hay novelas de esas de terror infantil/juvenil mucho más escalofriantes. Aburrida, repetitiva y machacona, y encima predecible desde casi la primera página.

    ¿Escalofriante? Creo que hay novelas de esas de terror infantil/juvenil mucho más escalofriantes. Aburrida, repetitiva y machacona, y encima predecible desde casi la primera página.

    Como dice la sinopsis, trata la historia de un demonio que está atrapado dentro del libro. Cómo llego a esta situación es algo que nos cuentan casi al principio, y que en todo caso, como dije, es bastante predecible, así que la "sorpresa" final no lo es en absoluto.

    El relato alterna entre las amenazas del demonio, que nos pide que dejemos de leer y quememos el libro (lo cual se hace pesadísimo, interrupiendo el relato cada dos por tres, y no tiene ningún interés) y la narración de sus aventuras en la Tierra, que no son nada espectaculares y que tampoco aportan demasiado, salvo preparar la escena final.

    A standard novel from a un-standard author

    I adore reading Basrker's novels, and I always expect to be suprised by his creativity and ability to make up an entire world - cruel and facinating at the same tine - hidden in our common one. But this time the only thing that was particular was the "dialogue" between the devil Jacabok (in my country that's the name of a catholic printing company ... is it a coincidence ?) and the reader; but more that creating a connection with the story seems to break the rythm of the plot.
    All I can I say it that it was a nice reading, but just because it had barker's name on the front cover

    Del 2008.
    Storia assurda e prevedibile. Non fa neanche paura.
    Sembra che Baker cerchi di allungare il brodo di una storia non buona, continuando a raccomandare per pagine e pagine di bruciare il libro.

    Looking at my tags you'd probably be confused. History? Printing Technology? What Barker has always done best is take the macabre twist of his and wrap it around modern parables and musings on society. Set before and around the cradle of the printing industry, this book literally drips with spite at times. Intelligently written from the view point of a demon, Jakabob Botch (who is trapped within the very text of the book), the novels pace is tempered by the demon talking directly at you around and between his "story". Thats not to say this is Barkers best, but its certainly inventive as any "secrets" within the book, and manages what most "horror" novels do not - its at times horrific, informative, historically accurate and genuinely quite chilling.
