You hold in your hands not a book at all, but a terrifying embodiment of purest evil. Can you feel the electric tingle in your fingers as you are absorbed by the demon Jakabok's tale of his unintentional ascent from the depths of the Inferno? Do you sense the cold dread worming its way into your bloodstream, your sinews, the marrow of your bones as you read more deeply into his earthly education and unspeakable acts? The filth you now grasp has been waiting patiently for you for nearly six hundred years. And now, before you are completely in its thrall, you would do well to follow the foul creature's admonition and destroy this abomination of ink and paper before you turn a single leaf and are lost forever.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting Interesting read, you will constantly find yourself wondering if he will change and be good. The ending was a little flat but still a good read either way. The beginning was certainly different from usual and interesting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting Perspective Certainly a nice twist on narrative, but falls a little flat -- especially four-fifths of the way through. Still, fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable I am not a huge reader and I found this to be a very entertaining book for myself. If you do not like to read and are loooking to get into reading, its worth a shot. Entertaining, not scary (which was why I didnt give it 5 stars for Mr. Barker), and is a fun read.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am so disappointed After waiting for what seemed like forever for Barker to publish something new, I was excited to pick this up. At first the book asking to be burned and not read was an interesting literary ploy. But after the tenth time I was annoyed and begining to wonder how this ever got past his editors. It seems that a pretty good short story was filled with repetitive drivel to make it novel length. Now concenetrate Mr. Barker and finish Abarat!
