    I finished reading "Imajica" for the third time recently, and regretted that there had been so many years between this and my last reading.The first time I picked it up I only got to read the first volume, through absolutely no fault of my own. The first actual, full reading was a couple years later, and by that time, Clive Barker was my favorite author. I was familiar with his horror stories and novels, and had read some of his more fantasy-oriented books, but "Imajica" truly stands on top of e [...]

    The BasicsGentle is a man who makes his living forging paintings and has his fun womanizing and generally doing whatever feels right at the time. He has no past and no real direction. Then he discovers his sometime lover, Jude, is being hunted by a hired killer. Oh yeah, and there are other dimensions and magic and all sorts of things that blow his mind.My ThoughtsSo here’s my story with Imajica. I bought this as a duology in paperback form. So I read part one a while ago. And I only recently [...]

    Una novela realmente excepcional y un final que se anhela durante toda esta segunda parte. Un desarrollo de los personajes que hace imposible no involucrarse con ellos y una evolución de la historia en que cada pasaje, por más breve que sea, tiene un sentido en la obra total. Una prosa exquisita y contundente en un mundo imaginario que no dejará indiferente a ningún lector.5 estrellas al igual que Imajica: el quinto dominio.

    I read the entire book. It was too large to put into one book, so Clive made it twoough it is just one book split in two. of my favorite books ever! i do not know why it has not been made into a movie yet!!!

    I paused “Imajica” for two years and it feels good to finish it! Borrowed from a friend, I was game to accept his suggestion of a horror author I would not otherwise read. The first novel contained revolting, needless violence and was lucky to receive three stars. That half, called “The Fifth Dominion”, was bleak and dirty. A review reassured me that this story requires one-hundred pages to grasp a foothold. I persevered, as I in turn urge future readers to do! This second part, called [...]

    Clive Barker's imagination is a thing of greatness. For the first time in recent memory I was unable to predict where a narrative would take me and I enjoyed the ride thoroughly.The only thing keeping this ending from 5 stars is the amount of unanswered questions bouncing in my skull: Why did Judith end up loving Sartori with no real motivation other than he said he loved her (and knocked her up when she thought he was someone else)? She'd heard that from COUNTLESS men over the course of the ent [...]

    Excellent Book. I loved it. Also, I liked that all the loose ends were tied up at the end. Even if the book didn't go into detail about everyone you at least knew what most of them got up to after the big event. I wish I could say more. I loved this book. It was magical.

    I think dividing Imajica into two books was probably a really excellent idea, but it also has made the structural flaws in the book much more clear. In the first volume, I found myself buoyed along for the ride by the rich madness of the world and the characters, and the towering, lush ambition of the concept. This second volume pretty quickly became a hard slog--lots of meandery drivel, some of the best characters in the first bit killed off or otherwise incapacitated/withdrawn from the story a [...]

    The conclusion to part 1 of the book. I knew it would be hard to wrap the story up as it is truly on a HUGE scale. Barker did a good job getting all the threads and plots to come to a point. I was a little disappointed by the ending and the way some of the plot works out but I can't complain too much. The themese are great still and it's 'worth the shoe leather' as barker puts it to see these characters through the end. I was very happy to have read the whole book and I'd place it highly in my l [...]

    I read Imajica as one book before it had been divided into two and fell in love with Clive's storytelling all over again. Clive Barker is by far my most favorite author. His writing style is eloquent and seductive, his words pulled me into the story. His characters are rich and come to life off the page. I recommend you read both books back to back in order to maintain the story structure and rhythm. This book is rich and bold and will have you in its grip. I was devoured as I read and it was be [...]

    FINALLY finished with this. I have to point out that Clive Barker is a good writer and that Imajica might deserve more stars.For me however, no entertainment value, the imagery does nothing for me and I don't care about the characters at all. Ot took me two hours to read the last 20 pages simply because everything else seemed more interesting at the time. Will now have to go back and rerate part 1 from 3 to 2 stars.

    (This review is for the whole ofImajica , since it really is a single story.)I liked this book tremendously. It has a very unusual take on the messiah story, and many likable characters. The language is absolutely inspired in places. It does sprawl a lot, which counts against it, but I didn't mind too much.

    A bloated and tiresome read. It was a chore to finish. Though lingering questions from the first section were answered, the answers, the dialogue, and the narrative in general are unsatisfying. The writing is hurried and pedestrian at its best. Let us not mention the larger questions of spiritually and their supposed implications the book meekly presents. Overall, a poor book with poor writing.

    Very good book! I was very pleasently surprised by how much I enjoyed the whole story. Very interesting and creative. The author has a really great imagination and makes person drawn into the plot. In this, second, book some parts were maybe too long and pointless so that´s the only reason I didn´t give it 5 stars.

    This book is deep and imaginative beyond anything I'm capable of. Clive Barker creates such a rich mythology here, all while touching upon themes of religion and gender roles, and he manages to make it extremely passionate and sexy at the same time. A great read but it is one that you must slowly digest, one word at a time.

    Not particularly great; not particularly horrible. The book never seemed to end and the continued over use of sex leaves a dry taste in your mouth. At the same time, there is enough substance and attachment to the character that you do not but the book back on the shelf.

    the first part of this was just okay .e 2nd part got better but then the ending lost me. i would have liked this in 7th grade

    Favorite QuotesPerhaps sunlight had always been luminous, and doorways signs of greater passage than that of one room to another. But she’d not noticed it until now.

    2nd in the series. I have the omnibus edition, so see my review of the first book. In a word, Brilliant.

    Just a continuation from "The Fifth Dominion", and sadly, the end of the Imajica series. I wanted this book to never end. You'll love it, I promise.

    Wow!! such an fantastic read, I'm a big fan of Barker's Weaveworld but this was even better, compelling characters woven in to a stunning plot. Excellent!!
