Demonio de libro (Exprés)

Demonio de libro (Exprés) - Clive Barker This was my first Clive Barker book. I was very enticed by the prospect of a medieval demon trapped inside a book. Sadly, it didn't live up to my expectations.

For starters, Jakabok wasn't very likeable (I can't believe the amount of pages spent on his rant about why we should stop reading the book, it was so annoying) or special in anyway, and his story was all over the place; the author sort of used the demon's disjointed narrative as a cop out to jump from one thing to another without really telling a consistent story. Also, the depiction of what hell was like was strange and seemed anachronistic to me.

The only thing I sort of liked was the love relationship between Jakabok and Quitoon but it was soon smashed and left inconclusive. Shame about that.

Interesting idea, defective performance.
