    This was excellent A wonderful part 2 to The Great and Secret Show I really loved that it was a story in itself Often, it seems that authors give us a part two just to cash in on the characters we knew and loved in the first one This is definitely not the case with this book There are characters from the first one Tesla, Raul, Grillo, JoBeth, Tommy Ray, and Howie but no...

    What once separated Quiddity from our world is dangerously close to being noThe task of saving what we know from what we dream is left to a band of misfits who are in a race against time and the creatures that have already slipped through the cracks I wish I rememberedof the book that came before this one The recapped pieces in this...

    Everville, along with its predecessor The Great and Secret Show, is an all encompassing, life affirming journey through the wicked and fantastical This novel is, literally, beyond my ability to review Just read it.

    One of the first books I read outside of school After spending my summers hunting bullfrogs and watching Welcome Back Kotter on Canadian television, this book rocked my world The small town horse blinders I had been wearing since childhood were punched off by a fist forged from LSD and pornographyor something like that I had listened to Cannibal Corpse before reading this book, so I was acquainted with vile concepts This was probably one of the first outlandish and disturbing things I One of the first books I read outside of school After spending my summers hunting bullfrogs and watching Welcome Back Kotter on Canadian television, this book rocked my world The small town horse blinders I had been wearing since childhood were punched off by a fist forged from LSD and pornographyor something like that I had listened to Canni...

    I can see why some people might enjoy this book, and the writing was good enough However, I finally gave up when I realized I didn t care about any of the characters, and it was making me depressed I have better things to do with my time.

    utterly forgettable follow up to The Great Secret Show

    Barker s Second Book of the Art is a muddled disappointment but manage to keep my interest.Alternately savage, disgusting and beautiful, Everville never really takes flight It doesn t show any of the lyrical prose of its predecessor untilthan halfway through and it remains disjointed even The Grand Design is revealed in Part VI Most of the characters introduced are unappealing and the ones that return from The Great and Secret Show no longer have their previous interest level In fact, Barker s Second Book of the Art is a muddled disappointment but manage to keep my interest.Alternately savage, disgusting and beautiful, Everville never really takes flight It doesn t show any of the lyrical prose of its predecessor untilthan halfway through and it remains disjointed even The Grand Design is revealed in Part VI Most of the characters introduced are unappealing and the ones that return from The Great and Secret Show no longer have their previous i...
