Beyond The Words, Past
A Science Fiction / Fantasy Column
By Courtney Skelton   

By Clive Barker

Sacrament by Clive gripped me from the start. It is what seems to be a small-scale tale, yet over the course of the book, mushrooms into a bunch of directions. Every character is accounted for along the way, every dialogue was genuine and real to everyone, and the ending was worth the wait. I loved the fact that Clive created a world that did not have anything to do with and or was like anything else he has written. The one down side- and the only one- was the reoccurring use of the word din. It was totally plausible each time, yet its constant use almost had me wishing I had counted all the times it was used, so I would have a total tally at the end. Having said that, a great book with a breadth that seemed to have no bounds. Recommended.
