Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A kind of blasphemous version of Paradise Lost, otherworldly history repeating itself as gory farce…Barker fills this large canvas with an impressive amount of action and infernal spectacle and recaptures…some of the rollicking, berserk quality that made his early stories so distinctive.” New York Times Book Review
“John Lee’s performance will chill listeners to their marrow as he narrates in emotionless tones. Lee’s sonorous voice is perfect for the bloodcurdling magicians, demons, and supernatural creatures who hunt Harry and his friends. Lee breathes life into each character with different accents and varied interpretations. This collection of tales of the Hellraiser series is for listeners with strong hearts and a love of the horror story. Crude language is interspersed with graphic descriptions of torture and death. Listen with the lights on.” AudioFile
