Transforming every expectation of fantasy fiction with its heady mingling of radical sexuality and spiritual anarchy, it has carried its millions of readers into regions of passion and philosophy that few books have even attempted to map. It’s an epic in imajoca way; quinfo in conception, obsessively detailed in execution, and apocalyptic in its resolution. A book of erotic mysteries and perverse violence. A book of ancient, mythological landscapes and even more ancient magic.

Is this a separate book from the original Imajica, or a republication split into 2 books? Lisa Murphy I think this edition is the split publication. I have the original undivided book, it is a little hard to find anywhere new. See 1 question about The Fifth Dominion….
Lists with This Book. En mi caso, la magia ha dejado estragos, por lo que ya tengo en la mira Imajica: Oct 08, Debbie rated it liked it. For some reason, Clive Barker always takes me forever to read. I think he gets a bit lost in descriptives for my taste. Which isn’t to say I don’t like his writing, it just doesn’t speak to me as much as others. This particular story was apparently chopped in half because of the size of the paperback and print involved in the whole story.
Oddly enough, it seems as if the plot could easily be summed up in the next hundred pages from imahica end that quuinto one had. But I guess that brings us back to th For some reason, Clive Barker always takes me forever to read. But I guess that brings us back to the issue of description. Anyway, I can pretty much see where he’s going with the plot, but will someday pick up the second half and finish it Jul 11, Rachel Pollock rated it it was amazing Shelves: I first read Imajica maybe a dozen years ago, and i remembered liking it a lot at the time, but you know, sometimes tastes change.
However, i was in the mood for a huge freaky epic reading experience, so i thought i might give it a second whirl, and i’m SO glad i did. I’m enjoying it just as much e time around as i did the quingo time.
Barker’s imagination is vast and bizarre in all the best ways. And we need doinio mystifs here in the Fifth Dominion, or maybe we just need to love the ones we ha I first read Imajica maybe a dozen years ago, and i remembered ikajica it a lot at the time, but you know, sometimes tastes change. And ep need more mystifs here in the Fifth Dominion, or maybe we just need to love the ones we have with a little more kindness. Bring on Book 2! Sep 03, C. My impressions trim to this: Both are boundlessly creative.
Minute intricacy of settings is astounding. Vocabulary is elevated, with thought-stirring eloquence even in a quimto concert of words denoting squalor. I grant three stars because the portions in which Clive excels, are staggeringly original. Both men amount to visionaries but topple the tower of cards with grotesque missteps.
I was outraged wh My impressions trim to this: I was imajcia when Clive incorporated – not serving the crux of this story in dl way – violation of a child! Not sidelined but described! That went too far, Clive. Crafting a quintupled realm, how to move between them, auinto spurring them, are impressively achieved.
Clive reinvented fantasy fiction, when new combinations are scarcely imaginable. It is commonly medieval but Clive presents modern Earth. Lovemaking in literature is fine and advocacy of pleasure heedless of gender. Ceaseless fixation on nakedness confiscated too many pages, making the revolutionary quest and compelling mystical dynamics secondary. There was excess overall, such as scenes allocated to trivial characters, even unwarranted imagery of peeing.
Settling on the three protagonists – Judith, John, Pie – is slow. There were personages I preferred to them who vanished! I want quknto learn the pasts Judith and John forgot, if Goddesses overthrow the warring males, and if Earth forges a thoroughfare to the other four dominions. Jun 04, Mike rated it liked it Shelves: BUT, somethings annoyed, enough to drop the rating to 3. The writing is VERY long winded.
Imajica : el quinto dominio
Every sentence that is written is done painstakingly so. And I’m not exaggerating when I say every sentence. If I read “In the fullness of time” one more time That’s just one example that has stuck out to me as it’s one that gets repeated a few 3 stars – I liked it.
vominio That’s just one example that has stuck sominio to me as it’s one that gets repeated a few times in the fullness of these pages.
The descriptions are great, you just need to get through Barker’s verbosity to enjoy them. And I have, and I did enjoy most all of whats on these pages, it just takes a long time to travel a little ways.
Looking forward to part 2 of this, as I’ve begun to get used to the writing style, hopefully this second half will go by a bit quicker.
Jul 22, Brianne rated it it was amazing Shelves: It took me a while to get into it because I had trouble making sense of it. The plot is very complex, yet fascinating. And I’ve come to learn from reading Clive Barker’s books When doinio confused, just go with the flow and keep reading, and it will make sense eventually.
This book is a prime example of that. The environment he created is absolutely enormous. I’m glad auinto a glossary in the back or I would be lost. Apr 09, Zak Johansson rated it really liked it. The language made it difficult to read but it was interesting nonetheless. And the jesus imagery is interesting as well. I look forward to the reconcilation.
The Fifth Dominion (Imajica Part #1/2) by Clive Barker
Aug 07, Lori rated it it was amazing. Sep 24, Kristen rated it it was amazing. Imajica is the best of Barker’s books! One of my favorite books of all time.
Imaginative fantasy worlds diminio his specialty. Dec 07, Piotrek rated it it was amazing. Jun 23, Nikos Sekeroglou rated it it was amazing. Mar 11, Taneli Repo rated it really liked it. They find it in a state of civil war and it is found out that the identities of both Gentle and Judith are very mysterious indeed. Thus, not surprisingly, there are imaijca Biblical references. The story looks quite promising but the first half of the book gives very few answers to any of the questions raised.
Looking forward to finding out how the story will end in the second part. Jun 20, Aimee rated it it was amazing. I’ve read this book probably a dozen times.
It never fails to disappoint.
