批評家のレビュー

"Barker lovingly and graphically describes the wonders of a magical world, and his vivid scenes of near captures, deaths, and a climactic sea battle that ends in Chickentown will keep readers on the edge of their seats." (Booklist)

あらすじ・解説

Candy Quackenbush's adventures in the amazing world of the Abarat are getting more strange by the hour. Christopher Carrion, the Lord of Midnight, has sent his henchman to capture her. "Why?" she wonders. What would Carrion want with a girl from Minnesota? And why is Candy beginning to feel that the world of Abarat is familiar to her? Why can she speak words of magic she doesn't even remember learning?

There is a mystery here. And Carrion, along with his fiendish grandmother, Mater Motley, suspects that whatever Candy is, she could spoil their plans to take control of the Abarat.

Now Candy's companions must race against time to save her from the clutches of Carrion, and she must solve the mystery of her past before the forces of Night and Day clash and Absolute Midnight descends upon the islands.

A final war is about to begin. And Candy is going to need to make some choices that will change her life forever.

Imaginative but predictable

This sequel picks up where the first book, Abarat, left off. I would recommend reading the first book before this one. Candy Quackenbush continues to travel without much guidance or reason to many different islands. She meets many new and interesting characters and puts her life in jeopardy on several occasions. Meanwhile, she is slowly (and I mean slowly!) discovering what purpose she really has with the Abarat. You should know this is only book two of a four part series; however, the last two books have yet to be published. Like book one, it ends with much still to be resolved. I doubt I’ll read or listen to anymore of this series. It was interesting enough, but the predictability of this story became its undoing for me. I am a big Clive Barker fan, but this is not his best work.

Great book BUT a section is out of order!

Any additional comments?

This is another great book by Barker as the follow up to the Abarat. Just note that this audio book seems to have a short part (or two) out of order! makes for disjoint listening. Lucky for me I have a hard copy of the book and was able to get the story straight. Maybe this can get fixed.

Great reading.

Richard Ferrone was outstanding with the reading; I could hear each character's voice and attitude. The audio quality changed occasionally which was a little disappointing but had little effect on the co titration of the story.

My Favorite of the Three Out So Far

As the title says, this is my favorite of the three Abarat books currently published.

The world is already introduced, so there isn't any need to start building it up. We already have an idea of the character's personalities and how they may react to certain situations. There is a good amount of action and magic being cast around and about. Characters clash and some give their lives to their cause. You'll meet new characters and fall even more in love with the ones you knew before. Clive Barker will not let you down in this fantasy adventure.

But first, I'll say what I said about the first audiobook: Richard Ferrone may not be the best narrator for this series to some. I personally really enjoy his narration. But if he is not your cup of tea, I would highly recommend reading the book. you'll also get to see the amazing illustrations from Clive Barker.

Great, but one part was wonky

I enjoy this story so much! This is a revisit for me since I read the books when I was in high school.
There is a part in the first chapter - I believe it was the first chapter - that was out of order, which is disappointing because it messes up the flow of the book. And a couple times a chapter would end and in the same breath, the next chapter would begin...so, splicing issue?
Also, for some reason - maybe it was more me than him - I couldn't get into Ferrone's voices for the characters. Old characters seemed a little different than how he did it in book one, and several new characters sounded alike... I know there are a billion new characters that we come across in the Abarat, so I can't really hold it against him, but I just thought I'd note it.
What I loved was that there was a PDF with Barker's art!! Abarat is definitely a visual read, so it was nice to get the drawings along with the narration.
It's a great book! Can't wait to listen to the third!

Almost 10/10

Love this series, but I've been reading it since 2011, and we are only on book 3....I wish Barker could give us some more writting from inside the Abarat!

Adventurous and captivating

I would recommend this book, especially after reading book 1. It brings so much more clarity and closure.

A Magical Journey

I've been an on-off fan of Clive Barker for many years, loving some of his books like Weaveworld and feeling a bit lukewarm about others like Galilee so I wasn't sure what to expect with his foray into children's literature, Arabat. What took me by surprise was the magical quality of the story and the wonderful descriptive narrative about the parallel world of Arabat. The discipline of writing for children was obviously good for Barker; the book is scary, but not gruesome horror, romantic but without the gratuitous sex scenes of many of his novels - a really good tale. Candy, the John Brothers and a host of amusing characters made the journey through Arabat an exciting and enjoyable one and when the story ended I couldn't wait to see "what happened next" so I downloaded the next instalment, Days of Magic, Nights of War, which is a great listen as well. Richard Ferrone's narration was good, not great, but the action and enchantment of the story carried you away and any quibbles about voice were forgotten in the excitement of moment. Definitely a great listen and I can't wait for the next instalment of the story.

Great story

Really enjoyed the story but I knew I would.

Not much I didn't like except a mix up of chapters in the beginning of the book, however having read the book a few years ago it did not confuse me.

Amazing Story- But bad editing...

On a Technical Note- There's something wrong with a small section of the recording... While listening to chapter 1 - it skipped to chapter 2 then returned back to chapter 1... very disconcerting but easy to get back into the story after that...

Overall an amazing story! And- even better- audible sent me a pdf containing the paintings Clive Barker printed in his hard copy versions of the Abarat- which makes this more worth it than you can imagine!

Beautiful story. Imaginative and spellbinding!! Highly recommended!!
