Description

Teenage Candy Quackenbush has always dreamed of escaping the small town where she lives with her depressed mother and abusive, alcoholic father. That escape comes unexpectedly when she meets John Mischief and becomes the keeper of a key-the key that holds all hope for the future of Abarat, a group of islands in a parallel universe. New York Times best-selling author Clive Barker brings his unique vision to children's literature and creates a fantastical world that rivals Wonderland and Narnia.

Professional reviews

"Clive Barker's first novel for teens follows Candy Quackenbush from Chickentown, Minnesota, to the Abarat, an archipelago of 25 islands--one for each hour of the day and the 25th hour, "the time out of time." Richard Ferrone has a strong, clear voice that lends credence to the story, but his narration does little to guide the listener through Barker's fantastic world. Ferrone's vocal characterizations are inconsistent, a problem in a story brimming with odd characters. But he does keep the action-packed narrative moving at a good pace, so this is a story well worth hearing. Most listeners will be ready to listen to the next installment in Barker's planned series.
