    “'I know that many of you here have waited years for this Hour,'” Mater Motley said, using that voice that, though it was barely conversational in volume, was somehow heard everywhere. 'The waiting is over. Tomorrow there will be no dawn. Only midnight, absolute and eternal.'”

    And so begins a new chapter in the epic story of 16-year-old Candy Quackenbush and her journeys through the world of the Abarat, where every hour is an island in one eternal day, and nothing is as it seems.

    "Not at all what I was expecting"

    Story
    What would have made Abarat: Absolute Midnight better?

    If he had stayed true to the original story.


    What was most disappointing about Clive Barker’s story?

    It wasnt what I was expecting, it took us in a totally new direction. Who r these people behind the stars?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Ferrone’s performances?

    He was terrible. He mispronounced many names, & gave the characters new voices. It sounded like he forgot or maybe just ignored the 1st 2 books. Malingo & the John Brothers were the worst.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Abarat: Absolute Midnight?

    I would have handed him the entire book back.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe I am being too harsh. I have waited so long for this book & I was so disappointed.
