    "Unreal"

    I read this 10 years ago but to hear the author bring things to life as he intended them created a whole new experience.

    "Hell Reborn!"

    Clive Barker gives his own no-nonsense on The Hellbound Heart well. With a knowing voice he leads you to the very artifact and very same story that started it all. This is the story that spawned all of those Hellraiser movies, a darkly rewarding tale of evil and destruction.

    Some my find Mr. Barker's English accent a bit distracting, but I did not. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook.
