Publisher's Summary

Frank Cotton's insatiable appetite for the dark pleasures of pain led him to the puzzle of Lemarchand's box, and from there, to a death only a sick-minded soul could invent. But his brother's love-crazed wife, Julia, has discovered a way to bring Frank back-though the price will be bloody and terrible . . . and there will certainly be hell to pay. This book is the basis for the blockbuster movie Hellraiser.

©2009 Clive Barker (P)2013 David N. Wilson

    "Perfect"

    Clive Barker is a brilliant writer and does a great job reading his book. It is always preferable to have the authors read there own stories. If you love horror, this is a must read/listen.

    Story
    "It is a must for all Clive Barker's fans!"

    I loved the fact that Clive Barker himself narrated this classic storybof his. Clive's voice, suprisingly soothing and delicate can at moments become really scarry while he reads the villain's lines. He read it so well as if he were a professional actor. It was an experience really worth having.

    Story
    "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.

    I loved it, listened in one sitting, a good companion to the book. With barkers telling you can hear drama of love and lies unfurl leaving all hope lost

    "A must read for any horror fan"

    The best horror story read by Clive Barker himself. It is so much better than the films. The descriptive of the Cenobites is exquisite.
