The astonishing new novel from bestselling author Clive Barker

Mister B. Gone marks the long-awaited return of Clive Barker, the great master of the macabre, to the classic horror story. This bone-chilling novel, in which a medieval devil speaks directly to the reader, claims to be a never-before-published demonic memoir penned in the year 1438. The sole copy was, so the story goes, created by the inventor of the printing press, Johannes Gutenberg himself. But this historic piece of writing immediately vanished without a trace.

Until now...

A demon known as Jakabok has embedded his very self inside each word of this meticulously printed tale of autobiographical terror. The reader is taunted and teased by his pleas for release from the confines of the very ink and paper that provide the vehicle for his life story. Little do they know, the depths of horror they hold in their hands. Reader beware, indeed, as Jakabok (aka Mister B.) escorts you on an unforgettable journey into the ultimate origins of good and evil.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Crystal | 6/27/2011

    " Whoa, this completely caught me off guard. This book is grotesque and yet strangely addicting at the same time. The idea is fairly original, but simultaneously trite. I think I could have enjoyed this more as an overly superstitious high school student...but it wasn't bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Kristie | 6/27/2011

    " This is a typical Clive Barker read. "Abarat" is still the best Barker book for me so far. Mister B is an interesting character. His soliloquies and contradicting nature often made me want to read the book out loud to myself and laugh at his antics. =) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 6/19/2011

    " though it was not clive barkers best, iot was not that bad either. i think those who rated this one too low are just so dumb they didn't get what the book wanted to say. :)) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracy | 6/19/2011

    " I was very underwhelmed - I expected more from Clive Barker. The concept on the dustcover was intriguing but I found the book very slow and it at no point grabbed my attention. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 5/31/2011

    " An interesting premisis. The book is telling the story from it's perspective. "

    " I couldn't get past the first chapter! it was that bad.

    " This was a great book, one of the few that I have actually found scary!!! Clive Barker is genius. I highly recommend this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 4/24/2011

    " Clive's work is, as usual, highly original. However, this one was a little flat. The story was amazing, there was just something missing in the telling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 4/23/2011

    " Mr. Barker at his finest. Hell, demons, Chaos, medieval times, what is not to love folks. Recommended for readers who enjoy Barkers works. Also for those who enjoy a good epic horror novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Oglaigh na | 4/9/2011

    " Give a demon the personal characteristics of a human and you have just done what disney did 60 years ago. Come on man,...he is a DEAMON escaped from hell ! Now granted he is a baby however that does not entitle him to break the laws of hell and go searching for his mommas teet "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shay | 4/9/2011

    " I didn't even finish it, I did try but after the intro I gave up. It was definetly a good idea, taking on the voice of the demon but after a while it was a little overdone! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sophia | 4/1/2011

    " Well, this was a disappointment. I was tempted to give it 3 stars because it's Clive Barker, but I couldn't. It's at most mediocre. "

    " My first Clive Barker book. Can't wait to read more. Literally couldn't put it down. "
