stop talking about his sex. Abarat is a good creative book for children. This book is not meant to be Clive's best book but im sure it will get any child interested in reading and will get them to start reading just for fun.

That he is gay is far less of a concern than the fact that he has written a so-called young adult fantasy in which the most interesting characters are intensely evil and the supposed herione is relentlessly boring. Are we supposed to be liking the bad guys? Is that good for young adults? I don't think so. I didn't find one character who was good, honest, virtuous, and likeable. In addition, the other novels by this author are unacceptably graphic and horrifying. He shouldn't be writing for children at all with a mind that is full of darkness.

Well I have just finished reading "Abarat" and I think it was a good book. Is there a sequel? Clive Barker is gay, yes, but that shouldn't bother you. He's a great author and that's all that matters.

Well, I don't know if that's the best indication of whether someone is gay, being that it's something of a superstition. A better way to tell is that he's actually come out as gay, and talks about his husband a fair bit.
In any case, it doesn't matter. Clive Barker is awesome, regardless of his sexual orientation.

Hi Im reading Abarat right now. Its a great book and all but Im a slow reader and Im barly on Chapter 8 and my test is on the 11th. I was hoping that one of you guys can give me just a couple of sentances from C.8 on up.
ps. Clive Barker is gay. He has an earring in his right ear.

Abarat is one of the best series I've ever read! Seeing as i've only read the first one, I'm still sorta on a cliff hanger! Oh yeah, and he is gay. Not that that matters. His books still rock. ;-)

If you had taken a look at the author info on the back cover flap you would know for a fact, that yes, Clive Barker is indeed gay.
