This book was amazing! I honestly hold my hands up to the fact I've never personally fully read one of Clive Barker's written works. I reached half way with book's of blood and gave up So when I picked this up on my libraries, digital book section I wasn't expecting much.
Oh, How wrong I was....
It's a Dark, dark masochistic piece of work. And fully shows the beautiful, disturbing mind of Clive Barker. The Hellbound heart pulls you in and keeps you hooked for hours. It's everything a horror book fan could want and more It really makes me wonder where on earth he came up with the Cenobite's and the Lemarchand's box.? He's a genius! and I've fallen in love with his writing style. So much so that I brought the scarlet gospels That I really hope will match up to the Hellbound heart.
I saw the movie way before I read the book and I have to say I like both! The only downside is that I wasn't too sure of kirsty's relationship to Rory in the book the way I read it was she was a friend that had a crush on Rory Cotten? But in the film she's his daughter? that confused me.
If you haven't read this book I highly recommend it. it should be on every horror fans book case!
