Review » Galilee Author Clive Barker 102 Rich and powerful the Geary dynasty has reigned over American society for decades But it is a family with dark terrible secrets For the Gearys are a family at war Their adversaries are the Barbarossas a clan whose timeless orig. I read this first when it came out so this is a reread My initial impression was of gods walking among us with a serious attempt to make old legends real I recognized DumuziTammuz right off the bat and was enchanted I had been doing a Barker marathon at the time so I was really into the meandering and directionless text He always got somewhere in the end so I my faith was strongThis second read showed me how much mythology I now know and reaffirmed my belief that Barker was a bit accomplished in the realm of practicing magick I always guessed as much back in the day but now I can point to a hell of a lot of interesting factoids I won t do that here I m sure it would bore most anyone to death Suffice to say I still think this book is one hell of a meandering rideDo you like to read about two great families with a lot of interesting history between them Check Do you love magical realism Check Do you love novels that sincerely try to give you a bit of everything trying to bring the novel truly alive with all the foibles of gods and humans I don t say this lightly I m really saying that it tries to bring together love and hate ennui and passion romance and intellect immortality and guttering flames and even potence and impotence The pieces are everywhere and Barker consistently brings them all self consciously to the fore through his narrator rising from self satisfied indolence to an interest and a restored passion for exploring lifeEven the narrator has a hard time pulling all the pieces together and honestly I think Barker was speaking to us all directly It was a truly huge novel in all it tried to accomplish It had such a huge cast even while ostensibly remaining a revenge tale couched within an epic romanceI knew what to expect so I didn t expect a polished flow or even a real thread of a plot until late It s just not what this novel was designed forIt IS designed to throw you into such a deep and exploratory life among living gods half gods and the Kennedy clan oh wait I didn t mean that that you as a reader aren t meant to do much else besides ride the boat of the novel and enjoy the lives and the sceneryAnd that s fine There s a lot to enjoyIt s really hard to put my finger on exactly what I like most about it I know I like it I think it s mostly the whole cloth the tapestry and the weave that I most appreciate The hundreds of smaller aspects only serve to bolster the feel of the whole while never striking me over the head with it s importance save for a few endgame plot worthy scenes of courseI really do love a happy ending though and I had been noticing that Barker s concurrent works were all inching toward the same conclusions A true departure from the horror I knew and love in other wordsI do recall that I pointed myself back to this and another of Barker s works as an obvious precursor to American Gods If it wasn t for things like this novel I wouldn t have been so well primed to enjoy Gaiman s novel And it was only later than that when I finally picked up The Sandman Vol 1 Preludes and Nocturnes so the whole causeeffect thing is hairy anyway I m just spouting my impressions Good impressions I might addMeandering can sometimes be a boon and in my final estimate this one pulled it off

Review » Galilee Author Clive Barker 102 Ins lie in myth whose mystical influence is felt in intense sensual exchanges of flesh and soul Now their battle is about to escalateWhen Galilee prodigal prince of the Barbarossa clan meets Rachel the young bride of the Gearys. 45 stars I really like this novel The Barbarossas are beyond fascinating and the Gearys are uite nauseating especially towards the end I like Barker s ability to weave the real and fantastical together so neatly Although the majority of the book revolves around Rachael and the Gearys it s really the Barbarossas that provide all of the color when it comes to characters They just make those super rich megalomaniacal Gearys look so damn boring I could have easily read another couple hundred pages on these two clansThis is one case where the narration didn t add to the book although it was not actually bad
