Galilee: A Novel of the Fantastic - Clive Barker

First audio read of 2014.  I normally listen to nonfiction - I'm not sure why, but my brain seems better able to process "light" nonfiction than anything else in an audio format.  But there have been exceptions - The Magicians, The Remains of the Day, and Eifelheim were all spectacular audio fiction reads.


It's been awhile since I've read any Barker - not since Imajica about five years ago, and he's really hit or miss for me.  Plus, this is my longest audiobook attempt to date - about 24 hours! - so we shall see how it goes.  But January would be the best time to lose myself in something sprawling and fantastical.  Gotta pass these endless nights somehow.
