Publisher's Summary

Will Rabjohns, perhaps the most famous wildlife photographer in the world, has made his reputation chronicling the fates of endangered species. But after a terrible accident, Will is left in a coma. And in its depths, he revisits the wildernesses of his youth and relives his life with a mysterious couple who have influenced his life as an artist and a man.

When Will awakens, he sets out on a journey of self-discovery - one where he will penetrate the ultimate mystery and finally unlock the secret of his destiny.

Soaring, provocative and passionate, Sacrament is a masterwork from the pen of one of today's most acclaimed authors.

    Story
    "Great Adventure, and what an ending.."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to certain friends, but not everybody. There are some very provocative sexual parts including pedophilia (30yr-old-woman and 12yr-old-boy) and the main character is homosexual and lives in San Francisco, which is a large part of the story. If that kind of stuff won't bother you, I recommend you get this book. It's nothing THAT bad.

    Story
    "Love Clive"

    As always a heady mix of horror + wonder + sensuality + repulsion, Ive read many of his books long ago, but hadn't caught this one yet. I think ill be revisiting the rest!

    Only thing- narrator was great, but his American accents esp. the southern were tough to listen to! Thankfully those characters werent main stage.

    Living and dying we fuel the fire.

    Story
    "Too strange for my taste"
    Any additional comments?

    Sacrament is a strange book. I just couldn't connect with the characters. In actuality, I couldn't even finish the book. I did give it a good 3 hours and then I was done. As I didn't finish the book, I can not recommend this to anyone.

    I really enjoy Mr. MacDonnell's narration and this book WILL NOT put me off from listening to another one of his books. Mr. MacDonnell did the best he could with this story.

    Story
    "Typical Barker"
    Would you listen to Sacrament again? Why?

    Yeah, but not anytime soon. The story's pacing was slow in places, between the action, but held my attention. I did finish the book and did not find myself getting bored or using it to fall asleep. Decent mish-mash of normal life and paranormal/horror.


    What other book might you compare Sacrament to and why?

    Take your pick of Stephen King...


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The reader's voice at first sounded to me like one of the robot voices. After a time it grew on me and was passable. At times the female voices all sounded the same.


    Any additional comments?

    Main character is gay, this may affect how some readers approach this book. As is typical with Barker, sex is a part of the story, but there is nothing overly explicit. Others may be put off by the almost-sex scene between one of the antagonists and a minor.

    Story
    "A few chapters in and I am done with this book"
    What disappointed you about Sacrament?

    When I got to the part of the adult teaching a child how to burn moths and watching them struggle. And a woman having a child lick her breasts. I am done. I really don't know what this book has to offer later on but I will never find out. I don't have the stomach to sift through the depravity to find out.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Chris MacDonnell’s performances?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    It was the wrong reader for this book. While he was made for the english accents he couldn't begin to cope with the southern accents.
