    1. Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel, From Beginning to Bookend.Ten-year-old Harvey Swick is invited to Mr. Hood’s Holiday House, a thousand-year-old dwelling that welcomes children to enjoy its rapidly changing seasons, explore its grounds filled with mythical creatures, and partake of the delicious meals prepared by the house cook, Mrs. Griffin. At first, Harvey thinks Holiday House is the best thing that’s ever happened to him, but he soon discovers not all is as [...]


    2. Sooooooooo, I mentioned that I had sworn off Mr. Clive Barker yeeeeeeeears ago- due to squeamishness- Ms. Stepheny called me on it- and said, "PLEASE PLEASEPLEASE- read THE THIEF OF ALWAYS before making your final judgement on allllllllll of his work". Okay, Stepheny, I stand corrected- not all of his work is GROSS. In fact I quite enjoyed this blood-less tale. [image error]10-year-old Harvey Swick is bored.d, bored with school. Bored with the dreary weather, and bored with his day-to-day life. [...]


    3. Edit 5: I now have a first edition thanks to a bookstore selling old books and it is in perfect condition thank you world.Edit 4: My love for this book knows no bounds because I managed to get this hard copy of the graphic novel. Signed and hand-numbered (there were only 500 of these going out).Edit 3: Did I just buy the ebook of this? Yes I did. Gotta be safe in case I lose the paperback copy. <3333“The great gray beast February had eaten Harvey Swick alive.”The most fabulous opening lin [...]


    4. Oh, you’re a horror fan? Read Clive Barker.Steph, check out Clive Barker. You’ll love him.Have you read any Barker? He’s brilliant!These are all things that were being said to me for the last few years. I took note. Then I saw Stephen King saying that Clive Barker is the future of the horror genre. Well, if I am going to listen to anyone I am going to listen to Stephen King. Everyone knows this.I took the encouragement of some of my friends and went with it. I decided to go with the Thief [...]


    5. I remember being a kid and being bored, and it is THE WORST. It wasn't just the boredom, it was the feeling of needing something but having no idea what. Awful. It will ruin your life. And that is how you become me. I don't really have much to say about this book. It's my second Barker, and vastly different than the first of his that I'd read (The Hellbound Heart). I liked this one well enough, and it's a quick read (or would have been if I didn't have this need to make new levels in Mario Maker [...]


    6. Harvey Swick is ten years old and bored out of his skull. It's that dreary month of February, Christmas is over and summer is too far in the future for a small boy to contemplate. He just wants to have some fun. Through an open window flies a man in black by the name of Rictus. His smile is all sharp teeth and is as wide as his face, but he has a glib tongue and promises Harvey all kinds of fun. Plenty of playmates, the coolest treehouse ever, and a house that is almost too good to be true await [...]


    7. Always a no spoiler/no plot detail reviewI wish I would have read this book when I was like 12 or 13, what a very powerful book this would have been to me. But, sadly I only just read it now at age 41 but since I'm still a huge lover of children's fiction (especially dark children's fiction) I still found this story to be every bit as magical and scary as it intended to be.This is my first Clive Barker book that I've finished. I started previous works (Mister B. Gone and The Great and Secret Sho [...]


    8. Great book to read on a rainy day. What I liked the most (apart from story) are the illustrations. They were really creepy, and reminded me of Neil Gaiman's Coraline, which is one of my favorite books. The story is also similar to Coraline, but it does have its twists. Really fun and fast read, and looking forward to reading more books from this author. The guy knows how to tell a good story.


    9. So, when I reviewed Coraline, I mentioned that, in terms of "Young-person-casts-off-illusions-and-outwits-a-vastly-more-powerful-otherworldly-entity-and-comes-to-appreciate-the-realities-of-life" stories, I thought this book was vastly superior. So I jumped onto Bookmooch to see if anyone had a copy. Lo and behold, a nice person in Israel was giving his copy away, so I snagged it. And I stand by my judgment.Plus, this book has one of the best opening lines I have ever read: "The great, gray beas [...]


    10. Έχετε ευχηθεί ποτέ να ήταν κάθε μέρα γιορτή; Να κάθεστε χαλαρά στο σπίτι, να παίζετε (στα παιδικά σας χρόνια) με όλα τα αγαπημένα σας παιχνίδια, να τρώγατε όλα τα αγαπημένα σας φαγητά και όλα τα σχετικά υπέροχα πράγματα που μόνο στις γιορτές σας άφηναν οι γονείς σας να κάνετε; [...]


    11. Ένα εκπληκτικό παραμύθι, για μικρούς και μεγάλους!!! Άλλοτε τρομακτικό, άλλοτε κλειστοφοβικό αλλά πάντα με μια θετική ματιά. Επηρεασμένος σαφέστατα από την Αλίκη στην χώρα των θαυμάτων ο Μπάρκερ μας δίνει ένα διαχρονικό διήγημα


    12. Creepy!Harvey is 10 and boredSoooooo boredSo when he is offered the chance of visiting a holiday house with unlimited food and presents, where it is spring, summer, autumn and winter all in one day how can he resist! [image error]BuuuttttAll is not what it seems and soon things take a turn for the sinister.This is a dark and fantastical tale that is ultimately about what it is to be human.


    13. Read SynopsisWow! This is a book that stays with you, if you let it. Harvey Swick, as normal a kid as you'll find, is trapped in paradise. The holiday House is a place where dreams come true - so long as you're willing to play by it's rules. Try to break free, and swim with the fishes.Clive Barker's prose is brilliant; I can think of no other word that clearly conveys my thoughts on The Thief of Always. From the first line-one of the best ever written, rivaled only by the opening to Gibson's Neu [...]


    14. I absolutely loved this! It's an incredible story, the kind of story for children that definitely appeals to a much wider audience than that. It's a great blend of fantasy and horror, wonderfully written. It also includes drawings here and there, which is always a wonderful thing, because Barker is an amazing artist as well as a writer. I recommend this to anyone curious about his work and not sure where to start!


    15. This is a great book by clive barker. It's about this boy who goes to this house of seasons. It's a story worth checking out and one of the first Clive Barker books I checked out that got me started on his books. I hope one day that thief of always becomes a film because it is a pretty good story.


    16. Ομολογώ ότι, μετά απ' αυτό, οι ελπίδες μου ότι μπορεί να διαβάσω κάποτε κάτι αξιόλογο του Barker αναπτερώθηκαν. Ξέρω, είμαι ιερόσυλη ή κάτι αντίστοιχο, αλλά το πρώτο και μοναδικό βιβλίο του που είχα διαβάσει, μέχρι και σήμερα, ήταν το πρώτο Abarat, το οποίο ήταν ένα όμορφα γραμμένο κ [...]


    17. Ο Clive Barker έχει μια εκπληκτική ικανότητα να μπαίνει στο μυαλό ενός μικρού παιδιού, να βλέπει τα όνειρα κ τους εφιάλτες του και να τους παρουσιάζει σε εμάς ατόφιους κάνοντας το με πολλή χάρη. Είναι ευκολοδιάβαστο και κρατάει συνεχώς το ενδιαφέρον.


    18. This was the first book that I actually picked up and wanted to read by choice. Being in middle school and forced to read what was on their criteria never amused me at all! So I really owe a thank you to Mr. Clive Barker for opening up my mind and a whole new world for me!This was my first book I read, wanted to read and enjoyed reading it from start to finish!!!3 time Re-reading: March 1-5 2018= still remains a favorite of mine. Clive Barker remain my favorite author


    19. Pitch perfect in every way, Barker really shines on this one. I could see kids reading this at age 9 without issue. Would recommend to any fans of the interstice betwen horror and fantasy or anyone looking for a good yarn.



    20. Ό,τι πρέπει για την περίοδο του Halloween. Ένα παραμύθι για τις επιθυμίες, τους φόβους, τα όνειρα, τη γενναιότητα που χρειάζεται για να αντιμετωπίσεις την πραγματικότητα.


    21. Alright, well, here I go!So, I was going along my merry way reading this book, and I found myself being drawn almost completely in. A seemingly childish story, The Thief of Always managed to be both chilling and unbearably cute. Now people were asking me when they saw me with the book in hand: "Do you like it? Why?"The characters were well fleshed out and well-thought out. I loved Harvey. Wendell could be irritating, but, hey, that was him.I loved the House. Hood House. That motherfucking monste [...]


    22. Harvey es un niño de diez años que odia los días grises, en especial el mes de febrero. Un buen día es invitado por un estrambótico personaje a visitar una casa de vacaciones, donde siempre hace buen tiempo y se puede jugar todo el día. Pero no todo es perfecto, ya que pronto descubrirá que no puede salir de este lugar.‘El ladrón de días’ (The Thief of Always, 1992), del escritor británico Clive Baker, se aleja de las historias de terror y morbo que tanto le caracterizan. En este c [...]


    23. Inače prilično volim Barkera, onaj njegov dio koji piše više fantasy, a manje horror (koji inače baš i ne volim)Jako zgodno djelce gdje mi se Barker najviše približio Gaimanu.Jedna lijepa pričica o dječjim željama, o tome kako ništa nije dobro previše željeti :), malo neobičnih čudovišta i ugodno provedeno vrijeme.Posebna draž su Barkerove originalne grafike.Preporučujem.


    24. Όταν ξεκίνησα το βιβλίο δεν περιμένα ότι θα μου άρεσε τόσο. Ο λόγος που με κέρδισε είναι γιατί με κάποιο τρόπο ένιωσα να είμαι ο ήρωας εγώωστόσο μπορώ να πω ότι οι μάγισσες του Ρόαντ Νταλ με έχουν κερδίσει μολονότι ειναι καθαρά παιδικό βιβλίο.


    25. Read this when I was a kid and waited for the movie it promised on the front cover. Never came to fruition I guess. Def needs to be reread because i don't remember much of it.



    26. A friend recommended this to me, and the very next day ANOTHER friend recommended Barker's Abarat, so it seemed like too big of a coincidence to put off reading him any longer. This was a very quick read, and you know a book is good when you lose all sense of time. I read straight through without stopping. The opening sentence, which is, perhaps, the most crucial part of any book, is definitely one of the best I've ever read, and I enjoyed how Barker kept referencing it throughout. I've said it [...]


    27. 5 glorious stars!!!This one, I feel, will be one of those books that stays with me throughout my unending pilgrimage of reading, and will always hold a place inside me, along with some other special reads.The story is wonderfully told, involving dark magic and illusion that's able to blanket reality; to create a place where children will never be bored, or shall never be left wanting for anything. Whatever they wish they may have. But this eternal happiness comes at a price, one that unknowingly [...]


    28. Fun story! Ten-year-old Harvey Swick is bored with life until he is lured by a stranger to the Holiday House. There, you can have all of your desires fulfilled. Every season happens every day, and you get to celebrate Halloween and Christmas every day. You get to eat all of your most favorite foods and just have fun all day. But there's a trade-off, and you don't find out about it until it's too late. Evil lurks in the Holiday House in the form of an unseen "vampire" thief. He's a different sort [...]
