Thrills, Spills and Bone Chilling Action

AdvantagesTense, action packed, thought provoking, imaginative, fascinating absobing read.

DisadvantagesLeft me wanting more.

"...the story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading 48. It is well written and the pace fast enough for me not to want to put the book down. I read it in four late night sessions and only that many because I was too tired to stay awake. It isn’t a horror book in the same sense of some of his previous novels, The Lair, The Rats and The Fog but it is horrifically fascinating because you know that it isn’t so far fetched and that some time in the ..."

'48 - 28 Days Later in WWII

AdvantagesIncrdibly easy to read, and less supernatural than his other books

DisadvantagesDisturbing scenarios... what he does best!

"I hope to do this James Herbert review more justicve than I did his last! I encountered this book in the none-to-glamorous venue of my local Post Office. Seeing that it was only £2.95, I thought, why not? I had enjoyed the last Herbert book I had read, and I had heard elsewhere that he had received good reviews for some of his other books, which I am yet to read. '48 is based three years after the end of World War II, but it didn't end in ..." Read review

A horror novel by James Herbert - if WWII had ended differently

AdvantagesIntriguing storyline, well-written and engaging

DisadvantagesSome characters could have done with some more development

"This review is of the military horror novel "'48" by James Herbert, first published in 1996. Without giving away too much of the plot itself, the basic essence of the book is about a London where the allies didn't win the war. Instead the Germans were able to send V2 missiles to attack the city with a deadly disease, which only those with the AB blood group were able to survive. Although most of the city's population had been killed as they were ..." Read review

'48 Fails To Launch

Advantagesaction, adventure, description

Disadvantagesshallow, two dimensional characters, unoriginal, confusing at times

"I was looking for something to read, anything really, it being the summer holidays there's not a lot to do, and so I stumbled across James Herbert's '48 at my local market book store; a snip at 95p. I picked it up and examined the cover. The first thing I noticed was that the author's name was marginally larger than the title of the book indicating that this author had written several well respected books before this one. Upon further research Herbert ..." Read review

Product Information for "48 - James Herbert" »

Manufacturer's product description

The unmissable new action-thriller from one of the biggest names in British fiction -- the No 1 bestselling author of The Ghosts of Sleath, Haunted, The Magic Cottage and The Rats. As millions of readers around the world will testify, James Herbert's ability to shock and enthral is matchless. Now, in '48, he has surpassed his own remarkable achievements to create an electrifying new novel of pure heart-stopping action and invention that will take readers to new levels of terror and excitement. In 1945, Hitler unleashes the Blood Death on Britain as his final act of vengeance. Hoke, an American pilot and one of a tiny minority with a rare blood group unaffected by the deadly disease, has survived alone among the debris and the dead of London for three years. Now, in 1948, a slow-dying group of Fascist Blackshirts believe their only hope is a transfusion of blood from one of Hoke's kind. Ever more desperate as their deaths approach, they're after his blood.
