Nobody True - James Herbert

Nobody True - James Herbert

The title Nobody True is a complicated set of puns on its own plot; adman Jimmy True has ... more

no body because he was off on one of his regular
astral jaunts when someone stuck him through the
heart and carved him up like meat. His rather
privileged position as an invisible observer of
his own murder investigation enables him to
discover uncomfortable truths about almost
everyone he knows--his wife, his young daughter,
his business partner--and a darker set of truths
about the serial killer whose victim he appears to
be. Jimmy has many problems with trust--his
paranoid mother and absent father have seen to
that--and at first his posthumous experiences
confirm all his worst dreads. This is a book about
learning valuable lessons and not thinking simple
versions of the truth are necessarily the most
accurate ones; it is among the most odd Herbert
horror thrillers and like several of his best
books has an attractive emotional core underneath
all the gore and nightmare. Occasional wordiness
and too much occultist waffle about dreaming,
death and soul travel do not stop this also being
intermittently one of his most gripping. --Roz

“I wasn’t there when I died” Review with images

AdvantagesA fine book from a fine British Author

DisadvantagesNone of Note

"...as James Herbert has in Nobody True. For this reason I number him amongst my favourite writers in the mystery and thriller genre with the sure knowledge that when I pick up one of his books I know I’m about to go on a dizzying journey filled with passion and heartache in fairly equal measure, Herbert really is the very best of British authors. “Birth and Death are the two noblest expressions of bravery” James True was a slip of a lad when he ..."

FIEND WITH A KNITTING NEEDLE GETS CARRIED AWAY

AdvantagesGood story, fairly horrific

DisadvantagesTwists aren't strong enough, not really pc

"...fiction, remember) At 502 pages, Nobody True is a reasonably long read although I did find the time went quickly as I got caught up in the story. It was interesting to note the way Herbert wrought significance from the title towards the end with a thoughtful reflection of those people who had apparently let the main character down. By widening the main events to draw in the bizarre circumstances surrounding his father’s marriage and the reasons ..." Read review

Nobody True! But Was it You?

AdvantagesA Great Get Your Teeth into Read.

DisadvantagesYou Will Not Be Able To Put It Down.

"Nobody True is James Herbert's 21st novel and doesn`t disappoint us with this proud selection in his masterpieces of, horror and Fictional writing. He always seems to be able to keep each and every new book fresh and new, with exciting new characters and events, usually building up into a crescendo of suspense and excitement. I have been a huge fan of Herbert's for some years now i don't think i know a book i have been disappointed with. I am ..." Read review

Nobody Worth The Time

AdvantagesIt has James Herbert's name on the cover

DisadvantagesRepetition, ponderous prose, obstructive footnotes

"...trepidation that I picked up Nobody True. And the opening line: "I wasn't there when I died." followed by the paragraph: "Really. I wasn't. And finding my body dead came as a shock. Hell, I was horrified, lost, couldn't understand what the fuck had happened." did little to inspire me. Still, I was without a novel to read, so I got on with the job at hand and have to say I struggled. Whilst I might not have enjoyed James Herbert's more recent works, ..." Read review

Whos' walking over your grave?

AdvantagesWell written, back to the old form

DisadvantagesSome may find it a bit taxing

"Take a big dollop of Fluke, a spoonful of Others, a pinch of The Dark and the tiniest drop of The Jonah, stir it up and you may well have James Herbert's new book 'Nobody True'. Or perhaps I'm being a little unfair on the whole thing, lets take a peek. Nobody True, (don't make the same mistake as I did calling it Nobody's True, sounds easier) is the newest output of Britain's greatest horror writer James Herbert. Although I'm sure that I'd call ..." Read review

Product Information for "Nobody true - James Herbert" »

Manufacturer's product description

What happens when you lose your body? Jim True knows. He has returned from an out-of-body experience to find he has been brutally murdered and his body mutilated. No one can see him, no one can hear him, no one, except his killer, knows he still exists. Freed from his body, True embarks on a quest to find his killer and discover why and how he has managed to survive. As he closes in on his murderer, True discovers that even the very people he loved and trusted have betrayed him. He meets his killer, a strange and sinister figure who can also leave his body at will. An epic and deadly battle ensues between True and a seemingly unstoppable and hideous serial killer - a man now intent on even more murders, including True's wife and child...
