Review of "Nobody true - James Herbert"
I love being lazy!!!
This is a Shaun Hutson type gruesome horror.It starts off quite slow and boring... like a crime novel - trying to solve the mystery behind a murder. The unusual thing is that the detective is the murdered victim!
Half-way through, the book it gets really twisted and has a very original storyline - involving possesion of dead bodies!It is a bit like watching a horror movie. You follow the main character, deceased, who sees people getting killed but he can't do anything about it... just how you scream at characters in a horror movie "don't answer the front door" etc, you will scream the same thing at people in the book! It is compelling... you constantly want to know what is going to happen next.
You may also, inadvertently, become attached to the murderer and sympathise with him/her in the end - at least I did! The mystery behind the killers reasoning is quite sad and tear-jerking!It is an unusual type of story for James Herbert... but be warned that it is quite disturbing and gory in parts.
I can't imagine how he came up with the idea for this! Unless it was actually based on a true story?
