4.0 out of 5 stars The Rats � Part 3 25 July 2005
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
The Rats was a fearsomely successful debut, so much so that even after several other novels Herbert felt compelled to go back and write a sequel, but Lair suffered from a 'seen it all before' law of diminishing returns - in true Hollywood sequel fashion the action may have been bigger but it certainly wasn't better.
Thankfully with Domain, Herbert's 3rd Rats novel, the author has come up with a new angle to work with - nuclear holocaust. The novel starts at a breathtaking pace and barely lets up - 5 nuclear bombs fall on London, and its an immediate battle for survival as the population struggles to get underground and away from the fallout. Totally unprepared, most of the inhabitants are killed, with London almost completely destroyed. The novel follows the fate of typical Herbert loner hero Culver, and government employee Dealey, who knows the location of a secret underground survival shelter but having been blinded in the nuclear blast needs Culver's help to get there. Meanwhile, the long dormant mutant rats seize their chance to emerge from hiding and start feeding on human flesh again...
The addition of the nuclear holocaust material massively expands the scope of this novel, as even without the rats the cast face diverse threats from disease, floods, fire, rabid dogs and lawless gangs who roam the wasteland of a devastated London. The destroyed capitol makes for some startling imagery, with Domain containing the best descriptive writing Herbert has yet produced. Herbert gradually brings together a varied cast, with the novel peaking in an extended mid-book action sequence when their temporary bolthole is flooded, then attacked by rats.

5.0 out of 5 stars The black rats return 28 Mar. 2009
By marky77 VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This is the third book in Herberts Rats trilogy (The Rats being first and Lair second) and this time a new twist is added to the story: a nuclear holocaust.

The first few chapters are very gripping and brilliant as the book starts out with London being hit and destroyed by 5 nuclear bombs. Few lucky survivors manage to stay alive by getting to the shelter of the London Underground before they are destroyed the the bombs and their devestating aftermath.

Once the bombs are over and all has settled, some people return to the streets or come out of hiding, only to succumb to the horrific effects of radiation poisoning as after the bombs highly radioactive nuclear ashes fall and the streets wont be safe for at least four weeks.

Culver is protected by a pratically falling building from the damage by the bombs and manages to get into a governemnt shelter - along with a blind government agent who he happened to be with at the time - in the little time they have before they radioactive ashes fall to earth.

However, our survivours are not as lucky as they think as they find themselves being brutally attacked and killed by killer black rats, who have lived underground since the events of Lair, but now that their home has bee invaded they are back with a vengeance. Now nowhere is safe Culver and the other survivours as they cannot go above ground for the radiation and are trapped with the Rats underground.

I really loved this book and didnt want it to end. Even though it's almost 500 pages it is a quick read as it's so addictive you find it very difficult to put down.

Reccomended to fans of the rats books, James Herbert, or horror in general.

The best Herbert book I have read, only '48 comes near. If you have ever wondered what it would REALLY be like to be in London through a nuclear war this book describes it brilliantly. If your a Herbert fan (especially if you liked '48 & the Rats books), you MUST read this.

5.0 out of 5 stars His best book to date! 31 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
From the very beginning, the book chilled me and carried on doing so throughout. This rounded off the Rats Trilogy very nicely and was definitely the most terrifying. What makes this book so brilliant is that it could really happen. Perhaps not the killer rats, but the nuclear war. I especially liked what date he gave it: The not too distant future...
I recommend that all readers enjoy the talents of James Herbert by reading The Rats and Lair before this book so that they can be properly hooked by his unique writing skills. I was especially disturbed to discover the first two books were set so close to where I live. He is by far the best writer in the horror genre. Stephen King is not a patch on James Herbert!

James Herbert's The Rats and Lair were simply stunning novels that for me are two of the finest books that have been wrote and changed not only the post apocalyptic and horror genres but also the way we look at and how we feel about the creatures of the stories.
This third and final(unless you count the graphic novel The City)part of Herbert's sci fi horror series has to be for me the most gripping and well written of the three novels with a true post apocalyptic feel to it as the critters have well and truly taken over London.
The third story kicks off with a spectacular chapter that depicts a nuclear strike in the heart of London and we follow people in their struggles to get safe before and after the strike.After the attack we have scenes of devastation as London is decimated as buildings,cars,houses,bridges and roads are destroyed and any still standing are rocking to their core.We then meet the main characters of the story and are stronger participants than the previous two novels with a strong willed man called Culver leading a small group of characters into a radiation dominated city and obstacles everywhere.The group he leads are government man Dealey who is the first he meets as he leads him through the city towards the hopefully safe underground,after that they meet Kate a frightened lady who becomes the love interest of Culver as well as a few others who rely on Culver to get through a dying city.But of course apart from the nuclear strikes destroying all they know and love and the atmosphere covered by radiation the other enemy is of course the mutant rat who seems to have multiplied because of the nuclear war.
