Book Description

10 May 2012

The nightmare begins before you sleep . . .

He had fled from the terrors of his past, finding refuge in the quietness of the island. And for a time he lived in peace. Until the 'sightings' began, visions of horror seeping into his mind like poisonous tendrils, violent acts that were hideously macabre, the thoughts becoming intense.

He witnessed the grotesque acts of another thing, a thing that glorified in murder and mutilation, a monster that soon became aware of the observer within its own mind. And relished contact. A creature that would eventually come to the island to seek him out . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of Herbert book 29 Mar 2009
By marky77 VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Having previously read books such as "The Fog", "The Rats" and "The Dark" by Herbert, I found this book to be very different from the type of storie he has written in the past. The other books focuses on gore, violence and mass-destruction, whereas Moon tended to be more syspence-and-mystery type horror.

Jonathan Childes is a physic who helps the police investigate matters such as child murder. When he is called to an island to investigate strange goings on he witnesses a series of brutal murders, and shares a frightening psychic connection to the killer.

Good story when kept me gripped and had a good ending.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 16 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback
I have read several of James Herbert's books in the past and have always been entertained, but I'm sorry to say that Moon really falls short on everything. The dialogue is cringeworthingly unnatural, the characters really quite flat and uninteresting, and the plot predictable, simplistic, and frankly a little bit boring. There are one or two sections that DID grip me (though I'll keep them to myself to avoid spoiling anyone) but as a whole I was very unimpressed. I wanted to give Moon 3 stars, but couldn't bring myself to give a slightly below average book a slightly above average score.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read - classic James Herbert 24 Jun 2012
By ElaineG TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was quite surprised to find I had not read this book, I had avoided reading it for a number of years assuming I had already done so, so had a nice surprise. The book itself is classic James Herbert - in this case, the hero Jon Childe is living and working on an un-named, assumed Channel Island to escape from the rat race after events a few years previously, when he was involved, due to his psychic powers, in helping police catch a particularly gruesome serial killer. Life since then has trundled along nicely until the visions start again ...

Not a particularly unique storyline but James Herbert is a skilled storyteller and doesn't fail the reader here, the plot is engaging and the story moves along at a nice, suspense filled pace to the climax - you keep reading because you just have to know what happens next. The characters were realistic and well rounded, with the exception of Amy's father who did tend to come across as the stereotypical over protective father. The love angle between Jon and Amy was pleasant reading and provided a nice contrast to the more sinister happenings, given them more impact when they did appear (I don't like a shock a page, I like a bit of normal real life in between gruesome gory goings on)

Only a couple of things didn't sit right with me, there were two major parts of the story - including the surprise twist at the end which, although well written, lost their impact slightly purely because James Herbert, in later novels, used the same basic ideas again which just doesn't quite sit right when you are reading it in this day and age, especially for the twist at the end which I believe should be unimagineable and unique every time. In 1985, of course, it would have had more impact as being more original and that is how I have tried to view it here.

On the whole, however, it does seem to have stood the test of time, and is well worth reading, it will draw you in and keep you interested to the very end.

Jon escapes to a quite Island off the coast of the uk, hoping to escape the horrors in his mind.
Jon is psychically linked to a serial killer and he witnesses his horrific crimes. The police don't believe him, believing his knowledge of the crimes make him their prime suspect.
Suspenseful, chilling and scary as hell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab book 18 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have not yet read a book by James Herbert that I haven't enjoyed, he's the best.

Would recommend this book to anyone that loves a well written story, supernatural or horror. James Herbert always does his homework well and the locations and facts are like always spot on. If you have a good imagination you can picture the locations and the events as you read.
