5.0 out of 5 stars Herberts finest ever., 24 Feb 2001
This review is from: Sepulchre (Paperback)
Undoubtedly in my own opinion Herberts greatest ever book. The characters are as appealing and utterly hateable as they possibly could be. I'm a big fan of Koontz and King, but when Herbert is in this kind of form he is simply unbeatable. If you want to read your first Herbert novel this one is your only choice. Fast paced whilst also intricate, Herbert avoids the descriptive overkill that King and Koontz unfortunatly succumb to. He truly can make characters absolutely terrifying and utterly deplorable, and keeps the average read time of his book to 2 days. This being mainly due to the fact that you can read his books for long long periods, without tiring or becoming disinterested. If you like your horror sick and scary but with a vengeful ending this book is a must.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read, 24 Feb 2001
This review is from: The Dark (Paperback)
The book itself is very enjoyable if 100 pages too long. The story is typical Herbert, cliched characters, lots of gore and a psychic investigator, or sceptic turned beleiver of some description. It is very easy to read, and very fast paced, one of Herberts few advantages over his horror novelist peers. The book starts fast but builds up to the crescendo like finish about 100 pages before the end, and then just seems to maybe drag on a little. But if you are a first time Herbert reader i would definately recommend it, either this or his vastly underrated and under-read sepulchre.
