A book for the imagination,
This review is from: The Magic Cottage (Paperback)
This is a book that I have read many a time and each time, I have found more to thank James Herbert about.
The previous reviewer was probably expecting a more horror packed book, which the author churns out with a gifted regularity.
However, this is a book with a depth to it that can be easily overlooked on the first read. It needs to be read with an open mind, one willing to fill in the few gaps with imagination which always leads to a better story.
In my view, this book deserves the above 5 crowns and if I could, I'd give it many, many more.
To give this book only five crowns is a crime, it needs many, many more.
