It looks like I wrote the 666th review. How ironic.
I have read a few James Herbert books before, but nothing written in the past 20 years or so. Right away, this was a real difference in impact. Herbert seems to have learnt a lot about putting his embellishing his story, beefing it up a little, and keeping you on the edge of your seat. I was impressed.
Ash is the story of David Ash, sent to investigate strange goings-on at a secretive Scottish castle, suspected to be supernatural in cause. Almost right from the start, the story is fast paced and exciting, with a lot crammed in. Famous faces, and not so famous faces (as Herbert mixes a bit of fact in with the fiction), and of course enough questions to keep you interested. Some of the descriptions of events were really very good (I was certainly squirming at parts) and the characters were likable (well, the ones that were meant to be).
If you haven't read any recent James Herbert stories, it is definitely worth a go.
