i have always been a fan of james herbert, but after struggling through his book 'moon' i wasnt feeling excited about picking up 'others'
however the feeling soon changed. the opening chapter was fantastic, and intriguing and pulled me straight into the book. although the opening chapter doesnt really continue in the same vein, i got stuck into the main story and characters and i sailed through the whole book in no time. the story of the main character and unlikely hero nicholas and his unknown fight to save his soul was brilliantly written. the story is mysterious enough to pull you in, and gives you a little more along the way to keep you hooked. but when the 'others' are introduced to the reader, the story and horror really settles into your heart and brain and the story hits full adreline right to the fantastic climax.
many herbert books are good and enjoyable, but usually by the time ive read one and started on the next i can barely remember much about the previous book ive read, which is fine because it entertains me for the duration. but this book has stuck with me for weeks now, and i believe it will worm its way into the hearts and minds of all fans of this genre.
whats more, at the time of writing this the kindle edition is only 99p. you cant buy anything for 99p as brilliant as this awesome piece of entertainment
