This review is from: The Rats (Paperback)
This was one of the first horror stories I ever read, and It made me a massive fan of the genre. Having just re-read 'The Rats' after many long years my opinion hasn't changed. Honestly, in spite of the dozens of horror books I have read, 'The Rats' remains one of my all time favourites. Certainly up there in my personal top five!
A tight writing style which develops into a growing sense of dread, as the threat posed by the rats grows with each subsequant attack.
Without a doubt, James Herbert deserves his acclaim as Britains finest 'master of horror.'
