"Gotta Love James Herbert"
As a long time fan of the horror genre this is a book is a real pleasure for me. I was a bit worried after reading the negative reviews, but its classic British horror and its slightly rambling best.
Steven Pacey is as good as ever and the book trots along nicely, it takes a while to get going, but the journey never gets boring.
I like it, its a fun horror novel by a master of his craft and worth a credit.
a great book, and very cleverly writen as only james can.
realy gets your heart going at times and quite scary
"Ash James Herbert"
This book had mixed reviews so i was not sure whether to purchase it,but i am so glad i did.
What a great story you almost think its true or it makes you think what if?
The narrator makes it too,specially when he does the Scottish accent,a must if you love James Herbert then you will love this,scary in places and sad too.
"Fantastic Mr Herbert and Mr Pacey."
I started reading my Fathers old Herbert books when I was a kid, although I did read quite a few back then and always really loved his super spine chilling and somewhat mystic writing style it seems as I got older I noticed less of his works and forgot how bloody good he really is (shame on me!!)
Well, after listening to then reading Ash I can honestly say this man can really write a story and Mr Pacey can really tell the tale. I would love to have listed to the book that introduces Ash as he is the kind of guy you would love to have a drink with!! This fact alone makes you feel real emotion for his character and leads you to want to know more and more about him and his "gift".
I promise that you will feel that it is more than worth a credit, even if horror and paranormal stuff is not your thing there is so much history and some very thought provoking ideas in this well weaved book that, I believe you will be more than happy with your buy!! x
"Not Herberts scariest"
Overall I liked the story, not Herberts usual chiller, by far not his best book but i enjoyed it all the same. I've read all his books and this was the first one that I listened too and liked Steven Pacey's narration.
Its like everything you cant keep all the people happy all the time.
