Home James Herbert Nobody True. I’d spend most of my free time sketching, even creating my own comic books – graphic novels, as they’re grandly called nowadays – writing my own adventures to go with the action frames. Some of those comics were not so bad, unless my memory is gilding them a little; I’ll never know anyway, because Momma Dearest threw away the big cardboard box I’d kept them in, along with the few paintings I’d done and short stories I’d written, when we downgraded and moved to a poky flat in a less reputable part.

JAMES HERBERT is Britians's number one bestselling author of horror fiction. He has held this position ever since the publication of his first novel, and has grown to become one of Britain's greatest popular novelists. Nobody True is one of his most recent, and like most Herbert novels, it's a pleasure to read. Typically when you read a book narrated in the first person, you have a reasonable assurance that, whatever else happens, the narrator will survive.

Nobody True fascinating take on OOB experiences. This book was different.

But something was rising from it. Moker’s black soul, it was like the darkest shadow among other shadows hem. Their fading images were fearful and some seemed to shrink before the rising darkness. Their alarm was contagious and I took a step backwards myself, reluctant to be close to the thing on the floor. The atmosphere became full of weight, full of foreboding, and there was a pre-thunderstorm charge in the air.

Author: James Herbert. James True was not there when he died. He’d returned from one of those out-of-body experiences, the kind where you feel your spirit has left your body, but it isn’t really a dream, to find he’s been murdered, mutilated. The killer left nothing for him to go back to.

James John Herbert, OBE (8 April 1943 – 20 March 2013) was an English horror writer. A full-time writer, he also designed his own book covers and publicity. Born in London, Herbert was the son of Herbert Herbert, a stall-holder at London's Brick Lane Market.

James True was not there when he died. He returned from an out-of-body.

One of the most popular books about horror would be Stephen King's Danse Macabre. Over the years, I've read it a couple of times and have been inspired by it to try out some authors. One of those writers was James Herbert, and now I've read a dozen or so of his books. Nobody True is one of his most recent, and like most Herbert novels, it's a pleasure to read.

Typically when you read a book narrated in the first person, you have a reasonable assurance that, whatever else happens, the narrator will survive. Not so here: from the get-go, James True is dead, a ghost relating the story of his life and after-life. Actually, "ghost" might not be the right word: at the time of his murder, True was having an out-of-body experience, something he'd done on several occasions in the past. The only difference this time is that he had no living body to return to.

True doesn't even know who killed him. The obvious suspect - according to the police - is a serial killer, a malevolent person who may have the ability to sense True's presence. True has his own suspicion: his business partner Oliver, who he'd had a major argument with just prior to his death. Some invisible snooping will do nothing to lessen True's suspicions. Yet even if this is the case, what can he do? True is invisible and silent to the living (except, maybe, the serial killer); he is even having trouble learning the rules of his new existence.

Nobody True may not have the most original story (even True at one point notes a similarity in his plight to the one in the movie Ghost), but Herbert is an accomplished enough writer to bring new life to the idea. As a novel of supernatural suspense, this works well, with a likable main character, a horrific villain and some nice plotting.

This is an intriguing chiller thriller by Great Britain's master of horror and the supernatural. Written as a first person narrative by the protagonist, James True, a successful graphic artist with his own business, the reader discovers that for years James has been capable of having out-of-body experiences. He is able to project his essence, leaving his body behind, as he wanders around totally unfettered by physical constraints. Unfortunately, on his last such foray, he returns to his body only to discover that he had been brutally murdered and mutilated while he was out-of-body.

At first, the police believe his murder to be the work of a serial killer, and, despite his obvious limitations, James sets out hell-bent to find his murderer. What he finds, however, is betrayal, heartbreak, and fear, as he discovers things about his wife, his beloved daughter, and his business partner that he never knew. He also meets the serial killer, a decidedly creepy character that will have some surprises in store for the reader. Just when the reader has it all figured out, the author pulls a rabbit out of the hat.

Peppered with wry, macabre humor, the plot is so inventive that the reader cannot help but keep turning the pages of this book, despite its falling somewhat short in terms of character development. It is an entertaining, quick read.

I am a fan of James Herbert and he did not disappoint me on this one. It is a good example of an imagination
running wild.

Herbert has given me some of my best experiences in this genre over the years, but, this is painful. Oh so repetitive and painful to read. Every page turned in desperation for a conclusion to this rambling hit and mainly miss novel. As a short story it probably worked, but James please, reminding the reader every other chapter that the central character was murdered and constant repetition of every movement using Dickensian style chapters to create a sense of feeling ultimately dampens the will of the most ardent page turner.
Apologies, but pick something else from his back catalogue, a truly shocking, meandering read. If frustration and boredom has a taste, it's nobody true.

This is one of Herbert's most memorable books and probably in my top 5 of his stories.Creepy stuff in places but a gripping piece of fiction with an interesting subject matter. Highly recommended.

Good book, fun to read. Nothing really new here, but the author makes the most of his material. His characters are believable and the story plot flows.

Extremely interesting, and a twist Shyamalan wishes he could have thought up. At times a little long a tedious, but the plot always picked up. Recommended!
This story I borrowed from the library as an audio and I listened
to this mystery with HORROR stamped all over it.

After I had returned it I kept telling friends about the plot.
It was SO different Out of Body Experiences being one of the main parts of the plot. Months later i was still raving about this story.

I have just read all of the reviews and some of them really describe the story very well so I won't repeat the plot here. Yes Frank Herbert does go on a little too long in one place only about OBE but the overall plot is SO MIND BLOWINGLY different it is in my 10 top stories
that I will never forget.

I would like to give this story a 4 and 1/2 star rating but after seeing some of the reviews I have to give this a 5 star. (I rarely give a 5 star). If you are not into scary horror don't buy this book and then give it a bad rating. It is mystery horror and well done.

The twists and at times (very sick) turns makes this a MUST read.

I have now gone to Audible and bought this story and downloaded it
to keep forever. You will never think about OBE again without thinking of this story!!!!! Highly recommended!!!
