On a quest to read Herbert, came across this one at the library. This is a good book of his to borrow from the library instead of buying, since it's not really his best. It's an interesting premise (a person away on an Out Of Body Experience OBE comes back to find his body brutally murdered and has to find out what happened), sympathetic narrator, plenty of twists that make the book's name so appropriate and even a moral. Just something about it didn't sing for me the way some of his other books ...more

James True is een zakenman , getrouwd met Andrea en ze hebben een dochter, Primrose. James heeft vanaf kinds af aan al een bepaalde gave, namelijk dat hij “Out of body experiences” heeft, oftewel in het Nederlands, zijn astrale (geestelijke) lichaam kan uit zijn fysieke lichaam treden. De eerste zin van het boek is : “ik was er niet bij toen ik doodging.

A partner in a thriving advertising company, he's happily married with a beautiful daughter. Much of his energy is directed into his business and his personal life, this is until
Ah, there is nothing like a James Herbert back on form. After the horror (metaphorical rather than literal) that was 'Once' I find myself once more in the horror (literal) that is 'Nobody True'. This book would suggest that, as I had hoped, that Once was a blip rather than a dip in the form of the writer.

This is a classic James Herbert. Based on a solid story there are really dark elements of this book. The book is a single volume so you know that when you get to the end it will actually be the

‘Over zijn lijk’ is het eerste boek van James Herbert dat ik in handen krijg.
Ik dacht de verhaallijn wel wat te kunnen voorspellen omdat dit niet mijn eerste Vintage Mysterie-boek is.
Maar niets is minder waar.

Het levensverhaal van James True (of eerder sterfverslag) begint zeer omschrijvend.
Iets waar je als lezer voor valt of net niet.
Ikzelf was van in het begin helemaal mee met de schrijfstijl en het aangename leesgevoel.
Maar het duurde toch even voor hoofdpersonage James me volledig in zijn ve
