Nobody True by James Herbert. James True was not there when he died. He returned from an out-of-body experience to find that he'd been murdered and mutilated.
He had no body to go back to.
But who murdered him? The serial killer terrorizing the city--or someone closer? True had no enemies, at least none that he knew of. To discover the truth, James True must track down his killer. The initial horror of True's experience is followed by an even greater terror. Without a body, True has no substance and no real power. No one can see him, no one can hear him, and no one except his murderer even knows his spirit still exists.

NOBODY TRUE by James Herbert - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK
Sep 19, shan Littlebookcove rated it it was amazing. I think by now everyone who reads my blog knows how much I adore James Herbet he's like right up there in my favourite authors Sadly, he's not with us anymore so this story really struck chords with me. It's such an unusual tale. I've never actually read anything like this! It has so many plots and turns. And not just murder's him I think by now everyone who reads my blog knows how much I adore James Herbet he's like right up there in my favourite authors Sadly, he's not with us anymore so this story really struck chords with me.
And not just murder's him, they totally mangle his body. It's now up to James to now only find out what the hell happened to his body, but to understand the now supernatural world he lives in and stop a dark threat that looms over his family and loved ones. Honestly, this was one hell of a tale and totally deserves its place on the supernatural box of the Halloween board. What an unusual topic for a story! This is my first James Herbert book and it certainly won't be my last. What a great book to start off the James Herbert readership with.
The story is about James True who has out of body experiences abbreviated to OBE for simplificity which he learns to control until he has them almost down to a fine art. However on his last OBE, he returns to his body to find it mutilated and rather dead! He is therefore in limbo land and unable to return back to his body an What an unusual topic for a story!
He is therefore in limbo land and unable to return back to his body and instead has to adapt to this new state of 'death' by haunting his family and trying to stop his beloved from imminent danger. I really wasn't expecting a Herbert book to have this much imaginative flair but imagined it would be filled with lots of haunted castles complete with bloodshed and gore aplenty.
However I was pleasantly surprised and even found myself lamenting on the story long after I had finished, and feeling pangs of sadness as the story replayed itself in my mind. The main plot involved James tailing the grisly and disfigured Moker as he went about his way murdering beautiful victims as a way of fighting his mental demons. Moker was also a suspect in James' murder and as the story progresses the truth is revealed as well as certain twists along the route which were a surprise to all and sundry.
The story writing is very vivid and the characters and stories bounce off the page and into your mind. This is a sign of an accomplished writer.follow site
Nobody True by James Herbert (Hardback, 2003)
The characters were well developed and each one had their own little secret culminating in a big finale which created an emotional and thought provoking end. As horror books go, this is not the writing of Stephen King who is synonymous with blood and gore, but there is certainly suspense, disturbing moments and the concept of OBE produced almost a magical but paranormal element. The book's only downside was how the narrator happened to always give a hint of what was to come.
Personally I would have liked to have experienced the journey on my own, allowing me to make up my own mind and seek surprises and red herrings as they happened. Knowing something was an incorrect assumption and revealing discrepancies to the plot before they happened spoiled my enjoyment.
Also the way in which it was revealed was quite simplistic in relation to the rest of the book. As I read towards the end of the book it was obvious that there would be emotional moments which would bring tears to anyone's eyes. Herbert did not disappoint and the book ended in a bitter sweet way. I have come across plenty of authors recently which I would not hesitate to follow and read, Herbert is one of them.
Unfortunately due to his demise, new books will not be available but I am sure there are plenty in the archives to keep me entertained. This is an excellent and thought provoking book which takes a look at humanity and also delves into political correctness. I would recommend it to anyone who would like to start on the James Herbert trail. Jun 09, Bandit rated it liked it. 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 On a quest to read Herbert, came across this one at the library.
Just something about it didn't sing for me the way some of his other books do. Not quite sure what, gonna have to think about it, it did read like a manual a tad in parts, which works in general for the narrative structure, but slowed down the pace some. Less horrific and graphic than some of Herbert's, more to do with horrors of human making. Interesting hope inspiring meditation on meaning of life in the end.
Pretty decent read. Oct 15, Paul rated it really liked it. Next time I have an out-of-body trip, I'm going to make sure I install a car alarm in my body. Not really a horror story at least compared to Herbert's usual standard. View 1 comment. 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 end and there is a great cast, an interesting premise and a pace to keep you enthralled right to the end.
There are a load of interesting ideas which are well executed within this book and none outstay their welcome. It is incisively written and crafted to take the reader on a journey. This book was better than I expected. Well worth a visit for anyone who likes a good mystery with a generous dash of the macabre. Oct 20, Sj rated it really liked it. The graphic descriptions of necriphelia are not for the faint hearted and i was almost shocked by the words, leaving me disgusted by Moker's character.
