About this deal

But of course, everything is not as it seems, and the full horrifying reality of the ancient evil that lies behind the religious fervour is slowly revealed by cynical local reporter Gerry Fenn (Herbert in disguise?), together with tortured local priest, Father Hagan. The juxtaposition of childhood innocence and something altogether more corrupt is a classic horror meme and is expertly constructed by Herbert. a b Plint, Alec (21 March 2013). "20 things you didn't know about James Herbert". The Daily Telegraph. London . Retrieved 21 March 2013. I had James Herbert on my list for a while now. I wanted to read The Fog and Rats but I stumbled upon this hidden gem and realized that the 2021 movie , The Unholy, was based off this. This was my first Herbert novel and while I didn't think it was amazing, I was definitely intrigued by the plot and overall thought it was 3.5 to 4 stars. N'Duka, Amanda (November 12, 2019).

The actual reason for Alice having these "gifts" and the church property and and old oak tree is told through a journal and it was "ok" but I do wish they went into this alil more and provided more insight as to why Elnor had this power and how she came to be.

At this point I want to jump in and point out however that along with many other authors, James Herbert's books developed and changed through the years - his early books where very visceral and tactile - sometimes at the expense of characterisation, but as the years went on he would mature and start to take on a more subtle and restrained approach and in some ways even more terrifying style. The Shrine was one of his early books and some of the scenes certainly reflect this.**.

Ok so my horror revival continues - this book (along with the other works of James Herbert) was the next stop after exhausting Stephen Kings prodigious publication list. This story to me at the time was totally different to what I was used to. Where Stephen King concentrated on characterisation and how they dealt with terrible and impossibly situations both physically and ethereal - James Herbert took his characters and put them through hell with all the blood and guts he could find. a disgraced journalist who discovers a series of seemingly divine miracles in a small New England town and uses them to resurrect his career. But the “miracles” may have a much darker source.

I considered being pissed about the ending but upon further contemplating on the matter I decided it made sense in context. The reason I say this is that even though these characters go through some very intense events they're not technically the main players in the cosmic battle. They're observers and on occasion the recipients of some of the violence but this is a tale of corruption vs the sanctity of creation. Human beings have no dog in the fight because they don't stand a chance against an entity that doesn't play by physical rules. People don't have a prayer to win so there's that. Jones, Stephen, ed.
