There are few books which can be re-read over a period of 10 years, The Survivor is one of these books that can be re-read. A new horror develops each time the reader casts his eyes over the horrific and macabre descriptions of physical and mental hauntings. In a twist to the plot that only now Hollywood is coming to grips with, Herbert takes us on a Gothic ride involving a devistating plane crash, the posession of individuals in Eton, such a quiet and close to home/reality place. Once again we become intimiate with all of the characters invloved in this story, a specialty of Herberts, then we are given graphic and horrific descriptions of their haunting, posessions and subsequent slayings.
I still check before i walk into dark rooms, listeing to the sounds, searching for stiffled chuckles, and checking the temperature !!!!
This book is guaranteed to make you think, what does Herbert know that we don't.....
