James Herbert was not just Britain's number one bestselling writer of chiller fiction, a position he held ever since publication of his first novel, but was also one of our greatest popular novelists. Widely imitated and hugely influential, his twenty-three novels have sold more than fifty-four million copies worldwide, and have been translated into over thirty languages, including Russian and Chinese. In 2010, he was made the Grand Master of Horror by the World Horror Convention and was also awarded an OBE by the Queen for services to literature. His final novel was Ash. James Herbert died in March 2013. --This text refers to the Digital edition.

Format: Paperback
Don't pay attention to the clown who wrote the nasty one-star review. This book was so much fun I didn't want it to end. Survival horror that's truly scary, sure it has some flaws (but what King/Koontz horror novel doesn't!)It's a little dated at times and vague at filling in the blanks as to why it happened,(I'm glad it didn't it places the reader firmly in the characters shoes) this is not a book solely about nuclear war it's a book about fear of the unknown: Trying to survive nature out of control, terrifying gory rat attacks, dissention among each other, along with radioactive fallout, and the contaminated survivors, diseases, injury without a doctor ect. Intense unrelenting action, graphic violence, split decisions with catastrophic consequences, sense of doom and dismay that permeates every page makes for a thrilling read...(The Rats are the real stars of this story) this is not a boring book and it would make a great movie.

A day like any other in Cold War London, until the unspeakable happens. Sirens, Panic, Fire. The worst appears to be over. But whereas other authors would consider this the climax of a novel James Herbert would consider this only a backdrop for a novel which is arguably his best work in a resume of already great writing. Of course, this book is a Cold War relic, but by no means anachronistic. The threat of nuclear attack is still omniprsent in todays post Cold War society. But to say that this book is about nuclear war is the same as saying that Stephen Kings The Stand is about a plague. It's true but the real suspense occurs with this as a backdrop. This is of course, the concluding portion of the Rats Trilogy (Rats=1, Lair=2, Domain=3) and by far the best of the three. The action centers around three people, Steve Culver (the prototypical Herbert hero), Alex Dealy (the prototypical Herbert bureacratic idiot), and Kate Garner (the prototypical Herbert female lead). Yes his characters are formulaic but you don't go to a Steven Segal movie for the acting, you go to see bad guys getting beat up and stuff getting blown up. Here's how the plot line goes. The heroes first get knocked into hell with the nuclear blasts. They manage to escape the first rat onslaught because Culver gets lucky enough to find the bureacrat Dealy (actually Dealy gets lucky enough that Culver saved his arse from the nuclear blast, which made Dealy temporarily blind, instead of leaving him to die which Dealy surely would have done to Culver had positions been reversed), along with Kate, but it is Dealy who knows where the "secret entrance" to the government fallout shelter is. There is a calm where the heroes are in the government installation and being treated for the disease the rats carry.Read more ›

Even though this book is from the 80's, and some of the cultural references are dated, it is an excellent, suspenseful book, with moments of dread scattered throughout the book. I really enjoyed it so much, that I am going to try to pick up copies of his other books.

Format: Paperback
"Domain" by James Herbert is a non-stop action packed, post-nuclear bomb, end-of-the-world story that brings back the over sized, overly vicious mutant rats from Herbert's "The Rats" and "Lair". Fortunately, granite jawed Steve Culver is on hand to keep the rats down and lead a dwindling group of survivors to safer ground. Culver comes from the same mold as Nick Carter, Remo Williams, and Dirk Pitt. A less proficient, flawed hero wouldn't have survived more than two minutes, so it's a good thing Culver has his stuff together. Things start out grim and never let up, but what would you expect from the end of the world? We also get politically motivated internal conflict within the group as well as a violent run-in with another group of survivors. "Domain" is rock solid gloomy entertainment from beginning to end. Not for the timid. 3 1/2 stars.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Elizabeth med445@aol.com on June 1, 1998
Format: Hardcover
Note-this is a sequel to The Rats-but it's not necessary to have read the first book-- London is hit with 5 nuclear bombs. Two men struggle to reach a secret government facility hidden within the tunnels of the subway system. Once there, relief is quickly supplanted by horror as they discover that they are sharing the tunnels with giant mutant rats--awakened and emboldened by the nuclear attack. Driven out of the tunnels into the horrible wreckage of the city, their battles continue with their hopes that help will arrive fading quickly. This book was written in a time when the Cold War was still being waged and the realistic portrayal of the decimation of the city and the horrors that follow the bombings was chilling, even now in 1998 with our amicable relationships with Russia and China. At the time I am writing this, India and Pakistan are headline news-each testing their own nuclear weapons...

This is James Herbert's best book ever and one of the best horror novels ever written. WWIII erupts over London and the survivors hide below the destroyed capital and away from the radiation. But below, the huge, mutant rats wate for them. Man's final struggle with these killers is the basis for this awesome novel. The action, suspense, gore and horror is incredible. What a book!
