Nobody True James Herbert Halloween Bingo-Supernatural
Nobody True - James Herbert

 

Yay, that's 2 ticks off I didn't actually know this at the time. But I randomly picked James Herbert's Nobody True and it actually Turned out to be a really good random pick of a book I could use for the supernatural section of the Halloween bingo i'm doing.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

Jim True wasn’t there when he died. While he was ‘away’ on an out-of-body experience (something he has been able to do since he was a child) someone murders him. 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.

Nobody True by James Herbert
Nobody True - James Herbert

 

Read by Robert Powell ~14 hrs

Description: 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 . . . . his family are the murderer's next targets. 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. How can he save his family?


At times, this reminded me of Randall and Hopkirk but in slasher mode. We encounter knitting needles and killer carpets.

Heartbreaking
Dear Nobody: The True Diary of Mary Rose - Gillian McCain,Legs McNeil

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and Sourcebooks Fire in exchange for an honest review.

Dear Nobody: The True Diary of Mary Rose is a story of a girl struggling to escape her demons. It is a very raw story of a very real girl who suffered through some traumatic issues and tried to find an escape through drugs. Mary Rose was handed a shitty hand of cards and tried to play them the only way she knew how. Having read Go Ask Alice I expected something like that, but this book is in a whole different league.

I found this book to be absolutely heartbreaking, as no one should have to go through what Mary Rose did. My only issue with it is that it is a diary and not a novel, so it jumped around a bit. There wasn't much of an introduction to every new person, and at times I felt as if I didn't know who Mary Rose was talking about. None of that prevented me from getting wrapped up in Mary Rose's life though.

This story made me cry, not during the book, but after I was done reading and was thinking about it. Throughout most of the book Mary Rose is starting her diary entries with "Dear Nobody", clearly thinking that she didn't have anyone who would ever care to read it. Yet obviously there were people that cared about her enough to go get this published. I found it to be a great tribute to her as she mentioned how she would someday like to be an actor or an author.

I would suggest this for any teenager, anyone who has ever struggled with disease or drugs, anyone who has ever suffered a loss of a loved one and anyone who has ever felt alone in this world. I think we all go through times in life where we feel unloved, lonely and sad. But after the book is over it is clear that there were people that cared about Mary Rose, even if she didn't see it.

Dear Nobody: The True Diary of Mary Rose
Dear Nobody: The True Diary of Mary Rose - Gillian McCain,Legs McNeil OVERALL IMPRESSION: This was a heartbreaking story. I feel so bad about everything this girl had to go through. All she wanted was acceptance and she compromised herself in an attempt to get it. This story is not for everyone. It's extremely emotional and I had a hard time getting through it.

CHARACTERS: This is a hard category to write about for this book. I feel like I understand Mary Rose because we were reading directly from her diary. There aren't really any characters in this book that I like. I feel like with everything that's happening to Mary Rose that she should have a support system in her family at the least, but there's no one there for her and it breaks my heart.

COVER: The cover is fine. It's hard for me to judge the cover of this book with the intensity of feelings that I have about the book itself.

**I received an E-ARC of this book from Netgalley for my honest review.
