James Herbert ¾ 2 Review The City Review ´ 102 Ir and Domain It maps a chilling post apocalyptic future where the pathetic remn. I remember finding this book in my local library back when I was about fifteen At the time I had little idea who James Herbert was I didn t know about his Rats trilogy and I was still a fledgeling when it came to horrorThis book actually inspired me so much that I actually did a short roleplay of it replacing the rats with zombies for an English class I was such a dorkI think what grabbed my attention right off the bat as it probably was with a lot of people was the artwork Ian Miller s art style was surreal nightmarish and visceral in ways that made this seems less like the real world and like an alien planet So much of the story takes place in the eponymous City and very little of it feels normal The place has been turned into a giant rat s nest with the buildings and streets being designed with a organic feel The character s are all distinct with nearby every human face in the crowd being distinctThe rats meanwhileThey re like a tidal wave or fur and fangs They swarm and eat and kill Lead by a larger specimen with a red eye they are unstoppable and very VERY dangerous I ve nothing against rats I actually think they re pretty cute and very misunderstood but in the context of this storybrrrBut on the note of the story that s where the book falls down into the swarm At its core the story is rather simple if a little obtuse The traveller because I don t think he has a name I ll have to check has one goal in the city To get his wife and daughter out Except we re never told this until about halfway through the story Up to that point it s of a sightseeing trip through the City alongside the Traveller s two mechanical or armoured it s never clear dogs And once we learn the reason he s in the city and watch what happens ultimately the story kind of just wanders off There is an ending to things but it s just kind ofa thingAnd on the note of the Traveller he s kind of a blank slate For most of the first half he wears a mask efectively blanking his identity and personality He says nothing explains nothing opines nothing And given that the rest of the cast are mostly bystanders that come and go or are there for flavour we have to rely on the Traveller to guide us And he s a stone blockOverall The City is not something you read for the story It s simplistic bland and one note What you read The City for is the art Think of it like a haunted house Imagine yourself as the Traveller wandering through those nightmarish streets and you ll have a cracking good time Speaking in Images Interviews with Contemporary Chinese Filmmakers Global Chinese Culture eponymous City and very little of it feels normal The place has been turned into a giant rat s nest with the buildings and streets being designed with a organic feel The character s are all distinct with nearby The Girl Who Helped Thunder and Other Native American Folktales every human face in the crowd being distinctThe rats meanwhileThey re like a tidal wave or fur and fangs They swarm and The Rosary eat and kill Lead by a larger specimen with a red Unforgivable Invincible #2 eye they are unstoppable and very VERY dangerous I ve nothing against rats I actually think they re pretty cute and very misunderstood but in the context of this storybrrrBut on the note of the story that s where the book falls down into the swarm At its core the story is rather simple if a little obtuse The traveller because I don t think he has a name I ll have to check has one goal in the city To get his wife and daughter out Except we re never told this until about halfway through the story Up to that point it s of a sightseeing trip through the City alongside the Traveller s two mechanical or armoured it s never clear dogs And once we learn the reason he s in the city and watch what happens ultimately the story kind of just wanders off There is an Bystander ending to things but it s just kind ofa thingAnd on the note of the Traveller he s kind of a blank slate For most of the first half he wears a mask På Vei efectively blanking his identity and personality He says nothing The Spider vs The Empire State explains nothing opines nothing And given that the rest of the cast are mostly bystanders that come and go or are there for flavour we have to rely on the Traveller to guide us And he s a stone blockOverall The City is not something you read for the story It s simplistic bland and one note What you read The City for is the art Think of it like a haunted house Imagine yourself as the Traveller wandering through those nightmarish streets and you ll have a cracking good time

The City

James Herbert ¾ 2 Review The City Review ´ 102 Ants of mankind scrape out an existence in ruins under the new order of the rats. As a stand alone volume this might have worked But as the fourth installment of the Rats saga it does not It s a shame in the decline of the story from 1 to this This story has The Traveller returning to what I believe is London and he is angry He puts a hurting to the rats Hooray for himMy advice skip this And do NOT pay for it It s only 64 pages most of which are just art Bummer of an ending to this saga

James Herbert ¾ 2 Review The City Review ´ 102 This graphic novel is the fourth of James Herbert's rat novels after The Rats La. This is a strange title which is now very difficult to get hold of sometimes my almost pathological refusal to part with books does have its moments but I do have a copy and here is my completion of the the Rats saga from James Herbert The book is set in the same world and location as Domain but some years further along The situation has not improved and I must admit the whole stark world is disturbingly realised with the art work of Ian MillerAnd this brings me on to the artwork after all it is a graphic novel Ian Miller is a very talented artist some of his illustrations for Games Workshop for example are defining pieces which I think played no small part in the companies success in its early days However they are incredible stark and imposing and at times I feel detract from the story The story of which is just as powerful as the previous books if not a feeling a little familiar by now but the artwork makes it feel surreal or that is just me I guessTo me this IS part of the Rats canon however I am sorry to say it is not a powerful conclusion and I can see why the series is often than not referred to as a trilogy The book itself is as I say very difficult to get home and unless you are a completist or devoted fan you are not missing much but it has to be remembered in context it was early the 90s and the production of a very gifted British horror author
