Home James Herbert The Fo. It was a book that (literally, you might say) went straight for the jugular. The Rats was my first attempt at a novel. The Fog was my second

Home James Herbert The Fog. Home. The Fog was my second. For better or worse, they were the initial part in a growing explicitness of narrative, stories that rarely balked at expressing horror’s true physical reality. Judging by the genre’s swift return to public attention, through both the novel and the screen, that reality had been suppressed far too long (whether or not the sudden healthy release has transmuted into an unhealthy fascination is another matter).

The Fog is a horror novel by English writer James Herbert, published in 1975. It is about a deadly fog that drives its victims insane when they come into contact with it. Herbert's second book, it is completely unrelated to the film The Fog by John Carpenter. John Holman is a worker for the Department of the Environment investigating a Ministry of Defence base in a small rural village. An unexpected earthquake swallows his car releasing a fog that had been trapped underground for many years.

THE FOG (no relation to John Carpenter's excellent 1980 film) was only Herbert's second novel (I have yet to read his first, THE RATS, but after experiencing Herbert in these pages I have a pretty good idea what is in store for me), but it is clearly the work of a seasoned professional who not only knows how to.

Herbert's The Fog is one of the finest British horror novels of the 70's. From the thrilling opening, in which an inexplicable earthquake rips apart a small English community to the slow and steady progression of the nebulous fog that doggedly advances upon London's teeming millions, this short novel strikes like a blade to the heart.

The strange fog, which obeys no meteorological laws, causes all who find themselves enveloped by it (including animals) to turn into sadistic, horrifically violent killing machines. At first, the isolated reports of outbreaks of violence are dismissed as aberrations, but as the reports pile in, the government slowly drags itself into action… still covered in the bureaucratic red tape that marked the nightmare of the post-Heath, new Thatcher government in England.

And the violence of the novel, even to a jaded 21st century reader, is astonishing. Herbert doesn't linger over gory details, but rather uses a scalpel instead of a chainsaw to cut to the bone of white-knuckle horror. The abominable acts committed by good English folk upon their fellow countrymen and women is beyond description. And I can honestly say that to this day, I can't even look at a pair of hedge clippers without cringing inside.

The Fog is a forgotten masterpiece, and one that deserves a new generation of readers.

I liked the fog though it seems a bit dated now I have to admit one scene where the key player is walking through the thick fog and cannot see in front of him scared the pants off me!! For that scene alone I gave it three stars ; a little winded word wise but back then and I'm no spring chicken I'm FROM back then anyway at that time it must have been cutting edge horror,,, worth a peek though

Best of James Herbert,the classical thriller,which engages the reader right from beginning and goes at a fiery pace right through. The description of events,sometimes looks dated which can be understood as this novel was written in 70s,but the theme appears as fresh as ever and quite believable. If anyone is interested in James Herbert,this will be the book, i'll be recommending.

"James Herbert comes at us with both hands; not willing to simply engage our attention, he seizes us by the lapels and begins to scream in our faces." ~ Stephen King

King wrote those words in his seminal look at the horror genre DANSE MACABRE, and a more fitting tribute to James Herbert you will not find anywhere. For that one sentence sums up Herbert's plan of attack perfectly: unlike King, and I'd venture to suggest unlike most, Herbert does not waste time setting the scene but wades right into the middle of the lake where the horrors are. The setting takes care of itself in most of Herbert's novels: while he isn't much concerned about it, they all have a great sense of both the time and place in which they happen.

THE FOG (no relation to John Carpenter's excellent 1980 film) was only Herbert's second novel (I have yet to read his first, THE RATS, but after experiencing Herbert in these pages I have a pretty good idea what is in store for me), but it is clearly the work of a seasoned professional who not only knows how to write, but has a keen grasp of his chosen genre. Herbert knows what scares you, and he serves it up piping hot.

What the titular fog is is almost negligible: an underground explosion almost completely destroys a small town in England, and as a result of this explosion a "fog" rises from the bowels of the earth and we soon find out that anyone who is exposed to it, human or animal, goes off the rails in fairly short order, and unspeakable things happen.

The bare bones of this superb novel are about the British government's attempts to analyze and destroy the fog, which may or may not have been created by the Ministry of Defence as a bio-weapon. But while all that's interesting (Herbert is many things, but even when he's writing filler he's never dull), it's the things that happen to people and animals as a result of the "fog" that are the real driving force behind this book. It is one of the most horrific things I have ever read. All the more so, perhaps, because like so many English writers, Herbert's prose is cool, matter-of-fact, and tends to avoid the melodrama so often found in American literature.

Horror fans everywhere: if you can get your hands on a copy, read this book. It is stupidly out of print at the moment, and I managed to get a used copy through Amazon. So long as all the pages are there you're good to go; it's what's inside a book that counts and what's inside this one is likely to give you nightmares for weeks.

On the same level as "Day of the Triffds", read the first few pages and you're hooked into reading the total book in as few sittings as possible.

Nice, easy, and sometimes brutally graphic read. It's not a classic, but it's a damn fine roller coaster ride for sure!

Great read. My first book by this author and not my last. He really did a good job of keeping the suspense and the twists and turns of the storyline kept you reading on. Great job
Just so so. Enjoyable but not mind blowing.
