James Herbert was one of Britain’s greatest popular novelists and our #1 best-selling writer of chiller fiction. Widely imitated and hugely influential, he wrote 23 novels which have collectively sold over 54 million copies worldwide and been translated into 34 languages. Born in London in the forties, James Herbert was art director of an advertising agency before turning to writing fiction in 1975.
His first novel, The Rats, was an instant bestseller and is now recognised as a classic of popular contemporary fiction. Herbert went on to publish a new top ten best-seller every year until 1988. He wrote six more bestselling novels in the 1990s and three more since: Once, Nobody True and The Secret of Crickley Hall. Herbert died in March 2013 at the age of 69.
“There are few things I would like to do less than lie under a cloudy night sky while someone read aloud the more vivid passages of Moon. In the thriller genre, do recommendations come any higher?” (Andrew Postman, The New York Times Book Review)
“Herbert goes out in a blaze of glory” ( Daily Mail)

Moon by James Herbert
Any additional comments?
Moon by James Herbert is a forgettable horror novel. I had a hard time getting into it and once I did I had a hard time staying involved with the story. It was like watching a made-for-TV movie that was filmed over 20 years ago.
I think this was written in 1985 and it shows its age in that the main character's job is a high school computer teacher and the computers are laughable compared to today.
The narrator, Jonathan Keeble, really does a great job, and he puts a lot of effort into it. However, as I've already said, I just couldn't get into it. That's why I gave him three stars, but if someone else gave him five stars I couldn't fault them.
I can see how some people will love this audio book. If you're a fan of horror fiction, you don't mind 30 year old books and you like British accents... Then you'll probably like this one a lot more than I did.

Great read... James Herbert never lets me down.
What about Jonathan Keeble’s performance did you like?
Great performance... Has mastered giving me the chills.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The ending was very chilling and very well done.
