Domain

Domain - James Herbert I have to say DOMAIN is the only book that made me physically ill while I was dipping into it - I've never found the nerve to read it all the way through yet.Not because of the rats (or The Rats?) but because of the nuclear war premise. I was a teenager of the Cold War, and expected never to make it to 1990 without going up in nuclear ash. Programmes like THREADS by the BBC and my research into fallout and the effects of nuclear war still tell me the best way to go would be quickly {shudder}.Which is where DOMAIN comes in with its Nightmare Fuel. There's a section where a doctor explains - in calm, clinical terms, speaking normally and without emotion, exactly the effects of radiation sickness.I nearly threw up.
