I think I wanted to like this more than I actually did.


I gave it up after a couple of hundred pages but then I gave it another go and finished it. (I didn’t finish Heart Shaped Box).

From Amazon:-

NOS4A2 is a spine-tingling novel of supernatural suspense from master of horror Joe Hill, the New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns.

Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it’s across Massachusetts or across the country.

Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing – and terrifying – playground of amusements he calls “Christmasland.” Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble—and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx’s unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son.

  1. I’d marked “Horns” as a book I wanted to read, but since your opinion of Joe Hill’s third and first books is so lukewarm, I think I’ll drop it and find something else. Fall is coming, and I was looking for something suitably scary to read for the long, dark nights.

    • Lol, well I just read the blurb for Horns and I might put it on my list but way down the bottom. This one I just finished was ok – not scary though (I don’t scare easily though), it was just kind of long. Editors need to edit!
