    Joe Hill has described this 700+ page book as "my senior PhD thesis on horror", about a very bad 140 year old man who kidnaps children and takes them to a terrible place called Christmasland. This is an accurate surface description, but doesn't even come close to describing what this b...

    All of Joe Hill's novels start out, for me anyway, with some awesome creepy hook - the ghost with the scribbled over eyes in Heart-Shaped Box, the appalling things that everyone is really thinking in Horns. Said hook gets me invested in the characters, is expounded on to great effect f...

    There was a lot of hype leading up to this one. It's rare that I'll snap up a book as soon as it's released, but I wanted to get this one read before I stumbled upon any spoilerish reviews. It lives up to the hype. Joe Hill is every bit the storyteller his father is. What he lack...

    When Victoria McQueen was young, she had a unique gift: she could summon an old covered bridge that would take her wherever she wanted to go. After an encounter with Charles Manx, a Rolls Royce Wraith-driving kidnapper with a similar ability, her life is torn to pieces. Twelve years la...

    Ok so I am so glad I gave Joe Hill another chance. For some reason I didn't like his earlier books. Guess what? I'm going to reread them just because I liked this book so danged much. The boy has definately came into his own. Creepy book that I couldn't put down. Vic was the perfect...

    Victoria McQueen is a badass artist with a badass talent that goes beyond her artistic abilities. She has the ability to cross any distance with her 'shorter way' bridge to locate missing things. The bridge comes into existence with the combination of her strong, creative mind and tr...

    I have a feeling that this is going to be a rambling kind of review full of leg-humps and drooling. You've been warned. But first, I want to get the non-leg-humpy stuff out of the way. Technically, I'm giving this 4 1/2 stars, because there were a couple things that just... didn...

    Do You Fear What I Fear? Christmas was one of the best things about being a kid. There is nothing quite like the anticipation leading up to Christmas morning. And even now, having achieved geezerhood, I am still a complete sucker for the big day. Every year a real tree, the lights,...

    at 700 pages this book has everything. a bit of Cujo , a bit of Christine, and old vampire, (that's just to name a few) looks like Joe reshuffled all of Steve's stories added a bit of his own spin and created his own monster. Certainly compelling reading, but you feel like you've read ...

    Review? Wow.. Of course this book deserves a review. It deserves one of the highest order. But what can I write that will do Joe Hill and his wonderful book any justice? I mean, really. My ability to rave on this awesome book is dwarfed by the sheer wordpower of Joe Hill. So,...

    I was a little torn on the rating here, as I find I often am. At times this was an easy 4 star read other times I was ready to go a low 3. As it stands lets call it a high 3. This is a horror read (sort of) and in this one the influence of Mr. Hill's father is very noticeable (are w...

    This bad boy was an interesting mashup of horror, mystery, suspense, romance, comedy, and fantasy. I'm not sure what genre to plug it into. It's unlike anything I've read before. Joe Hill wrote a few books and then just went all-in with a longer, epic story that spans decades, intr...

    Joe Hill's NOS4A2 is his third novel, and also his longest - the hardcover clocks in at 704 pages. I didn't like Hill's debut, Heart-Shaped Box - which I thought was full of cliches and very dull - so I am happy to report that NOS4A2 is a much more engaging novel, with an interesting c...

    People think I'm strange because I don't like Christmas. Well, this book did not cure me of this dislike in the slightest, nossir. Read it, and you'll understand. "You can?t let facts get in the way of the truth." I've also never been a fan of Christmas music. There's something jus...

    5 Stars. One of my top favorite books of all time (which should be obvious since I have now read the book twice and have listened to the audiobook once, narrated masterfully by Kate Mulgrew, as well). A Creepy, Disturbing Thrill Ride, with a flawed, yet lovable heroine, NOS4A2 i...

    I may never view Christmas songs the same way again. I don't know if I should thank Joe Hill for that or kick him in the knee! What can I say? I loved it (by "It" I mean this book and not "It" which I also loved)!!! I liked Horns, I liked Heart shaped box and I do believe those two ...

    "She told me about Charlie Manx. She warned me about him. She said there was a man, a bad man with a bad car. He used his car to suck the life out of children. He was a kind of vampire - a road vampire." I put this book off for a long time because I assumed by the title it was yet a...

    I had high hopes for this book, I admit it. I loved Mr. Hill's previous works and hoped that this one would be just as good. I was not disappointed. This is the story of Victoria (Vic) who, as a young girl, discovers a very special covered bridge. From there this book takes off int...

    My only experience with Kate Mulgrew, prior to listening to this audio book, was in her role as Captain Janeway from Star Trek: Voyager. It's odd, looking back, that I almost never watched Voyager because Mulgrew's voice irritated the hell out of me. Needless to say, I got over it, ...

    Joe Hill should just change his name to Joe THE FUCKING MAN Hill. Anyone care to sign my petition? :D When I read Heart Shaped Box I was a little underwhelmed. I felt that, while it was a great debut novel, it lost something crucial along the way. But when I read Horns somethin...

    After I finish my King reread in October, (or, at the rate I'm going, well before) I will be rereading Hill's books. Previous review: Yeah... I got nothing. Instant classic. The best book I have ever read. Nuff said. I can do better than that, and I will. I will start by saying ...

    I think the books hardest to get into are the horror ones because it's really a thin line between something being scary and it becoming funny and not believable so I really have to give credit to Hill because even though the book was long he kept me engaged the whole time and even thou...
