    4.5 Stars When people saw me reading this they would ask if it was "any good." To say that this was good would be a massive understatement. It was supremely good. It was deliciously good. It was piss-your-pants good. It was leave-the-lights-on-all-night good. Yeah, it rocked! I was ...

    Stephen King really messed up his son, Joe. It?s not surprising. The children of famous people generally end up as tabloid fodder, and with King as a dad, I?m shocked that one of his brood hasn?t gone on an extended murder spree. King spends all day thinking of the most horrif...

    In order to enjoy this book for the disappointment it is, I suggest the following for the over 21 crowd: Take one sip every time...: Someone exclaims any one of: "No!"; "Oh my God!? ?What ARE you?? A character or location from a Stephen King novel is mentioned. You want t...

    Remember, way back at the beginning of the year, when I said that I wanted to hump Hugh Laurie's leg for writing The Gun Seller? After reading Horns, and just the ARC - not even the finished, shiny and perfect masterpiece - I want to hump Joe Hill's leg for writing it. Not too long...

    I want to start off by saying the copy of this book I read was a signed copy that was a birthday gift from a very dear friend. It's the first signed book I've ever owned, and I was more excited by the fact that STEPHEN KING'S son signed it than that it was signed by the author when I f...

    Joe Hill has the story-telling gift and his terrific sophomore effort catapults him onto my ?authors-to-watch? list. I had some heated internal debates regarding what final rating to tag this with as I vacillated between 5, 4 and 3 stars depending on where I was in the book, e...

    It's hard for me to rate this book. On one hand I was hooked within the first 20 pages. On the other hand though I found it emotionally draining and painful to read. There's a quote that Ig reads to himself that I think sums up my feelings as well: "It goes against the American stor...

    Well, I see a lot of reviewers liked this one... I may not be the first, but if I am, please let me be the first to disagree. Maybe it wasn't totally crap, but I found it a major disappointment. Let me say I liked Heart Shaped Box a lot. It was a genuinely scary book that while it m...

    As Horns is basically about a man who wakes up one day and finds that horns have sprouted on his head it is very tempting to start with a very lame joke ?here is a guy who wakes up feeling horny - LOL!?. Fortunately I would never stoop to that level (plus it has already been done)....

    This book was psychotic, sad, humorous, mysterious, and did I say psychotic? Imagine waking up with a pair of horns growing out of your head and every person you encounter suddenly has a compulsion to tell you their darkest thoughts and actions. Twilight Zone is a kid's show compared t...

    After a night of alcoholic indulgence and doing terrible things, Ignatius Perrish wakes up very hungover and very surprised - he discovers that somehow when he was passed out a pair of horns grew on his head. Understandably shocked by the fact, Ig at first tries to deny the very existe...

    3.5 stars ?You think you know someone. But mostly you just know what you want to know.? Of course I know by now that Joe Hill is none other than the son of the nearly worshipped Stephen King. I keep seeing praise in my feed and groups about his work, but Horns is my first t...

    Horns is one of the best books I've read in the last five years. I came to Hill via NOS4A2, which is the only book that ever truly frightened me in the way that some films can, initiating bouts of hypervigilance and night-terrors that messed with my sleep for two weeks. Horns is a v...

    I'm not a giant fan of the horror genre, but I'm glad I gave this book a chance as it was a decent enough read. Horns was more of a dark fantasy with a heavy dose of black comedy rather than your regular gore filled horror story, though it did have a few gory horror moments, and I thin...

    I'll start by saying that I loved both the book and the movie. Daniel Radcliffe did an amazing job at portraying Ig even if the actor looked a lot better than the book-Ignatius. Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with a t...

    Joe Hill writes from a dark and mysterious place. When I read this book, I was enthralled and uncomfortable at the same time. With every Hill novel I have read, the evil is unconventional and twisted. In this novel, the protagonist connects with the dark forces through mysterious horns...

    Oh, what a book! How wicked, how sardonic, how devilishly good! But with the main character called Ignatius (which means fire or firey one), what can you expect? Nothing better than a lovely strange story with well-fleshed characters and a subtle creepy atmosphere, with the theme o...

    Actual rating: 2.5 ? I had no idea where the story would go and how it would end, which led to me only be able to make a judgement at the very end. This is one of those books you really have to look at as a whole. However, I still can't say if I enjoyed it or if I didn't... T...

    I had high expectations for this book. It completely blew those expectations out of the water! This review might end up as a bunch of disjointed thoughts, because I'm having trouble organizing exactly how I felt. Warning: The beginning of this story is slightly soul-crushing. Thi...

    Surprisingly good. A clever premise that was executed really brilliantly. I hated the characters, each more loathsome than the next but I loved our MC Ig. But what I loved even more was the non-linear narrative style. Time jumps, POV changes, misleading narratives - all to fi...
