I've read Joe Hill's graphic novels (Locke & Key) and his debut novel (Heart-Shaped Box) and really enjoyed them, so it was definitely time to try another of his novels; I wasn't disappointed!! He's rapidly becoming one of my favourite horror writers!

This was a difficult story to read, but it was also so difficult to put down. I was totally gripped and, as always, loved the way Joe Hill crafted his story and brought his characters to life. I would happily read another 700 pages of the same...back to Christmasland!

Also, the little nods to his Dad's work, loved that.

This is an amazing horror novel, made even better in audiobook form thanks to Kate Mulgrew's impressive narration skills.

It's a Joe Hill book. It's amazing. That's all I can muster, because I'm emotionally exhausted, but still. It's a really good book.

Truly one of my favorite books! Excellent and rich characterization. A moving picture of the horror of innocence.

I highly recommend the audio book, Kate Mulgrew elevates the whole experience.

This really felt like a Stephen King book, which is not a bad thing, but not what I thought it would be. Oh well, The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. :)

Really good. While I didn't love Vick, I don't think I was supposed to. All the characters are greatly flawed, and that in itself is what makes the story so interesting. Charlie was promising a life away from the evils of everyday. The payoff was the creation of more evil by the loss of self.
I especially love the nod to Mr. Hill's father.
