A review by bookshelfofchelsea
NOS4A2, by Joe Hill

dark slow-paced
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


This book was so close to being DNF'd by me SO many times. There were so many things that Hill kept repeating. Yes, we know this character is big, you don't have to mention it every time he's in a scene. There were also a lot of things that were predictable, too many to list. I feel like the characters aren't described well enough and are kind of unplanned throughout the book until he decided what their purpose was. My main gripe:
Spoiler how can Find My Phone work when they're in an imaginary inscape made in Charlie Manx's mind? Google wouldn't ever have been there before!
This book was 700 pages long and honestly, the story could have been told in 350 less pages. 
 I feel like I'm an outlier because this book has such high ratings... but, it just wasn't for me.
