Description

Joe Hill's critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling, Bram Stoker Award-winning debut chiller, Heart-Shaped Box, heralded the arrival of new royalty onto the dark fantasy scene. With Horns, he polishes his well-deserved crown. A twisted, terrifying new novel of psychological and supernatural suspense, Horns is a devilishly original triumph for the Ray Bradbury Fellowship recipient whose story collection, 20th Century Ghosts, was also honored with a Bram Stoker Award—and whose emotionally powerful and macabre work has been praised by the New York Times as, "wild, mesmerizing, perversely witty…a Valentine from hell."

    I'm not a big reader. I like books I have a hard time getting more than half way through one that doesn't keep me going. This book, however, is one of the best books I've read in a long time. I can't put it down.
  • Worth the read.

    Wish I could find more books like this. This one went a little to dark for me and a little to religious but it's still a good book.
  • Great story!

    Over the past few weeks I've read about a dozen books from various 'scary' book lists. While Horns is not necessarily terrifying, it's the only book I've read out of the dozen in which I became completely absorbed. It's loaded with that special brand of suspense that keeps you burning through pages while simultaneously making you almost dread what you might read next. A kind of literary aversion/compulsion. This is the first experience I've had with Joe Hill's writing but it will not be the last. It's nice to find a relatively new author whose upcoming publications are worth serious anticipation.

    That I have read in a long time. And I read a lot, daily. This book has it all; love, hate, envy, revenge, despair and hope. Plus much, much more. BTW, it is so good that I felt the need to write this review, my first.
  • Garbage...

    This book is an absolute piece of garbage. It makes no sense whatsoever and has, without a doubt, the least satisfying resolution of any book I've ever read. I can't begin to tell you what a monumental waste of my time and money this book was. Wow!
