This was a terrific book to listen to, the narrator made it so the book wasn't boring to listen to. The voices he did through the book were great
Read this as a recommendation from @madamereadsalot1
It‘s a pick. I don‘t think I liked as much as she does, and I don‘t think it‘s for everyone, but it‘s well above average and plenty enjoyable. I‘m told the movie is awful, but I have not seen it so that didn‘t influence me.
This was recommended to me by @madamereadsalot1
I don‘t usually take recommendations, I‘m very resistant to suggestions, but I‘m trying to question my own patterns of behavior especially with regard to reading. Joe Hill is apparently Stephen King‘s son, which is not a selling point for me. However, he‘s named after my favorite labor activist, so maybe Mr. King ain‘t so bad. The main character drives 72 AMC Gremlin and I once owned just such a car
This was intense, and I kind of wish it stayed in Ig's POV, because it gets hardcore. Big warnings for sexual assault+, which I was ill prepared for. It was good at creating the characters, especially when it did change perspective, but kind of loses you with some of the fantasy elements and the 'whys' of the protag's affliction.
Slowly getting back into it.....still waiting to hear results on tumour removed from our doggie 😔 Enjoying this Audiobooks loads now I've finally downloaded Audible to my phone and linked my account #audible #currentlylistening
Ig spent the night drinking and going terrible things. He woke the next morning with a raging headache... and a pair of horns protruding from his forehead. The first Joe Hill I read, and it kept me hooked.
My God this family is talented.
Joe has his own style and it's easy to get hooked into the story.
Glad this was my first Joe Hill book.
Thank you so much Ashley!!! I practically squealed with joy when I opened it as Joe Hill is at the top of my list of authors that I really want to read but have never read. I can‘t wait to read it, especially knowing it‘s also one of your favorites! 😀💕
We have left the present and stepped into the past to discover character motivation (I suppose). And I find myself looking for other things to do at the end of each chapter. Or is it that I‘m sitting amongst boxes, getting geared up for my cross-country drive tomorrow? Hmmm.
It's early days but the narrator doesn't seem particularly great at voicing different characters, especially women, so you can readily tell them apart. Promising start to the actual book though 👍

I‘m not sure how i feel about this one. Definitely didn‘t like it as much as NOS4A2. Overall, I like Joe Hill‘s writing. I had a hard time getting past the bashing of religion and certain politics (another book with a republican villain. Getting really old and ridiculous 🙄)
1. I‘m not a fan of scary books but I did read Horns by Joe Hill a few years ago.
2. Well, one reason I read Horns was to see the movie. Though when I was little I saw part of Platoon and I will never watch that again.
3. Nothing too scary has ever happened to me (knock on wood) but one time my friend and I had a creepy guy follow us around Venice.

Thanks for the tag @tpixie
a wonderful look at the human conundrum being caught between good and evil, and how fluid these concepts can be based on our life experiences. It examines the human desire for revenge, truth, and peace and all the costs that these things can be. It all looks at takes stereotypical concepts of good and evil and turns them in a wonderfully different way. If you are curious about the human need for salvation this is a must read.
I LOVED this book. It has everything I love in books; dark humour, bit of horror, love, and great writing. The end made me bawl my eyes out on a plane coming home from a trip, it also made me laugh out loud. Highly recommend.
“Hopefully, over the years of being best friends, Lee would learn the truth about music: that it was the third rail of life. You grabbed it to shock yourself out of the dull drag of hours, to feel something, to burn with all the emotions you didn‘t get to experience in the ordinary run of school and TV and loading the dishwasher after dinner.”
