Horns
Horns: A Novel | Joe Hill
Joe Hill has been hailed as "a major player in 21st-century fantastic fiction" (Washington Post); "a new master in the field of suspense" (James Rollins); "one of the most confident and assured new voices in horror and dark fantasy to emerge in recent years (Publishers Weekly); a writer who "builds character invitingly and plants an otherworldly surprise around every corner" (New York Times).This gifted and brilliantly imaginative author catapulted to bestsellerdom with the chilling Heart-Shaped Box and cemented his reputation with the prizewinning volume of short fiction 20th Century Ghosts. At last, the New York Times bestselling author returns with a relentless supernatural thriller that runs like Hell on wheels. . . .Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with a thunderous hangover, a raging headache . . . and a pair of horns growing from his temples. At first Ig thought the horns were a hallucination, the product of a mind damaged by rage and grief. He had spent the last year in a lonely, private purgatory, following the death of his beloved, Merrin Williams, who was raped and murdered under inexplicable circumstances. A mental breakdown would have been the most natural thing in the world. But there was nothing natural about the horns, which were all too real.Once the righteous Ig had enjoyed the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned musician and younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, he had security, wealth, and a place in his community. Ig had it all, and more—he had Merrin and a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic.But Merrin's death damned all that. The only suspect in the crime, Ig was never charged or tried. And he was never cleared. In the court of public opinion in Gideon, New Hampshire, Ig is and always will be guilty because his rich and connected parents pulled strings to make the investigation go away. Nothing Ig can do, nothing he can say, matters. Everyone, it seems, including God, has abandoned him. Everyone, that is, but the devil inside. . . .Now Ig is possessed of a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look—a macabre talent he intends to use to find the monster who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It's time for a little revenge. . . . It's time the devil had his due. . . .

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

madamereadsalot1 @TobeyTheScavengerMonk my favorite short story ever!? I'd have to think about that... Weird that I never have before. 😅 My favorite Joe Hill short story though would probably be The Black Phone. 1mo

I feel like this book had its ups and downs. It slowed down and got a little boring sometimes, but for the most part it held my attention. I‘m up for seeing the movie.

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.

readordierachel I liked this too. Such a clever idea. And you were told right, the movie is awful. 5mo
madamereadsalot1 I'm glad you liked it! Even if it wasn't as much as I did. 😉😆 5mo

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

madamereadsalot1 I really hope it doesn't disappoint you! He's really nothing like his dad in writing style or story telling. This book is one if my absolute favorites. Top 5 for sure. 5mo
Exbrarian I‘m enjoying it so far. 5mo

Had been meaning to get round to this for a while. Had a few long work trips recently so decided to listen to the audio book in the car. I love Joe's writing, and the totally batshit storylines he often comes up with. Great book, would highly recommend

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.

Not my favourite Joe Hill novel, but it is a solid read. I enjoyed how you bounced back and forth from past to present. The novel did get a bit depraved at points, but it made sense in context why it went down that path.

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.

madamereadsalot1 It was my first Joe Hill too! Didn't even know he was King's son when I picked it up from the new release shelf at my library! I fell in love and have read everything Joe Hill's put out since! It'll always remain one of my top 5 favorite books! 10mo

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.

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.

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.”
