NOS4A2
NOS4A2 | Joe Hill
Joe Hill, the acclaimed, award-winning author of the New York Times bestsellers Heart-Shaped Box and Horns, plunges you into the dark side of imagination with a thrilling novel of supernatural suspense that will have you flinching at shadows and checking the rearview mirror again and again. . . .NOS4A2Don't slow downVictoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.Charles Talent Manx has a gift of his own. He likes to take children for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the vanity plate NOS4A2. In the Wraith, he and his innocent guests can slip out of the everyday world and onto hidden roads that lead to an astonishing playground of amusements he calls Christmasland. Mile by mile, the journey across the highway of Charlie's twisted imagination transforms his precious passengers, leaving them as terrifying and unstoppable as their benefactor.And then comes the day when Vic goes looking for trouble . . . and finds her way, inevitably, to Charlie.That was a lifetime ago. Now, the only kid ever to escape Charlie's unmitigated evil is all grown up and desperate to forget.But Charlie Manx hasn't stopped thinking about the exceptional Victoria McQueen. On the road again, he won't slow down until he's taken his revenge. He's after something very specialsomething Vic can never replace.As a life-and-death battle of wills buildsher magic pitted against hisVic McQueen prepares to destroy Charlie once and for all . . . or die trying. . . .Joe Hill's acclaimed works of fiction, Horns, Heart-Shaped Box, and 20th Century Ghosts, have already earned him international acclaim. With NOS4A2, this outstanding novelist"one of America's finest horror writers" (Time magazine); "a major player in 21st-century fantastic fiction" (Washington Post)crafts his finest work yet. Disturbing, mesmerizing, and full of twisting thrills, Hill's phantasmagoric, devilishly playful masterpiece is a terrifying high-octane ride.

What a day! Think it's pretty much going to be balls-out straight until Xmas.

Finally getting a chance to get back to my book for a bit tonight....if I can keep my eyes open long enough. Trying to decide if this can be used as a #HolidayRead or not. Who's read it? What do you think?

My current holiday read. So far I find it intriguing. I can't wait to see how the story progresses. I haven't been this interested in a book in awhile. The only other books I've read by Hill is The Fireman and the Locke and Key series, and I loved both. I do see a bit of his father's influence in this. Something about it does have a Stephen King feel to it, but better. I've never really been a King fan. Hopefully this will be a great journey. ❄️🎄

TheLudicReader I really want to read this. I‘ve read Heart Shaped Box, which I highly recommend, and 21st Century Ghosts, which is a collection of short stories. 5d

Audio loan didn't come back until yesterday, which was perfect because I was able to finish this & have it count towards the #WinterGames! Glad I finally read it. Obscene, creepy, & will make you think of Christmas in a different light lol. Filled with kids & adults doing horrific things & showcases a frightening innocence that does not discern evil from fun. Kate Mulgrew's narration really brought this to life. #HolidayRead #TMSkellington 4⭐️s

It's creepy and obscene at times but I'm hooked. Timing didn't work for me, but this could be a good one for the #WinterGames considering the references to Christmasland. #24b4Monday #readathon

Andrew65 Holiday Inn is obviously another great classic, as is Miracle on 34th Street. Not sure if I know Bells of St Mary. I also like The Holiday. Not Christmas movies but traditional Christmas Movies (eg always playing at Christmas) could be The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music.and Bedknobs and Broomsticks. @GypsyKat (edited) 4w
EadieB @Andrew65 Going My Way is the first movie and Bells of St. Mary is the sequel. Both are great movies:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bells_of_St._Mary%27s

These movies remind me of Maeve Binchy's stories are they are vey Irish Catholic.

Looking for a book set during Autumn, I found this chapter from the copy of “Nos4A2” that the wonderful @Branwen gave me for Christmas! 😊 And even cooler, this chapter takes place in the town I currently live in!

Wait... a book about a vampire takes place in Haverhill and I live in Haverhill... should I be worried? 😳🧛‍♂️

I had to hurry & read this bc I had an entire season of the show taking up space on my TiVo. I‘m thankful the show was a catalyst to get me reading faster since the book was very scary & well-paced. The characters each had a good amount of background story & I also loved the supernatural elements.
At one point while reading this I was convinced there was a murderer in the house which is my bar for scary stories.

I read this between Aug 22 & 27; and gave it 5 ⭐️ on Good Reads. The book starts a bit slowly but once it kicks in, I could not put it down. I read 400+ pages in a day. A workday. It‘s a creepy story but well written. Joe Hill is becoming a favourite author.
