Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photography, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it's across Massachusetts or across the country. Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing--and terrifying--playground of amusements he calls "Christmasland." Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble--and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx's unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He's on the road again and he's picked up a new passenger: Vic's own son.… (més)

    It de Stephen King (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Malevolent entities that prey upon children are the driving force of these creepy, suspenseful horror stories. In both novels, only adults lucky enough to escape the villain's clutches in childhood are later able to battle the evil when it returns.… (més)

    The Shining Girls de Lauren Beukes (alaskayo)
    alaskayo: Well: Time-traveling serial killer powered by unexplained forces. You'll see the comparison in many reviews. Shining Girls gets a more mixed reaction, and is unconventional in its structure and uncomfortable violence, but is worth looking into for fans. (The audiobook is fantastic, with a full cast of readers for every character.)… (més)

I am abandoning this book. Not because it isn't good but because I can't stand to read what comes next. I know already...I have read plenty of horror novels like this and I know what comes next but I just can't push my way through it.

Maybe at some point I will pick it up again. It is a page turner but my heart just isn't in it.

This felt more like a Stephen King novel than any of Hill's other works I've read, and the references to Pennywise and Trashcan man (a guy dubbed Gasmask Man saying "my life for you" to a supernatural bad guy is a bit on the nose) seem to point to this being intentional. Hill admits as much in the Acknowledgements (oh, yeah, read THE WHOLE BOOK). There are probably other King references I didn't catch, but it's good in its own right, going to interesting places and defying expectations often enough. It also has fun with narrative conventions.

Vic McQueen learns when she's young that her bicycle can take her over a secret bridge. A bridge that no one else can access. She uses it to find lost things.

Charles Talent Manx also has a magic vehicle. His is a classic Rolls Royce Wraith, with the license plate "NOS4A2" pronounced Nosforatu like the old vampire. His car takes him to Christmas Land, but only if he has a child in the car with him.

This book is pure good vs evil. And the evil is really, really evil. Great horror tale that had me rooting for the good guys the whole way through.

Fair warning - LOTS of violence in this book. ( )

I liked the book, but I was a bit disappointed with it, mostly because I thought it would be better than it was and also that the book didn't have any characters that I actually liked very much. ( )

What's good stays good no matter how much of a beating it takes.
She breathed deeply of the scent of decaying fiction, disintegrating history, and forgotten verse, and she observed for the first time that a room full of books smelled like dessert:  a sweet snack made of figs, vanilla, glue, and cleverness.
But everyone also lives in the world inside their own head. An inscape, a world of thought. In a world made of thought--in an inscape--every idea is a fact. Emotions are as real as gravity. Dreams are as powerful as history.
Christmas was almost three months in the rearview mirror, and there was something awful about Christmas music when it was nearly summer. It was like a clown in the rain, with his makeup running.
She thought of mothering, which was really another word for being present and caring what happened to someone.
