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)

Mostly good This book was recommended by a good friend and I enjoy thrillers so I figured I'd give it a shot. I picked up the audio book from my local library and jumped in. 
 
It didn't grab me right away but I think that may have had more to do with the narration than the story. Ms. Mulgrew was fantastic for most of the voices but there were at least two that made me want to turn it off and not go back. But I wanted to finish the book and chat about it with my buddy so I gritted my teeth and stuck it out.
 
I thought the concept was really interesting - certain people being able to project their internal realities into physical reality tied in with serial killing, child abduction, and vampirism. The main characters - protagonist and antagonist - were moderately interesting. 
 
While I enjoyed the book, I didn't love it. Besides the narration (it was Bing and Lou which bothered me the most), the writing style and some word choices (Wayne's voice didn't ring true for me) made it really hard for me to stay immersed in the story.
 
I'm glad that I stuck it out because the last few chapters made it a worthwhile read but I don't know that I'd read another book by this author. ( )

I was excited and anxious to read this book cause I'm such a huge fan of his dad. I didn't want to have any notions in my head and tried to forget his dad all together.... but look at him though!!
Anyway....
It was a big book, but oh, so epic!
I was enamored. This Christmas-like setting at times, not what you would think of when thinking of horror. Somehow I might not look at Christmas the same again. This story was just so different from anything I have ever read. And that's a good thing. Especially reading as much as I do.
I had to know what happened to this family. They seemed cursed to me. I loved how the book wrapped up too. I wasn't ready for a sequel and thankfully, there was no room to make one. Everything came together better than I could have hoped for.
I have a few more books waiting for me. Can't wait to get to them. If you like intense and thrilling reads, get this one. Don't be scared of its' size... the pages go fast.
4.5/5 ( )

Very good. I think Joe Hill is actually a better writer than his dad (Stephen King). ( )
  atari_guy | May 11, 2021 |
This is my third Stephen King book, which is a compliment.
I liked the importance of place as a character in the story, I liked how the pacing was different. I remember being at 25% and feeling like the story was wrapping up.
I liked wondering who the main character was (Vic or Wayne). About half-way through the book I got a brain virus. Every time I read Charles Manx, I was concerned about his son (Charles Manx' son)and I secretly hope that Charles Manson shows up in the next one.
What rocked was the Firefly, Buffy and comic book references. Thank you for those.

I am a fan and will read everything else Joe Hill writes. ( )

Like his father, Joe tends to ramble on. Its a good thing he also picked up his father's skill for horror as well. ( )

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.
