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)

Wow! Totally blown away by this book. Frankly, I was not expecting this to be this good. Joe Hill seems to be channelling his father here, as I think that I'd've been hard-pressed to identify this book as anything other than a Stephen King novel had I not known the author. Scary, intense book with well-fleshed-out characters.

Audiobook notes - Kate Mulgrew absolutely knocked this one out of the park. I've been a big fan of hers for years, but I had no idea she had such a range of character voices at her disposal. I see that she's also narrating Joe Hill's next one. Sounds like a win-win to me! ( )

If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. I remember, a few years back, when Stephen King announced his retirement (obviously a touch premature), I thought, well, who's going to take his place?

Now I have my answer. Without giving anything away, this book simply fires on all cylinders. Characters that really should come across as goofy, instead inspire fear and dread. A plot that's more fantasy and could be silly, instead works very well.

If you enjoy horror, if you enjoy Stephen King at his best, then get this book. It's Joe Hill at the top of his game. ( )

This was a great book, although too much like his father in some parts. I would have liked it to have a little more of that unexpected feel that "Horns" had. Otherwise, this is an excellent book. ( )

Both very disturbing and very clever. This is a book that operates on multiple levels, and I like that. I like the sense of intentionality it carries, the feeling that this is a book with meanings left to convey, rather than pure thrill. Of course, it's a thrilling read as well.

The thing is, I'm not certain I liked it. I enjoyed it, as it balances humor and suspense in equal measure- the reappearance of Chekhov's gun coinciding with the use of the obviously loaded escape directions earned a laugh. This is a book that has fun with meaning.

There's a delightful duality going on here, where the primary story is in opposition with one imposed by external forces (psychiatrists, the police), and the author works that interplay expertly. The conflict between reality and delusion, and which is which, enriches the novel and allows for an additional depth of meaning to be played with.

All that said, I can't say this book is one of my favorites. I'm still somewhat of a newcomer to the horror genre, and haven't settled on a book I can point to as an exemplar of what I like, but I don't think this is it.

At the moment, my opinion is running along the lines of "I'm not sure I like what you've done, but I like that you've done it,"

Still, it's awesome to read something that carries meaning, and this book is a love song (or maybe a murder ballad) to metaphor. ( )

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.
