Christmasland
Christmasland | Joe Hill
Kinder, wollt ihr ewig leben? Charlie Manx ist ein sehr, sehr bser Mann mit einem sehr, sehr bsen Auto. Er entfhrt Kinder nach Christmasland, wo ewige Weihnacht herrschen soll. Die Kinder erwartet dort jedoch etwas Schreckliches, und es gibt keinen Weg zurck. Mit seinem Meisterwerk moderner Fantastik entfhrt uns der mehrfach preisgekrnte Bestsellerautor Joe Hill auf einen unvergesslichen Horrortrip. Vicky, fr ihren Vater einfach nur das Gr, hat die geheime Gabe, Dinge zu finden verlorenen Schmuck, verlegte Fotos, Antworten auf unbeantwortbare Fragen. Dazu muss sie sich einfach nur auf ihr Fahrrad schwingen. ber die nahe gelegene alte Holzbrcke gelangt sie dann im Handumdrehen, wohin sie will, an all die meilenweit entfernten Orte, wo sich das Verlorene befindet. Der Kleinen ist klar, dass andere (ihre Eltern!) darber nur unglubig den Kopf schtteln wrden. Sie glaubt es ja selbst nicht richtig. Auch Charlie Manx hat eine spezielle Gabe. Er ist so in Kinder vernarrt, dass er sie gleich dutzendweise kidnappt. ber verborgene Wege bringt er sie in seinem unheimlichen Rolls-Royce nach Christmasland, wo er ewige Weihnacht zu feiern verspricht. Und da Vicky immer wieder rger anzieht, ist es kein Wunder, dass sich ihre Wege und die von Charlie irgendwann einmal kreuzen. Aber sie ist gewitzt genug, dem Hscher zu entkommen. Das ist jetzt Jahre her, und aus dem einzigen Kind, das Charlie je entwischen konnte, ist eine junge Frau geworden, die am liebsten alles vergessen wrde. Nur dass Charlie niemand ist, der etwas vergisst. Eines Tages nimmt er Vicky das Wichtigste in ihrem Leben. Kann sie es wiederfinden? Ein gnadenloser Kampf entbrennt, und Vicky will nur eines: Charlie endgltig vernichten ...

Highly enjoyed NOS4A2! I like a really scary thriller, which this was less on the super scary side but definitely thrilling and good till the end. Very creepy at times. Joe Hill's art in writing is pretty solid. Suggest reading not listening to this book!

FINALLY finished this tonight. It took way too long.
I really, really liked the story but I just found it dragged on and on too much for my taste. Hill definitely got his father's talent for description but sometimes, less is a lot more 😑

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. 1mo

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

This is where I ended for #24B4Monday. I tried to get a couple more hours in last night, but fell asleep after traveling home from in-laws lol. For my #BookReport, I almost finished the tagged.

I was hoping to have twice this time right now, but this is where I left off last night. Trying to finish my first Joe Hill before it auto returns tomorrow! 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 This is still a great time. 👏👏👏 2mo

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) 2mo
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/Going_My_Way

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.
