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.

I highly recommend you read this as an audio book. The narrator is Kate Mulgrew and she does an excellent job! She is especially creepy and convincing as the villain, Charles Manx. The book is a little longer than necessary, but this is made up for by great, sympathetic characters who are lovably imperfect and an action-packed packed plot. It does have a distinct Stephen King flavor.

MidnightBookGirl This is an audiobook I'm forever recommending! 7d

Starting my first Joe Hill book. I'm curious to see how his writing compares with his father's writing. I want to read this before I watch the TV series...

Horror genre but it‘s not horrifying rather dark & twisted with a balance of humor & wit. I had quite a book hangover after reading this one, btwn supernatural elements, Christmasland, and terminology of inscapes, strong creatives, & a knife all are quite fascinating. Hill writes seriously creepy kids, a great villain, some bad ass female characters. I was hooked all the way till the last sentence.

TrishB A great read 👍🏻 1mo

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 😑

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. 3mo

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

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) 3mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Going My Way is the first movie and Bells of St. Mary is the sequel. Both are great movies:

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