I hung in with this book purely to see if there was a great ending (there was no ending). Blah blah blah what was the point in all this. What a waste of time. Boring, jumbled, disjointed, poor character interaction. Basically what the hell does this all mean. It left me not wanting anymore from Joe Hill, it will take some time before I try another. Stay away from this book. I have enjoyed his past work but this was horrible......did I mention it was horrible?
I would listen to Horns again because it's a fantastic story!
I don't know if I could compare this to any other books. Horns feels unique and fresh.
Ig was my favorite. Since we follow the character all the way throughout we get a strong connection with him.
I don't want to spoil anything with this book. Although, when you find more about what happened to Ig, it's heart-breaking.

Yes, no problelm with the that. He was a bit shrill at certain points, though
I much rather provide positive feedback, but this was a long unpleasant story with nearly no uplifting moments. Everyone hates the main character and he basically hates everyone else. Any story that has painful moments, also needs a break. Positive things need to happen to break up the hell that them main character goes through.. I disliked this story so much, I stopped reading it about half way through and just read the summary on wikipedia.
The story line for Horns was interesting but I had a rough time sticking with it due to the offensive language. I know that in "reality" some people use this kind of language and I can handle it in small doses. I do not think that there is one character in this book the doesn't use the "F" word in every other sentence. Sorry but there should be some kind of warning with books like this.
I really enjoyed Heart Shaped Box and 20th Century Ghosts but was disappointed by Horns. I tried several times to get into it but haven't been able to listen to more than a few hours. None of the characters are likeable or sympathetic and hearing the meanness their inner most thoughts made me want to take a shower.
If you are a christian I don't think you will like this book. It is very offensive. I don't usually write reviews unless they complement the book, but I feel very strongly about warning others about this book.
