Overall this is the best book from Joe Hill that I have read. The characters are interesting and the story grabs you quickly. The narration is mostly done well but on a few occasions the voices seemed to all sound the same. That being said the quality of the writing and the story were enough to cover for the slight issues with the narration. This is by far one of my favorite Joe Hill books and one of my favorite stories from any author.
Excellent story, and an even better performance from the narrator Kate Mulgrew. This was my first Joe Hill read, although I've read many of his fathers works.
Kate Mulgrew her voices of creepy little kids and the main bad guy will send shivers down your spine.
It's originality it has a lot of elements that represent horror and thrillers but with a unique take on them all.
Actually all of them seriously she was one of the best narrators I have ever listened to.
Vic or Hunter they seems sexy as hell.
This book was amazing. If they made it into a movie and did it correctly this would be the scariest/creepiest movie ever made.
I think it was really drawn out. It could have ended a lot earlier than it did and still be a decent book.
Her voice is amazing. She really embodies all of the characters in a way I would not have thought to read it
No, I think it would be a little too intense
The summary given about the book (pre-purchase) was not very indicative of the story itself, I was expecting something very different
This story is incredible. As I understand it, Hill had definite designs on who would read this book, and his narrator is perfect: Mulgrew is probably the best reader I've ever listened to. I don't know what it is about her voice, but every scene sentiment shines through with perfect clarity the way she reads it. She had me laughing out loud at times, and listening attentively at all times. The story - awesome. The characters - real, gritty, human, not perfect, believable. The bad guy - utterly creepy. The storyline - captivating, unpredictable, will require your attention to follow. Highly recommend this book.
Scary As Hell
Some of Stephen King's scariest.. Joe Hill can paint a creepy scene much like his Dad.
Great character work - good with suspense filled scary moments.
I loved the character of Lou - it was refreshing to read about an obese character who wasn't comical or written with a tone of disgust or pity - he was a dude with a great heart and I thought he was very realistic and genuinely likeable despite his failings.
This book reads like some of my worst nightmares in places - scary kids and creepy Xmas carols.. I only listened to it in the day time! Great work by Joe Hill.
if you don't love this book, I worry about you. so many joyful references and visualizations. I may get the paper book as well.
