    Story
    (2122)

    Victoria 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.

    Christopher Barnes says: "D*mn near flawless"
    "Wow. Well done Joe Hill."

    What did you love best about NOS4A2?

    I would say "Like father, like son" but it is apparent Mr. Hill has worked long and hard to establish his own identity and no one can really blame him for that. What I enjoyed about this book was the rich well defined characters. The tough, always cursing, always fighting Vic, lovable Lou with his blind trust and even Vic's father who always had her back; each character was so well crafted they jumped from the pages and played out thier tale in my own personal inscape.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Vic. She is a fighter and never gaveup. She faced adversities, strangeness and horrors that would make most run for the hills.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Tough to pick a favorite favorite scene but I would have to say end, with the orniments. Too many endings in books and films fail to fully resolve the story. NOS4A2 was complete.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and teared a bit. Some of the scenes with Lou were very touching, some with Maggie where hilarious.


    Any additional comments?

    To me, the story was not so terrifying as it was engrossing, suspensful and told so well, it was easy to suspend belief and let it unfold. Kate Mulgrew was excellent. I dont think the sample on Audible did her justice, she helped bring those characters to life.
