Summer. Massachusetts. An old Silver Wraith with a frightening history. A story about one serial killer and his lingering, unfinished business. Anyone could be next. We're going to Christmasland…
NOS4A2 is an old-fashioned horror novel in the best sense. Claustrophobic, gripping and terrifying, this is a story that will have you on the edge of the seat while you read, and leaving the lights on while you sleep. With the horrific tale of Charles Manx and his Silver Wraith, Joe Hill has established himself as the premiere horror and supernatural thriller writer of his generation.

Somebody who is deaf would probably enjoy listening to this. Then again I am sure they would be happy to hear anything.
Have somebody else write it with different plot and certainly a different narrator too.
I couldn't bare listening to her whining on any more. Fingernails down a chalk board would be easier to listen to.
All characters should be removed.
Ok, so this one just wasn't for me. Wouldn't mind a refund but have a feeling that feature is now missing from the website. Nice one am Amazon, look at how much I spend with you.
I will sum up this book as... Well I can't really post what I want to say here. But compared to my massive library of audible books, this is certainly the worst so far.
NO BODY THAT I KNOW
I HAVE BEEN TRTING TO RETURN THIS BOOK FOR A CREDIT BECAUSEB I TOOK IT WHEN I WENT INTO HOSPITAL IN MAY IT IS NOT WHAT I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE ABOUT .I WOULD LIKE TO RETURN FOR A CREDIT .I GOT OUT OF HIGH CARE UNIT ON SUNDAY THE 2/06/2013
I couldn't even get 5 minutes into this. Very odd. Maybe just me but disappointed
Didn't getto know any
"Good story but the sound levels are an issue..."
Yes, I've downloaded Horns based on the listener reviews.
Yes, it's a good premise and got a great villain.
Very good overall, the chief villain's voice especially, but she doesn't half shout some lines of dialogue so watch the volume if you're wearing headphones. She can be normal volume one second and the next you feel like your ear drum is going to burst. This ought to have been fixed in the mix.
References to his father's work (e.g. doors to Mid-World, Pennywise circus) are unnecessary and pull you out of the story.
"Awesome story telling"
This story is genuinely chilling and creepy. The whole package including the fantastic narrator evoked genuine emotion within me throughout the whole book.
Honestly? I don't know. The story was gripping, compelling and original to the end.
The narration is first class. Kate Mulgrew brought the atmosphere of the story and characters to life.
Christmas land - Where dreams come to life!
This was the first Joe Hill book I have listened to and I am certainly going to be getting the rest of his books as I am an instant fan. I cant wait to see what he is going to write next.
loved it.. great characters,interesting story and well read
will definitely be enjoying more from Mr Hill
"Good book, Great narration!"
Creepy Dark Engaging
Manx, how dark and takes most of the book to know what he is.
Character and engagement. Narration was the best part.
Always when the good guys die.
"If your a fan of Stranger Things, this is for you!"
I adored this book! It reminded me of Stephan King...then to find out the author is his son!!! This is a hidden gem. Addictive read.
I bought this book having enjoyed Locke & Key and I'm so glad I did! It's another winning performance from Kate Mulgrew and brilliant writing from Joe Hill. I was expecting a conventional retelling of the nosferatu story but was pleasantly surprised but this very original story.
I really enjoyed this one. A good well-plotted horror/thriller that never lets up. Hats off also to Kate Mulgrew - what a terrific narrator!! Her portrayal of Charlie Manx is absolutely horrifying. This one delivers! I'll definitely look out for more Joe Hill in the future.
Proper old fashioned horror/ supernatural thriller- chiller. Moves along at a cracking pace and wow what a great reader ! She is excellent doing several men, all different, as well as the women. Good book but she made it great.
"A good story made great by Kate Mulgrew!!"
It's a decent story, very like a Stephen King novel but was improved greatly being read by Kate Mulgrew! She really did a fantastic job and made the bad guy, Charlie Manx super creepy! Worth listening to mainly due to her!
"I really tried..."
Ok I gave this so many attempts. I detested the narrators voice, I disliked the characters, the story was just plain nasty and the whole thing left me feeling frustrated at lost time. Can it recommend for any reason
