    Story
    "Just losers lost in a parody of horror."

    Here is a book I should have liked but it is such soulless creation I could not care for any of the characters. They all live in a vacuum of morality or love, everything is staged for a movie clip and reminiscent of other sets nothing has logic or is likeable.Just losers lost in a parody of horror, waste of money and time.

    "NOS4R2"

    This is my first Joe Hill book after my friend recommended him as a good author,i agree this story was very long and great,i have to give it to the narrator though she was amazing probably the best I have listen to the voice changes she does very creepy sometimes,a good narrator makes the book and she certainly did that,its a good little story a little disturbing in parts,you could imagine his dad actually doing a book like this if you like vampire fantasy stories then this is for you.

    Story
    "Absolutely brilliant"

    Quite possibly the best horror story I have ever read. I love Stephen King and you could definitely tell they are related Joe's book had just a little bit of something better, something more.
    It captured me. I loved the characters. The narrator was superb and I was completely lost in the story and what and amazing story. I didn't want it to end and I wish that there was a 3rd book.
    I would highly recommend this book.

    "Amazing story..."

    I have not read Joe Hill before, and I have not heard Kate Mulgrew read before, but WOW!!! The story is terrifying and imaginative and colourful! Kate makes each character come to life and I am really sad the story has finished...which to me is proof of a great book!

    Story
    "Creepy Christmas read"
    Would you listen to NOS4R2 again? Why?

    I would listen to NOS4R2 again for the wonderful immersive narration alone however some of this books charm is in the tension gained from not knowing what is about to happen.


    What other book might you compare NOS4R2 to, and why?

    There is not one specific book I can compare this to . However the writing was reminiscent of Setpen King's novels.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Mulgrew – was your favourite?

    Charlie Manks as performed by Kate mulgrew was especially wonderful . I definitely got a picture of this despicable character in my mind .


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

    Without giving away any spoilers I was a little sad at what happens to the main character known early on as the Brat in the book. But I was happy that the author Joe Hill didn't just end the story where I expected it to end. You do get a glimpse into what happens to the characters after the main theme of the book is over which was interesting . It also sets up the possibility for a follow up.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys supernatural suspense books. Not your usual goodness and light tale involving Christmas .enjoy.

    Story
    "Brilliant imaginative book, superbly narrated"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book had me gripped right from the beginning. The writing has a rigour - keeping everything relevant, pacy yet fluid. I love this authors style.
    You do have to not caught up with the sweariness, I think it adds to the sheer horror of it all, but some may find it too much.
    I don't know if I will ever feel the same way about Christmas !


    What was one of the most memorable moments of NOS4R2?

    When it all comes to a head at Christmas land.


    What does Kate Mulgrew bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Kate's reading is superb, her voice has real power. She seemed completely engaged with the tale. I think she was an inspired choice to read this.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. I listened to it on a transatlantic flight, hardly noticed the time.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm definitely going to read Joe Hills others works. In fact I bought one today, can't wait to get started.

    "Don't bother."
    What would have made NOS4R2 better?

    More music in the language. Better characters. Better writing in general I feel.
    Story has alot of potential.


    What was most disappointing about Joe Hill’s story?

    It was soooo long and droopy and I just wanted it to end. Not enough twists and turns.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator makes me cringe!


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The character of Bing. He was nice.


    Any additional comments?

    Skip this one if you are not interested in a complete mediocre teen "horror story"..
    I actually wanted this one to be good.
