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.

"Not my cup of tea."
The reader, great performance.
The story was not at all what I expected and wasn't really something I would have listened to had I have known.
The charictorisation of the players, very, very good.
It's one of the best
It's unusual and captivating
I loved the antagonist the best. She really portrayed him well.
It made me laugh in places and was creepy in others.
Fantastic book, perfect narrator.
I have not read the print version of the book.
The restoration of NOS4R2 and its return to the House of Sleep
Kate Mulgrew brings the characters to life more than reading print.
I listen on my journey to work and looked forward to the next instalment each time.
I would recommend this book to any fans of James Herbert and other writers of horror stories,
"Very good as an audiobook"
The Narrator Kate Mulgrew, she actually adds to the reading experience.
The first chapter. Eerily written and so well read, I actually got scared listening to it alone at night. That must be a first for me.
When Victoria first met Lou whilst running away.
If you planned to read this book, get the audio instead as it adds an extra level of dimension.
"I loved the parallel world"
The story was ok and I liked the visuals given into both worlds but the narrator wasn't for me! When I downloaded this book I thought it was more adult based fantasy...with blood curdling horror-alas that was not to be :)
"Limited - Basically does not go anywhere"
Limited, interesting book but when you get to the end, you've been nowhere
In summary, I survived it, but forgotten it now
"Rich, thrilling, brilliantly read story"
I love reading but an audiobook brings a greater dimension if the reader is good. Kate Mulgrew is absolutely brilliant. She has the kind of voice that can span genders and ages and bring colour and life to characters in the most apposite way.
It's a great story, exciting, scary and with a very tender love story running right through it. Not soppy, just tender and loving. Recommend this highly, it's one of those stories that you just have to keep listening to. This is a writer I hadn't heard of before, try it, you won't regret it.
There is a real story here and each character is rich and engaging.
Absolutely everything. She is the best narrator I've ever heard.
It chilled me with its scariness. It made me happy and sad with the rich relationships and it was totally engaging.
Buy it, it's fabulous.
"Great well written story and fantastically narrate"
A great story with a fantastic main character supported by a cast of equally outstanding and colorful characters who are easy to like combined with a fantastic narrator makes this an easy book to recommend.
Mulgrew's performance was fantastic and really brought the character's to life!
I was heavily invested in this story, and will certainly be picking up more Joe Hill books in the future!
"Christmas will never be the same again!"
Yes - couldn't stop listening to it
Great similarities to his Dad - Stephen King
"The Creepiest drive ever!"
If you like the Stephen King type then you are likely to enjoy this. Sinister , well developed characters keep the plot rattling along. An horror with kids at the centre usually works for me and this one certainly did!
