Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Thought provoking"

    a well read tale by great author. I found myself listening for hours. it touchs on the half forgotten memories from our childhood .
    Even the most evil can believe it is doing it for a good reason.

    "Wonderful"

    This book is in a genre that I wouldn't usually read but I'm so glad I took the risk and purchased it. It's so heartbreakingly sad, frightening and incredibly well written. You totally understand the sometimes very surreal experiences the characters go through and really fall for the characters - both good and evil. It's also very well read, I've never heard a book read this well and I believe the performance really made the book for me.

    Story
    "Intriguing and addictive"
    Where does NOS4R2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's not the most exciting, but I found it strangely compelling


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All the characters are multifaceted and it's hard to LIKE them though you can empathise and understand much of what they are going through. They are very real, in that they have good qualities and bad qualities.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Mulgrew’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I had difficulty to begin with in separating her distinctive voice from her on screen persona, but once I got past this I found her reading convincing and expressive. She did an excellent job.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Be careful what you dream of

    Story
    "Shocking but not in a good way"

    I did not enjoy this book at all. The cover tells the reader to expect to be terrified but I can only imagine that statement was made for someone who would be scared of his or her own shadow. The most exciting thing about the book was the tally I kept on the number of occasions the author used the term black top.

    Story
    "Phenomenal"

    The story is gripping and tense, and easy to get lost in, and the narrator is so gifted at dragging you into the story, with superb voices that bring life into each character.

    If you enjoy horror and pass this up, you are a fool.

    Story
    "Surreal Spookiness"

    This book was a wonderful surprise and revelation. I was sure what to expect especially being named after a car. Suspending a little belief allowed me to get totally absorbed in the book. The characters were well rounded and believable whilst Joe Hill's grip on evil and tension building terror was truly remarkable.

    Story
    "Chilling and gripping"
    What made the experience of listening to NOS4R2 the most enjoyable?

    It was a very eerie story which was exactly what I was looking for.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of NOS4R2?

    It's difficult to pick one but I think the children in Christmasland are very striking, leaving you with a feeling of pure dread.


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

    Charlie Manx was a great and terrifying character, he kept me on edge throughout the entire book. He was very sinister and mysterious, a character who kept creating more unanswered questions and more anticipation.

    Story
    "Chip off the old block"
    Would you consider the audio edition of NOS4R2 to be better than the print version?

    Cannot comment as did not read the print version, but would consider doing so in the future when story is not fresh in the mind!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of NOS4R2?

    The resurrection of Carl Manx himself. A gripping part of the story read so brilliantly by Kate Mulgrew


    Have you listened to any of Kate Mulgrew’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No but certainly will seek out her other performances based on this one. Excellent!


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

    I would love to listen to all audio books in one sitting but unfortunately this would never be possible due to work and play!


    Any additional comments?

    Would recommend the book not only if fantasy fiction genre is your thing but to anyone looking for a good read by a quality narrator.

    Story
    "The future of horror is safe."
    If you could sum up NOS4R2 in three words, what would they be?

    This is the best Stephen King book King never wrote - and I don't say that to take anything away from Hill's incredible achievement here - it's just so clearly a tribute to his father.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of NOS4R2?

    The whole book is amazing - it must be one of my all time top 10 - but the most memorable bit for me was probably the two villains; Charlie Manx and Bing Partridge :) they were creepy and scary but also a hilarious double act. A lot of what they were came from Kate Mulgrew's amazing characterisation. She was absolutely brilliant.


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

    Every time Mulgrew did Bing Partridge it made me smile :) 'Mr Manx Mr Manx!' I actually laughed out loud at least three times.


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

    Definitely
