I had put off reading this book for way too long. Every since I heard Stephen King had a son who's an author and people were loving Hill's books I was like.. I have to read this now! But then... all these other books got in the way.. and blah blah. Then last weekend someone on my Stephen King Fans group on goodreads wanted to do a buddy read with someone with Horns.... and I was like OK I'm in. Well... I ended up being stood up by this person, but that doesn't matter.. I don't think they could've stayed caught up with me I almost read this book in one day! Here is the goodreads description:
When I say this book is amazing.. I am not joking. I love these kinds of books. Makes me happy, sad, angry, confused, and then finally if it's a good ending like in Horns I feel fulfilled. This book brings you into the world of Ig... it starts off with a bang. And then you go back and forth between the present and the past. You get to see each characters part of the story through their own re-telling because when Ig touches them their inner demons come out. This book had just enough horror to be perfect.
In case you don't know, horns is about to be a movie... starring Harry Potter himself Daniel Radcliffe. I think he is going to do well in the role. I saw him in Woman in Black and thought he did a fantastic job!
The love story in this book was amazing.. and using mores code was really clever for a love letter. If you look inside the book cover you will see mores code drawn in there. It made me smile after reading. I really actually got teary eyed when reading the note. I loved the mysterious tree house. Though where did that tree house come from and exactly why Ig was the devil I am not sure. The way Hill writes the villain Lee was great. I really was scared of this guy. I mean he let his mother suffer for weeks and weeks just to see how far he could go.
This book makes me wish I was a better reviewer. I have never been that great at putting things in words. The funny thing though is as I look through the reviews on goodreads everyone is saying the same thing.. they loved the book so much they don't know what to say about it!! I can only tell you to just go out and pick this book up and you will not regret it.
I mean how cool is this guy (this is Joe Hill by the way)
The crystal balls says:
Sun is shinning!!! Great day to go outside and read this book.
