NOS4A2 is a spine-tingling novel of supernatural suspense from master of horror Joe Hill, the New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns.
Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it’s across Massachusetts or across the country.
Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing – and terrifying – playground of amusements he calls “Christmasland.” Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble—and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx’s unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But
Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son.
if you are a fan of the horror genre, like I am, you need to add this to your “to read” list and once you pick it up you won’t be able to put it down. If it reminds you a a Stephen King thriller , don’t be surprised. Joe Hill is Stephen King’s son. Who knew, right? I didn’t until I read a background on the author and then I HAD to read it because Stephen King is my all time favorite author.
This story latches on to you from the first few pages and doesn’t let go until you are hearing Christmas carols in your sleep. I’m a bit afraid of Christmas coming this year. Want to know why? Read the book.
