Not long ago, I found myself thinking of another book to read. I tend to read one book a month (depending on the length), and I am starting to make it a habit to write reviews. This is my second review, the kind of novel that falls more into the genre I enjoy (Horror). And as any horror reader out there, I have read many of the greatest authors in the world.

But I hadn’t read anything from Joe Hill.

This book, titled NOS4A2, reminded me of something Stephen King would have written. I picked it up knowing that Joe Hill was The Prince (you know, the son of the King) but didn’t think it would be so similar to his father’s work. I loved the beginning; scary and suspenseful. Getting through the middle was a bit harder, but I persevered; since I have nothing better to do with my life, I kept reading.

The characters were great, from the creepy, tall, thin villain who kidnaps children to the chubby, lovable guy who gets lucky and impregnates the hot girl. Chubby-Man goes by the name Lou. He loves comics and overuses the word dude. Lou is what people may call an Unlikely Hero, which I think is mean as fuck. Only because he is obese doesn’t mean he doesn’t have feelings. He loves the hot girl (Her name is Vic) and their little boy Wayne. Wayne is perfect, but his mother isn’t.

Or so that’s what they want us to think.

Anyway, Vic has gone through a lot. Her tragic childhood has forced her to find solace in drugs, and she even has mental issues. Well, that’s what the doctors want her to believe because Vic is not crazy. In fact, she is so NOT crazy because when her son is kidnapped, she goes to the ends of the earth to find him. She is just more creative than the rest of us and can see and hear things most of us can only dream of.

I won’t tell you what happened because I want you to read the book.

And if you love the books written by The King, you’re also going to enjoy Joe Hill.
