Summary

Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with one hell of a hangover, a raging headache... and a pair of horns growing from his temples. Once, Ig lived the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned American musician, and the younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, Ig had security and wealth and a place in his community. Ig had it all, and more - he had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic.
Then beautiful, vivacious Merrin was gone - raped and murdered, under inexplicable circumstances - with Ig the only suspect. He was never tried for the crime, but in the court of public opinion, Ig was and always would be guilty. Now Ig is possessed with a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look, and he means to use it to find the man who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It's time for a little revenge; it's time the devil had his due.

Satan's not all he seems

This is my favourite audiobook of the year. I believe the author is Stephen King's son, it shows, as they both know how to capture a listener's imagination. The story is so unique that you don't really want it to end.

Ig wakes up one morning with horns growing out his skull. Whenever anyone sees them, they blurt out their deepest, usually unmentionable, secrets. Ig is already an outcast, having been accused but never committed of his girlfriend's murder. With horns, a goatee and skin that burns very easily to a crimson red, he seems to be turning into....could it be?

Devilishly good.

I like my comedy quite black, waking up from a drunken night badly hungover with a set of horns growing from your head to me is a humouros story from the outset. There is a definite light dusting of black humour throughout the book, but it is not a comedy by any means. Very enjoyable book, if you are or are not a fan of his fathers books should not matter. Very nice pace to the story, starts perfectly with the waking up with horns moment and keeps you wanting to know more from 1 minute in right until the end. Easy contender for my top 5 all time favourites :)

Great characters

If you could sum up Horns in three words, what would they be?

A love story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Horns?

Iggy Parish's love story

Have you listened to any of Fred Berman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

First time and I love his performance

Who was the most memorable character of Horns and why?

Lee - because of the deliverable of Fred is impeccable to represent that character.

Any additional comments?

A story about great characters, you feel for Iggy Parish, Lee and Merrin. Just like his father Joe''s stories is about people in desperate situations and he makes you feel for the characters and fall in love with them.
