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.

Not just for vampire fans!

What did you like most about NOS4R2?

I assumed (wrongly) this was a vampire story and I put it off. It's not, this is a supernatural tale that has nods to his father's work and in itself is engaging. I really enjoyed this book, it was disturbing and intense and kept you wanting to find out what happened next. Well done Mr Hill I really, really enjoyed this.


What did you like best about this story?

I was surprised how deranged one of the secondary characters was and enjoyed that for something that was deemed to be a mainstream book (see no spoilers)


What does Kate Mulgrew bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Amazing voices, omg just brilliant. I recognised her voice in one particular scene and had to check and just wow, her voice as Mr Manx is perfect. I really loved her narrating this and hope she collaborates with Hill and King in the future since they are my favourites on audible :)


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

A magical bridge to wherever you want, but at what toll will you pay?

Go on, buy this!!!

This is a great novel from Joe Hill, it's a little uncomfortable in places (ok, I'm a bit prudish and the unnecessary sexual usage made me squirm a bit) but overall it's a great book. It takes you right into Vic McQueen’s life from 8 to 34, it really in depth without waffle which can sometimes happen even from the best writers.
It's one of the most engaging scary stories I have read in a long long time and I was really wondering what was going to happen, I felt the end was a little too tidy - it was wrapped nicely and left with an opening for a second novel and the thing that lost it one star; one of the characters which was built up (like all the others) layer by layer to give you the whole complete, damaged person suddenly doubled in intelligence and made a great play which really really bugged me, big time, if you write a character, they are that character, you don't get to add in s**t like that just because you can, it's not right. It was even more annoying because it is such an in depth, engaging story that this almost booted me out of story, also it felt lazy, the scene worked really well but that character just could not have pulled it off like that, he could not and it could have been done 'right'.
But I'm emphasising the negative, this is a great story, as I've said completely engaging and enthralling, I'm been deliberately finding reasons to listen to it from making trips out to going to bed early.
Oh and the reader, Kate Mulgrew, she is just - well I won't use my favourite expression just in case - but she is incredible, absolute incredible, blew me away. She’s got an amazing voice, it was so well suited to this story and the characters, considering the range, she has an angry girl, who becomes an angry, trouble woman, a chilled fat guy, children, a deranged child stealer, an incredibly stupid but dangerous guy, cops and she’s gives them all distant personalities and does a great job with each and every one. I would consider listen to something purely based on the fact she is reading it because she is that good.

So go on, buy this!!!
