Joe Hill's critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling, Bram Stoker Award-winning debut chiller, Heart-Shaped Box, heralded the arrival of new royalty onto the dark fantasy scene. With Horns, he polishes his well-deserved crown. A twisted, terrifying new novel of psychological and supernatural suspense, Horns is a devilishly original triumph for the Ray Bradbury Fellowship recipient whose story collection, 20th Century Ghosts, was also honored with a Bram Stoker Award--and whose emotionally powerful and macabre work has been praised by the New York Times as, "wild, mesmerizing, perversely witty...a Valentine from hell."

In this novel, Hill definitely creates a world and a situation that prove to be pretty uncomfortable for the reader. This setting paves the way for the reader to consider the events of the novel and debate right from wrong, and good from evil. While some of the situations are pretty intense, the descriptive qualities of the writing make it worth the read.

Very repetitive themes. Seriously, very repetitive. I think the word "horns" is comes up about every 10 words. Possibly in every sentence. Almost all of the characters in the book act in an unrealistic manner, so it was very hard to immerse oneself in the story , as the second anyone said or did anything one would think what the character is doing or saying is completely irrational. Also, 99% of this book would have been avoided if Ig had simply moved to a different state. Not to mention, Miriam could have simply waited like 1 day until Ig left for London to do what she did, and or she could have acted like a adult from the get-go and everything that happened would have been avoided, including the fact that this story took a whole 12 discs to tell.

Disturbing look at human nature, inner thoughts, evil, family and relations.

BTW, Hill is the son of Stephen King.

Quite an interesting story. I like what the author did with this more than I expected. My only criticism is that I wish the ending were better. 8 of 10 stars
