Horns ~ Joe Hill

I fell like I have been MIA from my blog for a long time!! Well I kinda have been but in that time I have been so busy and still reading, cooking and being a mommy and wife.

After the last book I read, Carrie by Stephen King, I was still in the mood for some thriller novels. I researched some good authors and found out that Stephen King’s son is also a thriller author. I love Mr. King so I decided to give his son a try. After I started reading Horns I found out that his book was made into a movie staring Daniel Radcliffe. The book can be pretty raunchy at times so I’m looking forward to watching the movie and seeing how Radcliffe hold his own with this type of role.

Anyways, I really liked this book even though there were no real scary parts. The story was well written and very well thought out. It is cool to see that King’s son is in the same like of work and genre as his dad. I love the horror of the old Stephen King but I am also liking the new Stephen King with his thriller novels. And Joe Hill is writing more in the thriller genre which is growing on me.

Here is the synapses of the novel from Amazon:

Ignatius William Perrish wakes up bleary and confused after a night of drinking and “doing terrible things” to find he has grown horns. In addition to being horribly unsightly, these inflamed protuberances give Ig an equally ugly power–if he thinks hard enough, he can make people admit things (intimate, embarrassing, I-can’t-believe-you-just-said-that details). This bizarre affliction is of particular use to Ig, who is still grieving over the murder of his childhood sweetheart (a grisly act the entire town, including his family, believes he committed). Horns is a wickedly fun read, and reveals Hill’s uncanny knack for creating alluring characters and a riveting plot. Ig’s attempts to track down the killer result in hilariously inappropriate admissions from the community, heartbreaking confessions from his own family, and of course, one hell of a showdown.

Next book … Revival ~ Stephen King
