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.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree...

Any additional comments?

If the cat wasn't already out of the bag about Joe Hill's semi-secret parentage, this book would have freed the feline for sure as this could easily have been one of his dad's mid-80s books. "NOS4R2" particularly channels "Christine", with a hint of "IT" (which it even references).

So, if you're a fan of King's, or of Hill's for that matter, whether to pick this up or not is an easy choice.

Oh, and I was surprised to find that this Audio-version actually contains an epilogue (hidden in the audio-book production-credits) not found in my e-book version - and it's also very well read by Kate "Janeway" Mulgrew, so if you're wondering which version to get, Audio is it.

I enjoyed this story very much

The narrator did a great job and the story had enough action and "nastiness" to keep you interested. The idea of teeth shaped like fish hooks has stayed with me. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone interested in this genre.

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?

Welcome to Christmasland!

This was a great book. It had the lot - imaginative story line, captivating characters, thrills, suspense and the narrator, Kate Mulgrew was absolutely incredible. She is perfect for this book and has the ability to change from creepy to compassionate in one sentence! Her Charlie Manx voice was simply hair-raising.
It also has humour - the scene where Bing Partridge (The Gasmask Man) was in the church fending off the pigeons has stayed with me and still brings a smile to my face.
The only negative I have is that it flattened out in the middle and became a chore to read some of the chapters, but it picked up again in time for the ending. Overall I enjoyed the book immensely and recommend it to anyone who likes an imaginative, thrilling storyline.

Utterly fantastic

This is a fantastic read. I tried to limit how much I listened but it was impossible. The story, like Mr Hill's other stories, kept me entranced from the beginning to the end. Excellent.

And oh my goodness, I have never been a Kate Mulgrew fan but she is a perfect narrator for this story. Her Manx voice inspired me to scare my adult children - truly perfect.

Joe Hill is certainly more than Stephen King's son, he is an awesome writer in his own right!
