I think you should move it up. I'm afraid to say much. I guess it depends what you are in the mood for? It's a dark fantasy/mystery/love story. I cried at parts and laughed at parts. It's very different from HSB...not so much heart-racing as heart-breaking. Does that help? Oh...and I LOVED it!

I think one of the reasons I love this book so much is it deals with "what does grief and loss do to a person?" I've always found it interesting how one person can grow stronger and one can fall apart.

The first time my daughter beat me at something, she turned to me and said "so how does it feel to be surpassed by your protégé" - - So Stephen…. how does it feel?

Horns is compulsively readable. Makes you want to cheer out loud.

Just finished Horns last night. Loved it! Sympathy for the Devil in novel format. It was heart renching in places as well as laugh out loud funny. Thanks Joe for another great read. Your books always transport me to the worlds you have created and its a great ride! Moral of the story for me was that Man is far more evil and cruel than any Devil or God.

I've just started HORNS so I'm not looking too much around here in case there are accidental spoilers. Just barely in, but it's intriguing so far.

I LOVE this book!!!

This was my first Joe Hill book (see previous, introductory post "I'm Angela...and Awed" on the newbie intro thread) and it is already one of my favorite books of all time. And I'm a voracious reader. And also 42. I've read a lot of books.

READ this!! It's fabulous!
