“Wild, mesmerizing, perversely witty….A Valentine from hell.”
—Janet Maslin, New York Times
The publication of Joe Hill’s beautifully textured, deliciously scary debut novel Heart-Shaped Box was greeted with the sort of overwhelming critical acclaim that is rare for a work of skin-crawling supernatural terror. It was cited as a Best Book of the Year by Atlanta magazine, the Tampa Tribune, the St. Louis Post Dispatch, and the Village Voice, to name but a few. Award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling Neil Gaiman of The Sandman, The Graveyard Book, and Anansi Boys fame calls Joe Hill’s story of a jaded rock star haunted by a ghost he purchased on the internet, “relentless, gripping, powerful.” Open this Heart-Shaped Box from two-time Bram Stoker Award-winner Hill if you dare and see what all the well-deserved hoopla is about.
I don’t do books often. I only lately started listening to them when I’m on the road and I’ve been on the road a lot lately. I’ve heard some decent books and some bad books but I think this is one of the better ones that I’ve heard I’m not too big on reviews, but this one kept me on my toes pretty much the whole ride and also had a good ending. Thank you.
Narrator is terrible
I only made it to Chapter 15 of this book. And while is most likely a great read, the audiobook is awful. The narrator is so monotone. “Bueller? Bueller?” There is no emotion in his voice for any of the characters. I kept falling asleep and having to backtrack. I will not be wasting my time finishing this book and I wish I could get my money back.
