Summary:

Joe Hill, the acclaimed, award-winning author of the New York Times bestsellers Heart-Shaped Box and Horns, plunges you into the dark side of imagination with a thrilling novel of supernatural suspense that will have you flinching at shadows and checking the rearview mirror again and again. . . .
NOS4A2
Don't slow down
Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.
Charles Talent Manx has a gift of his own. He likes to take children for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the vanity plate NOS4A2. In the Wraith, he and his innocent guests can slip out of the everyday world and onto hidden roads that lead to an astonishing playground of amusements he calls Christmasland. Mile by mile, the journey across the highway of Charlie's twisted imagination transforms his precious passengers, leaving them as terrifying and unstoppable as their benefactor.
And then comes the day when Vic goes looking for trouble . . . and finds her way, inevitably, to Charlie.
That was a lifetime ago. Now, the only kid ever to escape Charlie's unmitigated evil is all grown up and desperate to forget.
But Charlie Manx hasn't stopped thinking about the exceptional Victoria McQueen. On the road again, he won't slow down until he's taken his revenge. He's after something very special—something Vic can never replace.
As a life-and-death battle of wills builds—her magic pitted against his—Vic McQueen prepares to destroy Charlie once and for all . . . or die trying. . . .
Joe Hill's acclaimed works of fiction, Horns, Heart-Shaped Box, and 20th Century Ghosts, have already earned him international acclaim. With NOS4A2, this outstanding novelist—"one of America's finest horror writers" (Time magazine); "a major player in 21st-century fantastic fiction" (Washington Post)—crafts his finest work yet. Disturbing, mesmerizing, and full of twisting thrills, Hill's phantasmagoric, devilishly playful masterpiece is a terrifying high-octane ride.

    I was very sad that this book ended. It was an amazing story read in a very great voice. I was very excited to hear that this book is also out as a comic and look forward to reading it.

    I had high hopes for this book. Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill was a good book, but this one was not on the same level. The narration became annoying. I wish I could give this book a better review, but I must be honest. Joe is a much better writer than this.

  • Renee Gray

    I have a new favorite author! I like how some of the story was told from a different view. I think the narration was excellent and I love Kate Mulgrew's voice variations between the characters.

  • Liz Seymour

    This is my favorite author, but he seems to repeat himself a lot in this book. The narration was at times hard to listen towards the end, she read very fast. All together, It was enjoyable.

  • Keith Knobel

    Book is great, narration was horrid. Never will get a book narrated by Kate Mulgrew again.

  • Jennifer Castanon

    This book was one of my favorites so far this year. It's got an extreme creep factor for those who love horror and supernatural tales. At the same time, the author and narrator express extreme warmth and emotion that pull at your heart strings. I could not stop listening!
