NOS4A2 - Joe Hill I don't venture into the horror genre that often but in honor of Christmas fast approaching, I decided to give this one a try and I'm glad that I did, although, this certainly isn't a Dickens type of Christmas story! It's a supernatural suspense about a girl who can travel on her bicycle to other dimensions to retrieve lost items via an old covered bridge, who crosses paths with an ancient vampire serial killer who abducts children in his Rolls Royce Wraith and drives them off to Christmas Land. It turns out NOS4A2 is the adaptation of a German word meaning vampire.
It was definitely a unique, one of a kind, creation unlike anything I've read before but it wasn't as ridiculous as it sounds...okay it was, but not in a cheesy, bad way though. This book was well written, entertaining and it certainly held my attention. I listened to the audio version on Audible and the narrator was fantastic and totally brought the nightmare to life! I wasn't familiar with Joe Hill prior to reading this book but I'd happily read more by him and after seeing his photo on Goodreads there's certainly no question who is father is (Stephen King)....the talent must be hereditary!
