Description

The spine-tingling, bone-chilling novel of supernatural suspense from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman and Horns—now an AMC original series starring Zachary Quinto, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Ashleigh Cummings.

"A masterwork of horror."— Time

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.

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. The journey across the highway of Charlie's twisted imagination transforms his precious passengers, leaving them as terrifying and unstoppable as their benefactor.

Then comes the day when Vic goes looking for trouble...and finds her way to Charlie. That was a lifetime ago. Now, the only kid ever to escape Charlie's evil is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx hasn't stopped thinking about 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, Vic McQueen prepares to destroy Charlie once and for all—or die trying.

    The sentences that seem to cut off? The end of the sentence is the title of the next chapter. Phenomenal book, as per Joe's usual. I love his writing!

    While reading the book I thought this is sort of Stephen King"ish" only 100 times better. Then I looked up the author after I finished. I was surprised to see the relation. While I enjoy Stephen Kings books I've never really liked his writing style. I LOVE Joe's writing style. Maybe it's because I'm of a different generation - a millennial, but the way Joe brings things to life is brilliant. He's not too wordy in his descriptions. He is able to pick just right words. I loved this book from beginning to end. I just have to add that for the people who gave bad reviews because they thought the words were cut off are complete idiots!
  • Fascinating ride!!!

    This book rolls along with a great cast of memorable, likeable characters. Even the bad guy has his insane charm. A wonderfully unique horror tale.

    The last sentence of each chapter finishes in the new chapter. Duh

    I'm always a little sad when I finish reading a really good book. I always try to drag out the last remaining chapters just so I can be immersed in the story longer. Joe hill manages to write a horror Novel that is suspenseful & at the same time forces the reader to look back upon their own childhood. Reading this book has makes you fondly look back upon being a kid and reminds you just how important and wonderful a child's imagination can be. In a way, after reading this book I almost feel reacquainted with my inner child. So thank you for that, Mr. Joe hill.
