NOS4A2 by Joe Hill
NOS4A2

Daniel Albert, August 3, 2013

I really enjoyed reading this story. This is the second book I read from this author, the first being "Heart Shaped Box", and although "Heart Shaped Box" was a good read, it didn't grab me like "NOS4A2". In my opinion this newest book by Joe Hill compares to Stephen King's best efforts, and has the same writing style as "The Shining". It grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't release me until the very last page. If you can understand what the title means, you know what kind of story this is and what you're in for. If you don't understand the title, never fear, it is explained in the book.
The bottom line - I am a huge Stephen King fan ( I'm around 250 pounds, I would call that huge!) and I highly recommend this book to other Stephen King fans; you'll be pleasantly surprised. 5 stars
