Horns - Joe Hill

This could probably be subtitled Sympathy for the Devil and it was fun to read it back to back with NOS 4R2. And while I enjoyed NOS 4R2, I much preferred Horns

 

NOS 4R2 is more of a straight up horror story. Vampires, scary kids with pointy teeth, and an evil car. Vintage early Stephen King in fact. 

 

But Horns is a little more difficult to categorize. For starters, it's wickedly funny in a very dark way. But it's also a thriller, a murder mystery, and a very tender love story. I loved it,

 

Pleased to meet you,

Hope you guessed my name,
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game.
