Heart-Shaped Box

Heart-Shaped BoxHeart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was curious and I wanted to be scared out of my wits. The story started as creepy and ended up being different from what I expected. Other people may not like that, but the plot grew on me.

Judas Coyne is a rock star in the twilight of his years. He faced his greatest challenge when a ghost started haunting him. Was it for revenge brought about by his promiscuous lifestyle or was it something else? The story has unexpected twists and the characters' have their soft spots.

This is the first Joe Hill book I read and I must say, the style of writing reminded me of his father, Stephen King. I am planning to read a couple more of his books and I won't mind this story to be adapted into screenplay (just like "Horns"). :)
