Horns – Joe Hill (2008, William Morrow, New York)
I suspect that I started off on the wrong foot. Hill’s NOS4RA2 has been recommended to me several times and maybe that’s the one I ought to have dipped into as my introduction to his work. I just couldn’t warm up to Horns – although it had enough to grab me so that I stayed with it (see what I did there?). A murder mystery, an exploration of friendship, fidelity, and true love, plus a whole lotta hellfire and brimstone add up to an occasionally entertaining horror (?) dark fantasy (?) story. I’ll pick up NOS4RA2 and give Hill another chance.
