Review of Joe Hill's Heart Shaped Box
Original and Frightening! I must have been sleeping under a rock for years to have not known about Joe Hill. This is the first novel I've read of his and it won't be the last. From the very first page I was hooked and couldn't stop. Joe Hill wasted no time getting the story going, and he unraveled the characters a piece at a time as the story went on, and by the time I was halfway through I loved these two people who normally I wouldn't identify with, and I was terrified of what might happen to them. This story was original and introduced a whole new twist to ghost stories. This was a ghost with a vengeance who had a scary as hell supernatural power. Definitely a 5 star read. Entertaining with depth and emotion and a suspense that never let up.
