Heart-Shaped Box

Heart-Shaped Box - Joe Hill 4.25 Stars
I liked it. *gushing* I really liked it! I'd give it 5 stars, but about 3/4 into to the book (the road trip), the mood changed and the poetic storytelling that made me not want to skip ONE</> word slowed dramatically and then picked back up the last 40 odd pages. I'm not really a ghost fan and what made this read so good was that Craddock, the ghost, could be seen and heard interacting with the other characters for a large majority of the book. So you knew he was there, just not what he was going to do next. Not just bumping, thumping, and Boooo's. I'd read it again if I was a re-reader. Highly recommended. Already have Horns on the way.
