OMBC: Heart Shaped Box

510wu8jwz-l-_sx330_bo1204203200_I wasn’t sure what to expect going into Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill. I’ve heard of his work for a while, Horns and Locks and Key mostly. But trying out a new other is a bit rocky. Joe Hill knocked this novel out of the park, perhaps delivering one the best debut novels I’ve ever read. The characters are nuanced and like-able. The setting is dark and moody, while remaining ground in reality and the villain is suitably evil.

That was my opinion of Heart Shaped Box. Next month Ill be reading the The Hellbound Heart, until then keeping reading.
