I picked this book because I’ve been hearing positive buzz about Joe Hill and they are making a movie of this novel. I normally like to read the book before the movie, so I decided to give it a shot. Joe Hill is the son of Stephen King, and he has his dads skill of making observations that gives the novel a realistic feel. For example, I remember in one of the Stephen King books a character blows his nose and then ‘peeks at it’. It’s that kind of careful detail that provides additional layers and reality to the characters- and Joe has a similar style. The book was fast paced, interesting and pulled me in when I was not reading it. I give this book 4 stars.
