Right before Mother’s Day, I started reading J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy. I was having trouble getting through it and then I received Joe Hill’s NOS4A2 for Mother’s Day. That did not help matters. After a few more feeble attempts to read The Casual Vacancy, I finally gave up and threw down the book (the Kindle, actually). It was totally worth it.
For those of you not in the know, Joe Hill is Stephen King’s son. And, he’s definitely following in his father’s footsteps. This book was excellent. I tore through it in a quick fashion. Highly recommended.
