Not as good as "Horns", his previous book, but still a good listen.
A car seems to have the ability to drain the life out the kids it kidnaps and bestow it to a deranged old man. Nobody has ever escaped its clutches until now, and it wants its revenge.
It's been a while since I got totally immersed in an audiobook. This didn't really stand out to me, I only got it as it was in the sale, but I'm glad I did!
Nate works as a temp, going nowhere with no cash, so when cheap digs are offered he grabs them. Once he moves in, he starts to meet his neighbours and they soon realise that not one room in the whole building is structurally the same. Not only that, the building doesn't appear to be attached to the power grid and nobody's heard of the landlord.
I can't go into too much without spoiling it, but needless to say the atmosphere when they go past the basement and into room 14 is so tense you'll need to put the light on!
This is my favourite audiobook of the year. I believe the author is Stephen King's son, it shows, as they both know how to capture a listener's imagination. The story is so unique that you don't really want it to end.
Ig wakes up one morning with horns growing out his skull. Whenever anyone sees them, they blurt out their deepest, usually unmentionable, secrets. Ig is already an outcast, having been accused but never committed of his girlfriend's murder. With horns, a goatee and skin that burns very easily to a crimson red, he seems to be turning into....could it be?
