Horns, by Joe Hill

All Hallow's Read!
Give a book for Halloween!

Horns. Joe Hill. Book Review: Ig wakes from a blackout drunk to find that he has grown a pair of horns. [Image shows a man feeling horns that have sprouted from the top of his head] Months ago, the love of Ig's life was brutally murdered. Ig was the only suspect, but there wasn't enough evidence to charge him—or to clear him. [Image shows a dead-looking tree, with flowers and tokens of remembrance] Now, people seem compelled to tell Ig their secrets and their darkest desires. When he touches them, he knows all the bad deeds they have ever done. [Image shows someone whispering into Ig's ear] What is Ig becoming? What horrible thing did Ig do to deserve the horns? And can he use their power to find and punish whoever murdered Merrin? 5/5 Ghosts

Spooky elements: Diabolical powers that are probably from the devil, the horrible deeds people are capable of, the awful things that everyone you love may secretly be thinking about you.

Good for: Adults! This book is extremely disturbing. And very, very good.

This one sounds really interesting. Is it long?

It didn't seem like it! The hardcover was... 350 pages? It had pretty large type (so large, it has actually come up in conversation before).

I absolutely loved this book. I came over from Unshelved today and am planning on reading your archives later; you have a great drawing style.

Just to warn you, I have a very inconsistent drawing style in these archives! But, thank you very much!
