In the tradition of Steven King, the spiritual father to Joe Hill's style of horror, NOS4A2 is a novel about the tricky space of growing up and the uncanny shit that happened to you as a child It's a novel about the unresolved past coming back to haunt you and your family. Released to critical acclaim, NOS4A2 is the story of Victoria McQueen who as a child in a fit of rebellion, casually hitches a ride on a 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraitha with Charles Manx, an avuncular fellow who turns out to be anything but. Vic is taken for the ride of her life into a nightmarish landscape, into an alternative reality built on the screams of children, a place where no child has ever escaped. But escape she does. But thereÃƒÂ¢s a price to pay years later. And that price is her son.This book is pure horror, but one of those complicated literary spaces where pure horror and pure fantasy can both occupy the same shelf in the bookstore. Certainly, this is one of the best horror reads to come along in a long time.NOS4A2 is a horrifying tale the whole way through it grabs that part of you that scares and continues to prod it with horror after horror; I donÃƒÂ¢t think it's an exaggeration to say it's a scary ÃƒÂ¢ride the whole way through. If you want your scare on, pick this book up. One of the best horror reads this decade and one hell of a ride you wonÃƒÂ¢t forget. Just donÃƒÂ¢t read it at night and keep your little ones close!
