So, I discover Joe Hill through comic books. His series, Locke & Key, was my first experience with his work. Of course, I researched more about the guy once I loved the series. Turns out that he is Stephen King’s son. Good writing definitely runs in the family.
I recently finished his collection of short stories called 20th Century Ghosts. Some were better than others and a few had plot twists I never expected. I recommend it.
Currently, I am reading his second novel, Horns. So far, having already seen the film adaptation of it, the book is so much better. There are more details and more explanation about everything. The movie left out a lot, and the book is immensely engrossing. I’m able it half way in, and I hate having to put it down when return from break at work. I again recommend it.
- Have you ever had a book that you recommended to others before you even finished it?
- Are you a fan of Joe Hill? If so, what’s your favorite thing about his writing that you love?
- Does anyone else get obsessed with certain authors every so often?
