Heart_Shaped Box

Heart-Shaped Box

by Joe Hill

Wanda Cohen: For those of you who don't know, Joe Hill is Stephen King's son. Like his Dad, he can scare the pants off you and do it in such a way that you are left standing there surprised that you are naked. This book draws you in and doesn't let you go until well after you put it down and leaving the night light on for safety, try to go to sleep. You meet Jude Coyne, a collector of strange and unique treasures. He reads an ad that has him opening his wallet to purchase something that, although he doesn't know it, will change his life and the lives of those around him forever, and forever might not be too long. The ad reads, "I will 'sell' my stepfather's ghost to the highest bidder..." The twist is that the ad is the real thing and the ghost arrives as stated. Jude isn't the nicest, kindest guy on the block. In fact he's pretty nasty. Still, even he doesn't deserve this. I love Stephen King in all his gruesome glory. I love his son almost as much.
