NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

NOS4A2: A Novel

This book will be released on April 30, 2013

My thoughts
This is the story of Victoria “Vic” McQueen who can travel through time and space on her bicycle and across a on old-covered bridge. Here she can escape her life. It is also the story of Charlie Manx who also travel through tis world and another in his 1938 Rolls Royce where he brings children he feels who would be happier in what he calls Christmasland where the holiday is celebrated every day. When Vic encounters Charlie, all hell breaks loose and she is the only child to escape the evil that Charlie is, until they met again, that is…

In the spirit of Stephen King this horror story is epic, graphic and sometimes quite frightening with twists and turns everywhere. Vic is a wonderful protagonist and is Charlie the perfect antagonist. The reader watches these characters develop and as the story unfolds. This one is over 700 pages of pure wickedness.

Book Description
NOS4A2 is a spine-tingling novel of supernatural suspense from master of horror Joe Hill, the New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns.

Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it’s across Massachusetts or across the country.

Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing – and terrifying – playground of amusements he calls “Christmasland.”

Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble—and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx’s unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son.
