“Every now and again, a book has the power to haunt you, to become a part of something so commonplace or mundane that you know you'll never view something quite the same again. And so it is with me and NOS4A2. Because of this book, I know that one day I'll hear a Christmas carol and get a chill...”see full review » see other reviews »
“This book was very good but also very creepy. I loved this book, it was another audiobook that I borrowed from the library. I heard about this book and I just knew I had to read it. Audiobooks are great for me because I spend a lot of time in my car driving to and from classes. ”Ria wrote this review Saturday, October 5, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

“I liked this book. I think maybe it could have done with some sharper editing - if it was maybe a hundred pages shorter, it would have been perfect.
I'm highly sceptical with vampire stories, I admit I bought this because it had a car on the cover. However - this is one of the few vampire stories I enjoyed, mainly because of a lack of anything overly vampire-ish in the traditional sense.
Its' quite creepy and Joe Hill seems to have inherited his father's skill for disturbing imagery and creepy characters.
“This took me some time to get through but I loved it. Some parts may have dragged a little too long but that's just a minor complaint. Christmasland is a horrifying place which will probably never let me think about Christmas music the same way again. Definitely a must-read for horror aficionados.”Jessica T wrote this review Friday, September 13, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Very good book. Probably my least favorite of Hill's books, but that's not a knock to the man. I thought the book went in circles at times. A book isn't epic because it has a high page count.”Frank M wrote this review Monday, August 26, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“While this was not what I expected, a typical vampire tale, I did enjoy it. The story line moved quickly, and the characters were a mixed bag of tricks, which I enjoyed. Were there "dad shadows" lurking throughout? Yes, that is to be expected, but not to the extent that I felt I was reading a Stephen King book. I thought Hill's descriptions were sharp and clear and didn't go on for days, and I appreciated that.”Sherilyn W wrote this review Monday, August 26, 2013.

“Wonderful read!!! I only had a little time every day, but was left wanting more when I had to put it down. My emotions were all over the place: Joe drove me down a road filled with anger, tears, empathy, fear, and so much more all the way to Christmasland..”Rhonda Holleman wrote this review Thursday, August 22, 2013.

“You must suspend reality to believe this thriller, and when you do, it is a riveting read.
