Top 40 Book Club : Top 40 Book Club Reads 2014
FICTION 21 BOOK CLUB READS Top 40 NOS-4R2 Joe Hill Starting with the unsettling description of an old man waking up from a coma in prison, NOS-4RU is a modern yet somewhat traditional vampire tale. Joe Hill’s stor y focuses on two charac ters with similar gifts – Charles Manx who drives kidnapped children to an imagined place called ‘Christmasland’ and Vic who uses her bicycle to literally ‘bridge’ space and time. Charles and Vic weave in and out of each other’s lives while taking the reader on a disturbing ride through hidden realities, childhood memories and Christmas. Hill’s writing st yle is reminiscent of his father’s (Stephen King), creating a very visual, detailed world, well-realised characters and a plot that surprises and moves the reader at ever y turn.
