Horns by Joe Hill
I know this book has been out a while. It's been sitting in my TBR pile for a long time, staring at me, making me feel guilty for neglecting it. So, after Amber gushed on and on about the movie, I picked it up and read it.
I guess I really need to stop listening when people tell me about how good movies are because it really got ny hopes up. While it was a good book, I felt it dragged in some parts. Ig, the non-hero, had a wonderful girlfriend that everybody loved. Everything was going Ig's way when his girlfriend is found dead. Ig is of course, the main suspect. There are no leads and then one morning he wakes up with horns growing out of his head. As if that's not bad enough, it seems that the horns make everyone want to tell Ig their deepest, darkest secrets. Ig decides this is the perfect time to go search for the killer.
All of that is the really good part of the book. While it doesn't go downhill from there, it does go into some really weird territory. All in all, it was just ok. 3.5/5
