I'm not really a huge fan of the short story format, but this collection was more entertaining than most. Stephen King's son is talented in his own right, that is for sure! This collection varied in subject and length, with some stories being little more than a page, and others much longer. I have read Hill's two novels, and I think that some of his best characters, however, can be found within these stories. He has a particularly good grasp on adolescent boys. None of these stories stood out as being especially frightening, but they were entertaining and I was surprised by the emotional level displayed in many of them. While I think Horns has been his finest work to date, I did enjoy this more than Heart-Shaped Box.Horns
