Andi I agree with you so far. I'm almost done with the second story.

message 2: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl I'll be interested in hearing what both E and Andi think when they're done with novella 2.

message 3: by Andi (new)

Andi I just finished and started the third one.

message 4: by Edward (new)

Edward Lorn I won't be finished with the second one until tomorrow. But I'll certainly write a mini review in a status update tomorrow. ☺️

Andi After the disaster of The Fireman I REALLY wanted to love this, but...

message 6: by Edward (new)

Edward Lorn Same here, Andi. Super disappointed right now. I still have two books to go tho so there's still hope... I think.

message 7: by Andi (new)

Andi I don't know, you loved the ending?? Still not felling this collection.

message 8: by Edward (new)

Edward Lorn That ending took a lot of stones to write. The entire second book was predictable as shit, and I just KNEW how it was gonna end, and then he threw me a curve ball on the very last page. I still have two stories to go though and nothing helps that first story.

message 9: by Andi (new)

Andi I'm glad you're enjoying it, I'm still not sold.

Cody | codysbookshelf Snapshot was a little boring, I agree. As you know Loaded is my fave, closely followed by Aloft. I don’t remember much of Rain. I read that one *right* after my best friend’s passing, and I wasn’t focused on the story at all. I can’t tell you a single thing about that one. Maybe it’s for the best. Lol

Andi Great review! You mentioned Pop Art, one of my favorite short stories ever, I found myself wishing I was re-reading 20th Century Ghosts during this entire book. Maybe a re-read of NOS4A2 is in order to restore hope.

John Great review!

message 13: by Daniel (new)

Daniel Barnett I've only read Snapshot and Aloft so far, and I loved both of them (funnily enough, it was the last thirty pages of Snapshot that really won me over). I'm sorry to hear this one wasn't a complete winner for you.

Lee Anderson drunkonbookz I was really looking forward to reading this, obviously because it had Joe Hill's name on the cover. I disagree with a lot of u guys when it comes to The Fireman. I actually really enjoyed it but it wasn't a Joe Hill that's for sure, it was like reading a different genre from a different author. I have never been able to fault Joe's work, although I'm sure all authors have their struggles. If this is his, I ain't reading it!

If you enjoyed The Fireman you should give this a try, there are many positive reviews, you may love it!

Obsidian Haven't bought an ebook after Horns.

message 17: by Obsidian (new)

Obsidian The Fireman to me was better than whatever NOS4A2 was trying to be. Heart Shaped Box was the only book of his I loved.

message 18: by Judy (new)

Judy Cooke Lorn's reviews are better better than some of the books I've read lately. "...Easter-basket-sized sack of testicles..." such a good line.

message 19: by Ɗẳɳ 2.☊ (new)

Ɗẳɳ  2.☊ Great review, man.

message 20: by Edward (new)

Edward Lorn Thanks, everybody. I'm hard at work on my next novel so my apologies for not responding to each of you individually. I should be back to socializing around the first of the year.

message 21: by Acanthea (new)

Acanthea  Grimscythe | The Ghastly Grimoire This is such a perfect review. Btw, Aloft hits what UC feels like spot on!

message 22: by Heena (new)

Heena Rathore P. Hahah... I love your review! I felt more or less the same way. I haven't read the Fireman yet, but I have it (it was a very expensive birthday gift from my husband) so I'll have to give it a shot, but now I'm really skeptical. This was my first Hill book and I really wanted to like him but now I'm doubting my choice of reading this one as his first book for me.

message 23: by Corey (new)

Corey I was just going to get the audiobook then read the review. Will try something else instead.
