[Novel] Heart-Shaped Box (Joe Hill)

Heart-Shaped Box

A horror novel that starts strong with a memorable protagonist and relatively interesting premise but soon devolves into a very run-of-the-mill ghost story.

Positive: Negative:
Crisp, effective prose A serious lack of novelty and depth
Cool, dark atmosphere A weak, forgettable main heroine drags the whole adventure down
Likable, relatively interesting rock star protagonist
