Heart Shaped Box ~ Joe Hill

Heart Shaped BoxJoe Hill (aka Joe King), the son of my favorite author, Stephen King, has written a very good ghost story. If I sound a bit shocked it’s because I was. I’ll admit to being somewhat jaded before I even began the book. How much would this book read like an attempt to copy Stephen King? It was similar in the fact that the genre is the same. And I’m sure that he has been influenced by his father’s writing and there’s nothing wrong with that. The story was well written, fast-paced and not completely predictable. Would I have read it had I not known that Joe was King’s son? Unless I read a review that caught my attention, probably not. But now that I know of him, I will be picking up a copy of his next book.
