You’re only going to end up taking a wrong turn (Wrong Turn), fall foul of the locals (The Hills Have Eyes, Deliverance and countless others), or unwittingly star in a post-modernist critique on horror […]

Read this book with the lights on: NOS4R2

9780575130678 (1)Our May book of the month is NOS4R2. This book is terrifying. Don’t believe us. . . let Gillian Redfearn tell you a little more about it.

Some books are too scary to read even with the lights on. Some are too scary to read even when you’re surrounded by people in the middle of the day.

This book gave me nightmares.

This book still makes me shiver when I see a Rolls Royce.

This book will under your skin, into your mind, and once it’s there it will never leave.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

And whatever you do, don’t get in the car . . .

We did warn you. It’s a very good thing that the days are getting longer, because you’ll need all the daylight you can get to read this book. Next week we’ll be bringing you a very special extract read by Joe Hill himself.

See you then!
