Description

Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with a thunderous hangover, a raging headache, and a pair of horns growing from his temples. At first, Ig thought the horns were a hallucination, the product of a mind damaged by rage and grief. He had spent the last year in a lonely, private purgatory, following the death of his beloved, Merrin Williams, who was raped and murdered under inexplicable circumstances. A mental breakdown would have been the most natural thing in the world. But there was nothing natural about the horns, which were all too real.
Once the righteous Ig had enjoyed the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned musician and younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, he had security, wealth, and a place in his community. Ig had it all, and more—he had Merrin and a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic. But Merrin's death damned all that. The only suspect in the crime, Ig was never charged or tried. And he was never cleared. In the court of public opinion in Gideon, New Hampshire, Ig is and always will be guilty because his rich and connected parents pulled strings to make the investigation go away. Nothing Ig can do, nothing he can say, matters. Everyone, it seems, including God, has abandoned him. Everyone, that is, but the devil inside.
Now Ig is possessed of a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look—a macabre talent he intends to use to find the monster who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It's time for a little revenge. It's time the devil had his due.

Kinda lost direction at the end?

This was a great listen. Truly enjoyed it. I was always sucked into the story, and the narrator did a great job with the voices for the characters. I felt like there were a couple cop outs (spoiler alert) like when Ig reads his brother's mind but doesn't find out he quit his band until he's told several chapters later? The ending where he went into the treehouse was great, the additional info seemed odd following that.

Started out good, BUT...

This is my second listening of this book and just like the first time, it started out okay, but then the story spiraled downhill. Joe Hill, adds more profanity and vulgarity than is necessary. He seems to be trying to compensate for his general lack of .... There are plenty of excellent writers out there that don't need such a large amount of objectionable material in their stories. His father Stephen King is just one example of that. He writes interesting stories without the crutch of relying or overdoing the trash language.

Don't Waste Your Time!

This book draws you in from the beginning . Seems like a great story for the first few hours - then the disappointment hits you. Hours and hours of never ending filler leading to a ridiculous long winded ending. That being said, the narration was perfect.
