Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

Horns - Joe Hill

The story is certainly original and keeping my interest, but the writing is driving me buggy. He uses partial sentences with a comma split. I hate that. I've thrown many new writer samples aside for it. I expected more of this one because a lot of people really like his books.


I note another of his, Heart Shaped Box, is on sale. Is it worth it I wonder?
