The book HORNS is the second novel by american novelist Joe Hill, son of well known horror writer Stephen King. The book is currently being shot as a major motion picture by Mandalay Pictures, starring Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame. I guess if you want to go dark after playing Harry Potter for years, you can’t get much darker than a devil.
The book opens on Ig Perrish waking up with a hang over, and having sprouted devil horns. When people see him with the horns, they start to tell him their most sinful desires. With a touch he is able to see all of the sins they have committed.
Ig Perrish ends up using his new found powers to try and solve his girlfriend’s five year old rape and murder, for which he was the main suspect.
While the book reads fast and is very interesting, the story tends to ramble a bit in the middle… definitely worth your time though. Read it before it comes out on the big screen.
