Review of 'Horns' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

'Meh' story with great writing and imaginative theme. The son of one of the greatest storytellers alive now is bound to have the charm with carrying a story, but it was tad too long without much turns. It reminded me of A Painted House by Grisham and some wannabe horror author entwined together.
Would I recommend it? Yes, but not to the front of your shelves.
