I loved this book, LOVED IT. This is the first book in a long time that I read in a single day. I started reading in the morning and could barely put down. (Maybe I was in a mood or something.) I used to do this all the time, but not so much now. Horns is just good, quick and dirty storytelling. I think I may have liked it better than Heart-Shaped Box. Hill makes an interesting narrative choice to say near the beginning who the killer is. So obviously there's no real mystery, but still a lot of suspense, and a great satisfying ending. I have nothing profound to say about it, because it's not a terribly profound book. People are what people are, and Hill makes use of the dark thoughts that ordinary people think. It's ugly, but it's real too. It's a great escapist novel, and I think I'm officially a fan.
