Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill (GR Cleanup)

Heart-Shaped Box - Joe Hill

GR Cleanup Project. Read in October 2011.

 

This is a very creepy ghost story. Judas is an aging former rock star who has a passion for bizarre things and much younger goth chicks. When his personal assistant spots an email offering Jude a chance to bid on a ghost, Jude agrees and gets much more than he bargained for when his past comes back to haunt him. This is an extremely creepy and well written ghost story and character study that I highly recommend. Though nearly all of the characters weren't exactly what I'd define as likable or sympathetic (except for the two german shepherds) I will definitely pick up this guys next book.
