LoveReading Expert Review of Heart-Shaped Box

A pacy and frightening story of revenge from beyond the grave. Ozzie-like rock star Jude, buys a ghost over the internet, and a heap of trouble along with it. What starts as a quirky haunting quickly grows into a terrifying chase across America as Jude and his girlfriend run for their lives from the horrible spectre pursuing them. If you like a suspenseful scare to keep you up all night, this is for you.

Comparison: Clive Barker, Stephen King, Peter Straub.
