A Novel

By Joe Hill
Narrated by: Kate Mulgrew
Length: 19 hours 40 minutes


“This audiobook is narrated by Kate Mulgrew, and she is AMAZING. A wonderfully written book - 4 1/2 stars easy. But with Kate narrating? Automatic 5. This is a story about a child who experiences something fantastic. But, like most of us, that fantasy is buried and lost in the reality of her life and adulthood. At 17, Vic goes looking for trouble and finds it in Charlie Manx. A creepy serial killer who kidnaps children and takes them to a horror land he calls “Christmas Town”. She escapes him once, but he comes back to threaten her family, and her sanity.”
