28 DoBR: Horns: A Novel by Joe Hill

I’m sure I’m not the only one that saw the movie before finding the book. This is the case. I saw the movie, loved it, and wanted to find out more. Upon discovering it was indeed a book I just had to see how the movie matched up to the original work. 

Thought the book and the movie did have differences they weren’t so vast I couldn’t enjoy the movie after reading the book and vice versa. The book, though good, was also incredibly sad. I felt for the main character Ignatius and how horrible it was for him to not only lose his girlfriend, but for the town to think he did it.

Great writing, great book, and great movie!
