love, hate and death
on 26 March 2017
Horns is more supernatural suspense than straight out horror, and is also, at times, a touching romantic comedy. It looks at fear, secret dark desires, love, hate and death.
Our hero, Ig, wakes up after a night of angry drinking and sacrilegious vandalism, sporting a pair of horns. We discover that Ig is the primary suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend the year before. It isn't only the new horns and the old accusations that Ig has to contend with. People reveal their darkest secrets in his presence and often act on their darkest desires, and Ig is, more often than not, who they want to harm. Hill adeptly handles theological philosophy in an entertaining and thought-provoking way as Ig learns to embrace the demon revealing itself in him.
It's a fun read, which frequently soars above fun to become a great read. Horns displays Joe Hill's talent for writing the quirky and the strange.
