Thoughts on 2 Books #11

I already posted these reviews on Goodreads.  If y’all’re interested in reading either of the synopses, click the linked title below the image of the book’s cover.  And if you’ve read either of these books, I’d love to hear what you think in my Comments section.  You know, way down yonder at the bottom.

My Best Friend's Exorcism: A Novel

My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix.  I rated it 3 of 5 stars, “liked it” on Goodreads and shelved it there as 21st-century, American, horror, fiction, & novel.

Hendrix takes his time developing the plot, but once the action finally starts, it doesn’t relent. Colorful characters, compelling story, and spot-on 1980s nostalgia replete with period humor combine to make My Best Friend’s Exorcism a scary good time.

Horrorstor: A Novel

Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix.  I rated it 3 of 5 stars, “liked it” on Goodreads and shelved it there as 21st-century, American, horror, fiction, & novel.

Horrorstör is more than just a chilling horror story; it’s also a biting satire that takes the big-box retail industry to task for the mind-numbing ennui and existential angst it induces in many of its employees as it reduces them to a life of ill-paid servitude.

Grady Hendrix is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I enjoyed Paperbacks from Hell and My Best Friend’s Exorcism, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires.

Have y’all read any Grady Hendrix yet?  How do you like his work?  Do you enjoy reading horror novels?  Why or why not?

  1. I loved My Best Friend’s Exorcism. It was the perfect blend of slasher canon and ’80s gal pal. Hendrix is talented, although not all of his books are up my alley. We Sold Our Souls was not for me, although if you’re into metal, it’s probably very fun.
