“From the very opening scene, Joe Hill's NOS4A2 gave me everything I want in a horror novel, believable characters coming face to face with fears that are primal and and universal, and a plot that purrs along like the featured Rolls Royce, speeding on a wide-open night highway. I started NOS4A2 on a Saturday night, and read until after midnight. Then slept, and I had nightmares. All. Night. Long. I woke at 6 AM, said, 'Damn you Joe Hill!' grabbed the book, and kept on reading. Poet Helen Adam always said that her goal in reciting her creepy ballads was to give listeners 'the grue,' that chill of a skeletal finger down the spine. This book gave me the grue. It keep on doing it, long after I've finished. I dare you not to want to keep reading. I dare you not to be very, very scared. I loved it.”

Description


La esperada nueva novela del maestro del terror Joe Hill, autor de El traje del muerto

Victoria McQueen tiene un don especial para encontrar cosas: una pulsera extraviada, una fotografia perdida, las respuestas a preguntas incontestables. Con su bicicleta puede atravesar un magico puente que, en cuestion de momentos, la lleva adonde necesita ir, ya sea al otro lado de Massachusetts o al otro lado del pais.

Charles Talent Manx tambien tiene su propio don: sabe manejar a los ninos. Los lleva a dar un paseo en su Rolls-Royce de 1938 con la matricula NOS4A2 (Nosferatu). Con su viejo coche puede salir sin problemas del mundo cotidiano hacia las carreteras ocultas que los transportaran al asombroso -y terrorifico- paraiso de la diversion que el llama Christmasland.

Y entonces llega el dia en que Vic sale en busca de problemas... y encuentra a Manx.

La critica ha dicho...
NOS4A2 es una obra maestra del terror.
Time

Esta novela es un libro mucho mas ambicioso que los anteriores... Esta vez Hill imagina una batalla epica entre mundos reales y fantasticos, hace creible esta lucha y crea una heroina que puede pasar temerariamente de un lado al otro.
The New York Times

Con esta novela, apasionante de principio a fin, Joe Hill se ha convertido en un maestro de su oficio.
Publishers Weekly

Como en cualquier buena novela, sin importar el genero, NOS4A2 surca las calles de una trama fascinante no solo en el Rolls Royce Espectro del protagonista, sino tambien, y lo que es mas importante, a lomos de unos personajes de alta cilindrada... Hill impregna las suaves pisadas de pequenos piececitos de un terror que tardaras en olvidar.
USA Today

Fascinante y completamente cautivadora, seguro que esta novela dejara a los lectores pidiendo mas. Una cosa es cierta, sin embargo, trasleer este libro nunca volveras a sentir lo mismo al escuchar villancicos.
Library Journal

Una historia original y, para fans de las historias de terror con un cierto toque ironico, una delicia absoluta.
Kirkus Reviews

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION NOS4A2 is a spine-tingling novel of supernatural suspense from master of horror Joe Hill, the New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns. Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it's across Massachusetts or across the country. Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing - and terrifying - playground of amusements he calls "Christmasland." Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble--and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx's unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He's on the road again and he's picked up a new passenger: Vic's own son.
