Geeks Friday Read: N0S4R2

To celebrate not only the horror-fest that is Halloween this week, but also the Christmas edition of N0S4R2 being published, we have chosen to share one of our brilliant Gollancz Geeks reviews with you for Joe Hill’s epic horror. This week’s Geek review comes from Jan, who has given us this great review of N0S4R2 to sink your Halloween teeth into. Enjoy! Determined not to be put off by the sheer size of the book (I was wary of investing so much time in an author I had never read before), I started reading and literally did not want to put…
