Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with a pair of horns growing from his temples. At first, Ig thought the horns were a hallucination, the product of a mind damaged by rage and grief. He had spent the last year in a lonely, private purgatory, following the death of his beloved, Merrin Williams, who had been raped and murdered under inexplicable circumstances. A mental breakdown would have been the most natural thing in the world. But there was nothing natural about the horns, which were all too real. Once, the righteous Ig had enjoyed the life of the blessed. But Merrin's death damned all that. The only suspect in the crime, Ig was never charged or tried. And he was never cleared. Nothing Ig can do or say matters. Everyone it seems, including God, has abandoned him. Everyone that is, but the devil inside. . . . Now Ig is possessed of a terrible new power-a macabre talent he intends to use to find the monster who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. It's time for a little revenge . . . it's time the devil had his due . . .

In this novel, Hill definitely creates a world and a situation that prove to be pretty uncomfortable for the reader. This setting paves the way for the reader to consider the events of the novel and debate right from wrong, and good from evil. While some of the situations are pretty intense, the descriptive qualities of the writing make it worth the read.

Very repetitive themes. Seriously, very repetitive. I think the word "horns" is comes up about every 10 words. Possibly in every sentence. Almost all of the characters in the book act in an unrealistic manner, so it was very hard to immerse oneself in the story , as the second anyone said or did anything one would think what the character is doing or saying is completely irrational. Also, 99% of this book would have been avoided if Ig had simply moved to a different state. Not to mention, Miriam could have simply waited like 1 day until Ig left for London to do what she did, and or she could have acted like a adult from the get-go and everything that happened would have been avoided, including the fact that this story took a whole 12 discs to tell.

This is one weird book. 5 of 10 for me.

Disturbing look at human nature, inner thoughts, evil, family and relations.

BTW, Hill is the son of Stephen King.

Quite an interesting story. I like what the author did with this more than I expected. My only criticism is that I wish the ending were better. 8 of 10 stars
