Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with one hell of a hangover, a raging headache ...and a pair of horns growing from his temples. Once, Ig lived the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned American musician, and the younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, Ig had security and wealth and a place in his community. Ig had it all, and more - he had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic. Then beautiful, vivacious Merrin was gone - raped and murdered, under inexplicable circumstances - with Ig the only suspect. He was never tried for the crime, but in the court of public opinion, Ig was and always would be guilty. Now Ig is possessed with a terrible new power - with just a touch he can see peoples' darkest desires - to go with his terrible new look, and he means to use it to find the man who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It's time for a little revenge; it's time the devil had his due.

The writing is mostly good, but the author frequently does one thing that...

Read back in 2014! Ignatius Perrish wakes up one morning with a nasty hangover and a pair of horns growing from his temples...Horns was a book that sounded really cool, a man wakes up with horns and the power to make those around him their deep dark secrets. And, in a way the book was good, but it...

4.0 Solid story and very good narration.
After reading and mostly enjoying NOS4A2, I decided to give Horns a shot when I saw the audio version was available at my local library. I'm very happy I did. The story was interesting and didn't go the way I had expected in quite a few places. Hell, I even got a little misty in one place. My only...

3.0 Horns
As someone who adored Heart Shaped Box, it pains me to say that I found this book to be slow moving and the overall story to just be okay.Told in the third person, we follow the character of Ignatius Perrish (and seriously his parents should be slapped for that first name) who is still reeling from ...

5.0 [Book Review] Horns
Horns / Joe Hill (Powell's Books) No one would be surprised to learn that Ignatius Parrish was a devil, after all they all know he was the one to murder and rape his girlfriend. At least, no one would be surprised except the actual murderer. So when Ig wakes up one morning with horns growing out ...
