Editorial Reviews

Review

A Head Full of Ghosts doesn't end just because you close the book. Some horror, it bleeds through the pages, gets onto your hands, stays with you. You'll be thinking about this one long after you've read it.

-- "Stephen Graham Jones, author of Demon Theory"

A Head Full of Ghosts is the literary love child of Shirley Jackson and William Peter Blatty, a novel that's as disturbing as the worst nightmare you ever had as a kid and as impossible to forget.

-- "Elizabeth Hand, author of Generation Loss and Available Dark"

It's not spoiling too much to say that everything that could go wrong does-readers will begin to question if anyone in the house is truly sane. Tremblay expertly ratchets up the suspense until the tension is almost at its breaking point.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Paul Tremblay is an astonishingly talented writer, but even better, he's twisted, and fun. A Head Full of Ghosts is mind bending-scary, sad, sweet, funny, sick...Terrifying, hilarious, smart, and satisfying.

-- "Stewart O'Nan, New York Times bestselling author"

Stylishly written and well-conceived, with lifelike characters and an air of plausibility about it, as if all this really could happen. Tremblay, a Bram Stoker Award nominee, has delivered another quality horror novel.

-- "Booklist"

Tremblay paints a believable portrait of a family in extremis emotionally as it attempts to cope with the unthinkable, but at the same time he slyly suggests that in a culture where the wall between reality and acting has eroded, even the make believe might seem credible. Whether psychological or supernatural, this is a work of deviously subtle horror.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
