I read Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix for Chloe’s Crime Scene Corner book club pick and I have given this book four out of four stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Creative, fun and creepy all wrapped up in one book.
The format of this book was so much fun! You can definitely tell that Grady Hendrix took a lot of time and thought into making Horrorstör; this is a well-designed, attention to detail and cleverly written book, like no other that I have read before. Each chapter starts off with an “Ikea” styled description of the furniture featured for that chapter which played an important part to this story.
I liked how there was a slow build to the plot of this story, it didn’t feel rushed and I thought it helped to set the scene better (especially with the influence of Ikea involved). There were some disturbingly creepy scenes that happen in this novel. I started to second guess the ending but really liked how it played out, I wouldn’t it to be a waste of a book but I would be interested to read a sequel to this book.
I’m really looking forward to diving into Grady Hendrix’s backlist of books. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys creepy, spooky and suspenseful novels. If this book sounds interesting to you, I would suggest to pick it up and give it a read.
Next time I visit an Ikea store, I’ll keep my wits about myself and make sure not to stray off of the one way maze path..
