Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix Book Review

Book Description (via Goodreads): Something strange is happening at the Orsk furniture superstore in Cleveland, Ohio. Every morning, employees arrive to find broken Kjerring bookshelves, shattered Glans water goblets, and smashed Liripip wardrobes. Sales are down, security cameras reveal nothing, and store managers are panicking.

To unravel the mystery, three employees volunteer to work a nine-hour dusk-till-dawn shift. In the dead of the night, they’ll patrol the empty showroom floor, investigate strange sights and sounds, and encounter horrors that defy the imagination.

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..
