Horrorstor: A Novel
Something strange is happening at the Orsk furniture superstore in Cleveland, Ohio. Every morning, employees arrive to find broken Kjerring wardrobes, shattered Brooka glassware, and vandalized Liripip sofa beds—clearly, someone or something is up to no good. To unravel the mystery, five young employees volunteer for a long dusk-till-dawn shift—and they encounter horrors that defy imagination. Along the way, author Grady Hendrix infuses sly social commentary on the nature of work in the new twenty-first century economy.
A traditional haunted house story in a contemporary setting (and full of current fears), Horrorstör comes conveniently packaged in the form of a retail catalog, complete with illustrations of ready-to-assemble furniture and other, more sinister accessories. We promise you’ve never seen anything quite like it!
Horrorstor is not just a book but a haunted, roller-coaster ride that will have you leaving the lights on and looking over your shoulder! The first part of this book started out with slap-stick comedy. Which I liked and it kept things interesting with the story. The second half of the book then turned into a twisted, horror fest. One that got creepy. All I could think was how this book would make for a great movie. I like Amy did not care for her boss, Basil in the beginning. No offense but what kind of first name is "Basil". That is a seasoning that I use in my sauce. However to be honest, I was not that impressed by Amy either. I thought she did have a sour attitude. However as the story went on, the author made you like the characters and I even found myself cheering for them by the end.
