Reviews

"Crackling with dark energy and postmodern wit...[this] superb novel evokes the very best in the tradition--from Shirley Jackson to Mark Z. Danielewski and Marisha Pessl--while also feeling fresh and utterly new. Deeply funny and intensely terrifying, it's a sensory rollercoaster and not to be missed."--Megan Abbott, author of The Fever and Dare Me
"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, author of The Speed Queen, The Night Country, and A Prayer for the Dying
"Tremblay expertly ratchets up the suspense until the tension is almost at its breaking point."--Kirkus Reviews
"[B]rilliantly creepy."--Library Journal
"The novel is stylishly written and well-conceived."--Booklist
"Gripping and truly scary, this book feels of the moment in a way few thrillers do."--B&N Reads
"[A] scary story, indeed."--BookPage
"A mind-bending tale of psychological horror is unleashed, raising disturbing questions about memory and reality, science and religion, and the very nature of evil."--Buzzfeed
"[A] creepy, interesting read, great for horror fans."--SFRevu
"Loved it. Highly recommended for anyone who loves engrossing literary horror-undertones of The House of Leaves (but far more accessible) and The Exorcist, and redolent of Shirley Jackson."--Ellen Datlow
"Dark, brilliant, and impossible to predict, [this] is more than a perfect horror story. It's a smart and savage look at American culture in all its madness, and the price girls are forced to pay by a society obsessed with spectacle and sin."--Cara Hoffman, author of So Much Pretty and Be Safe I Love You
"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 and Ledfeather
"A genuinely scary, post-modern homage to classic horror that invokes Stanley Kubrik and Shirley Jackson in equal measure, but also manages to innovate on nearly every page. [It] is unlike any horror novel you've read, and yet hauntingly, frighteningly familiar."--Sara Gran, author of Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead and Come Closer
"Part psychological thriller, part demonic possession horror, this book is a juicy, fast-paced genre bombshell that just happens to be one of the smartest novels you'll read this year."--The Life Sentence
"A Head Full of Ghosts is one of the best novels released this year. ...Paul Tremblay confirms what we already knew: he's one of the greatest horror writers today."--This is Horror (UK)
"By turns horrifying, very funny, melancholy, ironic and, with each page, dazzlingly original, A Head Full of Ghosts is a one-book rocket ride through contemporary society where, if Evil doesn't actually exist in a Biblical sense, we're just the folks to invent it on our own."--The Day newspaper
"This will easily be remembered as one of the most powerfully disquieting and deeply unsettling novels of the year, and may mark something of a turning point in the mainstream horror genre."--Shock Totem
"Paul Tremblay's terrific A Head Full of Ghosts generates a haze of an altogether more serious kind: the pleasurable fog of calculated, perfectly balanced ambiguity."--New York Times Book Review
"...progressively gripping and suspenseful -- (Tremblay's) ultimate, bloodcurdling revelation is as sickeningly satisfying as it is masterful."--NPR Books
