I just finished reading Heart Shaped Box. Hill hooked me from the start. I like the way he generates suspense. The manner that he combines every day activities with the supernatural is quite chilling. The manner that he sets up the first encounter with the ghost sets the tone for the book. He does a good job of creating suspenseful moments as the reader is anticipating what will happen right along with Jude. While I did get bogged down with the latter chapters leading to the climax, I did enjoy the book and would read another by him.
